+2042 - High Alkaline Phosphotase (liver Enzyme)

David has a very high Alkaline Phosphotase (liver enzyme) of 286 (normal is 40-120).

He had vomiting when we went to Utah (Feb 26) and again (March 15).  It's not the stomach flu.  His WBC was slightly elevtated (14.0) so maybe he had an intestinal thing going on.

He's doing better now but low on energy and not a big appetite.  He'll have an ultrasound to check for gallstones on 3/22/12.  More info to follow.

Here are some photos of a recent 7-mile hike we took to Windy Hill.

He did not have a lot of energy this day so we pushed the boys a lot.

We are about 1/2 through a 7 mile hike.

Hi Aimee,

Nice pics! 7 mi!!! That's a lot....just amazing!

Sorry to ear about David's liver enzymes. Hope it is just a viral something and subsides soon. Good Luck with the u/s tomorrow. Thanks for keeping us posted.

Take care,

Sumathi

Hi David
My name is Jenna, you are a brave, courageous fighter and an inspiration.
I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

Each of us are Special
Each of us different,
No one is the same
Each of are us are unique in our own way,
Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
It doesen't matter what other's say
we are special anyway.

Aimee,

I have been thinking about you and your family a lot lately. I hope that David's enzymes are down and that he is doing well.
