emi update
Double ear infection and possible UTI. Her girl parts are all red (happened last two times she had UTI's and Kidney infection) and she is still grabbing at her diaper when she is wet but DH said NO to a cathader urine collection, kinda pissed me off.

He thinks i am being sadistic b/c the antibiotics will clear the UTI too. I just want to be sure cause i need to know so she can have a recheck to find out if the UTI has cleared AND if i need to bitch out the urologist and get her back on antbx for her kidney reflux.

oh yeah she was cold, not like super cold with goose bumps but cooler then usual. i didn't know blue/cold was so common, that makes me feel better! thanks :) i gotta go emily's climbing on me and audrey needs feeding....*sigh* long day.

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.
Well, the double ear infections totally explains how she is acting...I can speak from experience (NAte has it right now) I know how 2 kiddos will keep you on your toes all day...I hope you can all get some rest today. Thanks for the update.

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.... :(
Well, I am so glad you know now! Hopefully everything clears up FAST. Oh, and glad you think that might be what it is in ref: blue lips. Oh, I also still get them when I stay in the pool or the bathtub (like I actually have time to swim OR bathe. Ha! Ha!) too long...so try not to get worried if that ever happens to Emi...

and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
Well, I really hate to say that I'm glad that it's infections causing the problems, but thank goodness it's something fairly easily fixable. Poor Emi, she's probably been feeling like poop. Hang in there Kat.
