Today Nora had a HIDA scan to see if her liver and internal “plumbing” are working properly. They inserted dye into her veins and scan her throughout the day to see if the dye flows through all of the organs properly. The dye made it to her liver but did not pass through to her gallbladder and intestines. The doctors will repeat the test next week and hope to see the dye move through to her intestines the second time around. Increased feedings to 6 ml/hr of Elecare through G-tube in p.m.
