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!
Oh epidemic! This is weird...
Ok, so I've never heard of this. Our pedi mentioned when we were in the office with the pneumonia visit one case where a whole choir had been traveling and half of them came down with was unusual enough that she researched it and wrote an article about it. Well guess what?!? My brother in law, who spent quite a bit of time with the nephew, has been out from work all week with...pneumonia. My MIL called last night....she has....pneumonia. YIPES! I'm sitting here thinking, just how contagious IS this? And, whoopie.....MIL finally took Rachel over night for that sleep over she'd been promising her for nearly a year. She was feeling sick the whole time my child was over there, but of course the first I hear about it is *today*....Sigh. I guess it doesn't matter, since we've got our own nest of germs at our house and if Rachel's going to catch it she's probably already caught it. I'm very much hoping that nobody else will get this, and that we haven't started some sort of pneumonia epidemic! It hasn't been terrible, but if a baby or an elderly person or someone who's immune compromised gets it......yipes.

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
When Nate had it, I was lucky that Adam didn't catch it. I am keeping my kids quarantined until we leave for vaca next month (people think I'm crazy, lol) I hope everyone feels better soon.

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.... :(
Oh no! what the crap is going on? I cannot BELIEVE your MIL..I guess it is standard protocol for her: she ignores her own illnesses in addition to the kids'...she is a real piece of work. I hope this is the end of all of this for a whle for you!
