Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Can we just get a tube and get it over with PLEASE!
Mags had ear infection #6 while pager was down. She was put on zithromax and guess what!!! It's just as bad as it was a week ago.

I got dh to take her to the dr while I worked this afternoon---JUST IN CASE! The dr said it looked like she hadn't even been on antibiotics.

I'm taking her back to the ent (saw the ped today) and telling him I WANT A TUBE! I refuse to spend another winter with one inf after the other. It has to be affecting her hearing and general well being. ugh

Jennifer - 1st time mom. Lauren (6/1/07) diagnosed 9/07 with GER at 3 1/2 months. Prevacid 7.5 mg in the am. Currently drinking whole milk and eating great!!
No longer aspirating! Yippee!
Picture: Why would Lauren play with the hundreds of dollars worth of toys scattered in my living room?!?! When she could play in a box! Estimated move date: Oct. 3rd!
I can't believe they have made you wait this long -- Halley and Maggie both!!

Lauren went to daycare two days last week and already has a cold :( I am praying this doesn't turn into our 5th ear infection of this year. Our ENT said "one more this calendar year" in June when we saw him and then he'll give her tubes. It would just figure that I go back to school TOMORROW! And if she does get an infection and tubes I'll be taking off days right from the start...grrrrrrrrrrrr.

Sorry for taking over your post...I don't know where that little rant came from!

You didn't take over anything, silly. I kwym! This is Maggie's 6th since Oct. of last year, so......

I took off most of today and actually got dh to come home early so I could work the afternoon. I said I WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN! I can't make him take off so I can go to work at a daycare! I warned my director today that this will probably mean tubes in our near future...I was trying to get her ready for the time off I will need!

Tracey, mom to Katie. Diagnosed with reflux at 3 weeks and put on Zantac. At 8 months old she was removed from Zantac as it was giving her migraines, currently on Prevacid. Switched to Elecare since she is not gaining weight; trialing solids after being off for a month. Geneticist said reason she isn't gaining weight is she is stubborn. Upcoming appts.: Neurologist for developmental delay and EGD scheduled for September. She is one funny baby!

Poor girls!!!!!!! I hope they get their tubes in soon and start to feel better!!

Melissa~love your quote and picture! I thought Maggie was bigger though! LOL!
