Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
Halley is home
The surgery went great...only took about 30 minutes, including anesthesia. She screamed like a banshee for over an hour after she came out of anesthesia and most of the way home. She's sleeping now (courtesy of Tylenol with codeine). Hopefully she'll feel a little better when she gets up. The doctor said it could be a few days. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!!

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.... :(
Great news! I am glad it went well and was over quickly. Sebastian screamed like a banshee when he came out of anesthesia after his scope, too. I guess they get really disoriented? hope she has a very speedy recovery!!

I am Jacky, mommy to Joslyn Olivia (April 2008) and Katelyn Isabel (November 2009).
Joslyn was dx'ed with Silent Reflux with breath apnea at 5 days old. VERY SCARY!
Katelyn is a spitter reflux baby. Started at 3 days old as well. (Both were/are breast fed.. symptoms came on when my milk came in).
Joslyn has been reflux free since she was 12 months (suffered poor weight gain for a few months) and Katelyn is now on Zantac... waiting to see if it works.
so glad she is home and sleeping! Great news!

Our 1 year old daughter has silent reflux, hypotonia as well as benign external hydrocephalus. We are currently weaning onto whole milk (we'll see if it works) and she is also on Prevacid 15mg per day.
Glad everything went ok! I guess too their confused as to where they are and what's going on so maybe they're screaming out of a little fear and such. I'm glad she's getting some rest. :)

Morgan was the same way when she had her adenoids removed and 4th set of tubes in. A was just fine though. I hope she has a speedy recovery.

Well, the afternoon is not going so great...lots of crying. Guess I can't blame her. The weird thing is that she is doing a lot of silent refluxing and then screaming afterward, so it must be hurting her. She hasn't done that in MONTHS. I wonder if it's because she has a pretty empty stomach and the anesthesia made things floppy? I haven't been able to coax her to take her Mylanta yet.
