Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Hi there. Thanks for asking. Yes, he certainly is a lot better than that...althoguh he is nowhere near his usual chipper self. He is waking randomly thorughout the night screaming now...two hours after bedtime, then 20 minutes later...then an hour later...there's really no pattern to it. The problem is that he still is uncomfortable. He is now refusing solids, and I am basically forcing them into his mouth (I am probably going to give him real feeing problems because of this) or waiting 5 minutes or so between bites. Loads of fun. The GI nurse was supposed to call yesterday about his medication (I begged for a change), but I never heard from her. I just left her a message. We'll see how that goes. Let's just sya I am VERY unimpressed wtih this hospital. Hope all is well wtih you and Katie....
Check with your
doctor first!
