ethan's mom
Meridith, mom to Ethan born 4/23/08. Ethan was diagnosed with reflux at about 1 month. He has been on Zantac (unsuccessful) and Prevacid. He is currently taking 7.5 mg of Prevacid 2x per day, with good results. We also suspect MPI, though this hasn't been confirmed by a doctor yet.
Ethan is mostly breastfed, though we are doing one bottle of soy formula each day. We also do some homeade "solids' including, so far pears, avocado, sweet potato, and peaches.
OT- Update to Prayer Request
I wanted to update you all on the prayer request I put out on Sunday night.
I heard from my friend this morning, and Camille (not Chenille as I originally put) was declared brain dead and passed away yesterday. She was an organ donor, so they were able to assign a number of organs out to those who needed them. Hopefully other families will be blessed by this family's loss.
Caleb is doing better in terms of his health, but they have not found the words to tell him about his mom yet. He has a long road ahead with recovery, so please continue to pray for him.
Thank you all for your prayers in this situation. Like many others it is incredibly sad, but I know that God will make a way for this little guy and the rest of the family.

This breaks my heart - poor Caleb. I'll keep them in my prayers.
