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.... :(
I'll be M.I.A. this week...but I will check in and give you updates about Sebastian's appointment with Dr. Wood on Tuesday!
Hi everyone. I am having so much trouble keeping up with the posts! My husband and I settle on our house tomorrow (HOORAY!) so we have been bogged down with homeowner crap in addition to packing (we move next Sunday) and getting our rented condo back tot he condition it was in when we moved here. I wonder if the steam cleaner will remove the stench of puke from just about every inch of this carpet!

This week, we'll be painting and tearing up all the carpet in the new place and laying down Pergo...hopefully, it will really help with Sebastian's allergies and maybe...just maybe!...we will be able to keep our beloved Louise. I'll also be grading 9 million papers as usual (I teach English online for two schools), so I might be MIA! But we see Dr. Wood on Tuesday (and the ENT Friday), so I will keep you posted! I will weigh in when I will get easier after the week is over!

Take care, all, and thanks for all of your help and support with Sebastian.

P.S. Louise is taking orders if you'd like her to make your docotrs anything special.

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
Good luck and I will miss your humor! I would like to place an order for our pedi and his staff who ridiculed me for months for "wasting" money on Alimentum only to tell me it was probably the best since it is so easy to digest and Katie can't have rice or corn. Nice big pile please Louise!

GL and take care! We have pergo in our kitchen and I love it (except when liquid gets on it and you don't notice right away....the floor will swell, so watch out!!). Do the steam cleaning at the last second...then if there are stains it will take a little while for them to come back up to the surface...hopefully AFTER you are gone :)
