With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Nippy Twinkle Toes has EoE

Nippy is our elf.

With  heavy heart I learned he has been fighting a silent battle with EoE.

We had no idea.

I thought the rosey cheeks were normal but turns out it’s eczema.

Poor Nippy.

He definitely chose the right family to join.

Last night Nippy Twinkle Toes underwent surgery and he received a feeding tube just as Gage and Tinleigh did. His EoE was out of control and they couldn’t get his numbers down. We are really praying for a clear scope for Nippy come March.wpid-20141215_222503.jpgwpid-20141215_222526.jpgwpid-20141215_222547.jpg

We wish Nippy the best of luck.
