Yucky, we are both sick!
We are both sick. of course on the upcoming of a weekend. A very busy weekend at that. It's my nephew's second birthday, plus I have two bbq's to attend. It NEVER fails with us. She always gets sick on a Friday, so we can spend the weekend contemplating on waiting it out till Monday or spending hours on end in an ER. I have been battling swollen lymphnodes and a very sore throat for a week and today I decided to take a flashlight to the back of my throat and see puss pockets on my tonsils AGAIN! I am afraid I will need them removed if this continues. other than my painful swallowing, I feel quite normal so that is good. And Quinn developed a fever in addition to her croupy cough, wheezing and stuffy, runny nose. Unfortunately, due to her enzyme deficiency the only way to give her a fever reducer is through her butt so that is NOT fun AT ALL!!!!! -Sarah

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
I am so sorry that you are both sick. You need a break. I hope you both recover soon.

I hate to think that the ickies are starting so soon but we have a household full of sick people. We have all seemed to catch a nasty cold. Of course school started this week.

I hope you both feel better soon. I agree these things tend to come on right before the weekend. Hang in there.

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.
ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww I am sorry you are both icky today! Get better soon!
Check with your
doctor first!
