Kelly, mom of two boys with GERD. John (born 11/03) was on 40mg Nexium til 15 mos old. Second son Brian (born 05/07) started on Zantac. Now on 22.5 mg Prevacid Solutabs plus Carafate 0.5 ml 1 x day
Brian got his ear tubes today
After 6 ear infections since Dec, Brian got his tubes this morning. He was fine beforehand up until the nurse came to take him to the OR and then he started screaming bloody murder as she carried him away. It was hard on me to watch him go but I knew they were going to put the mask on him pretty soon and then he would be out. It was really fast, like they came and got us from the waiting room 10 minutes later and he was back in recovery still sleeping. He was pretty crabby when he woke up and crying alot afterwards incl the car ride home which they said to expect. I put him down for a nap (he usually no longer takes a morning nap but we had to wake him at 5:30am and he was also worn out from the procedure) and he's still sleeping. But so far so good. I am glad it is done and hopefully we are now done with ear infections!! I guess time will tell.

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.... :(
At least you didn't watch him go under..I saw them do that to Sebastian before his endoscopy, and it was horrific. Glad to hear little man is doing well...and I hope this is just what he needs to help his poor little ears!
