New Update

Gentire has BOTOX!!!!! Not my mom......but me! I have a certain muscle in my stomach that is over active and in a constant spasm so they went in yesterday and surgically placed some botox in that muscle to cause it to reset itself (hopefully) and allow my stomach to work better. We won't know if it helps for a week or two. If this does not work, they have recommended that I receive the GI Pacemaker. We will be working towards this in the mean time and be certain that we can move forward as soon as possible. The doctors were great, the hospital nice.....but not as nice as Primary Children's. It was so helpful to have a team of doctors that specialize in motility disorders. We still have much to understand and I still can't eat but hopefully I will be able to soon. I am a little disappointed that I didn't get the procedure this time, but I know that there is a process and that eventually I will get better. It is nice to spend time with my mom but we miss my dad. I am anxious to be home and have my friends and family around me. Thank you for your prayers and faith..........please keep praying! XOXOX


  1. Gentrie, you are so brave! It breaks my heart to think about what you and your family is going through. I watched Karli suffer for over a month last year and it was heart wrenching to watch her endure so much pain. I know that your parents would trade places with you in a second if they could. I'm so glad you have found some doctors that can help you get better. I just wanted you to know that we think about you often and you're in our hearts & prayers.
    Love ya!

  2. Gentrie,
    I love you girl and really miss you. I need to come visit you since last time we (Annie and I) came by you had just left to go back to the hospital for a test. So when you are back I will be there talking to you, next to you, there for you! I miss you so much.
    Love you,
