Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
Quick update on us (and a though on fireworks and sensory problems)
Hi, everyone! I am crazy busy lately getting ready for our vacation (we're leaving next week to go visit my dad in Idaho) but wanted to say hi. I've been reading and praying for everyone but haven't had much time to post, especially since it was running so darn slow! I'm glad to see it moving faster again. We are doing OK, allergies have been awful and the whole family has been stuffy and sneezing. The kids have actually been enjoying track and field, I posted about it earlier and was really disgruntled but we switched practice locations and the other one has been much, much better. Isaiah's reflux has had a couple of flare ups, I read that sports can make it flare and sure enough...it does. He had a couple of rough days after the first track meet, and one rough night after the second...but he doesn't want to quit and apparently it wasn't bad enough to deter him from trying. It's hard to see him struggle...his allergies were so bad last meet and he was wheezing for about 1/2 hour after he ran a longer race, so I will be discussing that with the allergist next month. Sigh. I posted about it and put some pictures on my blog (www.anerissara.blogspot.com). Another funny thing (well, not exactly funny) is that I notice both my girls are terrified of the starting gun when they race. It's a sensory thing...really sensitive to sounds, and when they are standing there anticipating it they really get uncomfortable. I forgot about that...sensory issues make things like cap guns and fireworks NO fun at all. We don't even bother going to firework displays...we just go somewhere high up and far away and watch them from a distance. At least Isaiah has grown out of that, he doesn't mind the noise any more...but he was probably around 9 before loud noise didn't bother him. Just a thought for those of you with sensory-sensitive kids, with the 4th coming up! Maybe bring earmuffs or something if you go see fireworks. Better run...I've got a hundred things to do today and not enough time to do them!!! Hope everyone has a happy and healthy day!

Duh...that should be "Thought" in the subject line....sorry!

It is good to hear from you! That is a really good tip. Even kids w/o sensory sensitivity are scared of the loud fireworks so I can't imagine how it would be for the once who are. I've been following your blog so I will have to check out your lastest addition:) You have a wonderful way of putting things and I enjoy reading it! Take Care!

I was thinking about the 4th of July. i took Q to the ocean and she was pretty scared of all the waves because of how loud they were. I'm still going to expose her to the pops of fireworks to help get her used to them. Have fun on your vacation!!!! -Sarah

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Wow! I didn't even catch the typo, lol. Mags liked the fireworks last year, I hope she still does this year. That kind of thing can change ya know.

Good to hear everyone is "relatively" well.

Check with your
doctor first!
