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!
Poor kid...
Oh, man...day before yesterday I gave Isaiah some candy that I thought was gluten free. It was one of those health store buys and was sweetened with fruit juice etc...but it was packaged differently and I just missed that it had wheat. After he'd eaten a lot of it I realized, but it was too late. Then, yesterday he ate a bunch of dairy (this one was *his* choice). I figured he was in for some gi discomfort, but I had no idea....today he is more miserable than I've seen him in months. He's doubled over in pain with cramps and gas and he is just sick, sick sick. I feel so bad for him! I don't know how worried I should be, it's almost like apendicidis type pain but diffuse and not located in one particular spot. I will call his dr. when they open...but I don't know what else to do for him! I've given him gas X, some Pepto (not good for little kids but I guess he *is* almost 12 and it helps me when I've been 'glutened') and he's had his Prevacid today...I am just praying that it passes fast, because how do you tell when it's a reaction to food and when it might be something else? I mean, I know for sure he's eaten things that will make him sick so it makes sense....but I don't want to miss something else either. Argh, I hate this! Prayer for a quick recovery would be appreciated, I hate seeing him in this much pain!

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.
I am sending prayers his way. I hate it when you just don't know if it is coincidence or not. I have certain reactions to certain foods, but I still 'choose' to eat them. I always suffer the next day. I feel his pain...I hope he feels better fast.

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.... :(
Praying now. I'm really sorry your little man is suffering. It just seems so unfair. Hope tomorrow is a lot less rough for him.
Check with your
doctor first!
