All in a day's work.
The day has finally come. On Monday I will have an upper endoscopy and liver biopsy. They will be performed one after the other under the care of Drs. at MS CHONY. The metabolic geneticist and the hepatologist (liver specialist) will each study a sample of my liver. The gastroenterologist will be looking for any physical signs that would make eating uncomfortable for me. They will put me under general anesthesia so I won't feel anything. I really don't like anesthesia, it is scary. Luckily one of my nurses from the NICU, Katie, will be there. I really like her - last time I was at the hospital we cuddled.
