Oprah - Kind of OT
Okay, I thought of all you ladies last night. I was flipping channels mainly to avoid watching the president speak! Sorry, wasn't in the mood to hear how bad the economy is when we all live it everyday. Anyway, one of our local stations sindicates Oprah in the afternoon and evening. Jenny McCarthy was on. Perhaps you guys have seen it and perhaps not. She wasn't the only mother on there but I flipped over as she came out. I did catch a little bit of the interview with another mother who was in a wheel chair and had no hands. She made a profound statement. She said "I'm no good to my children sad and a victim." I thought that was so good. Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carey were talking baout being your child's advocate and not accepting everything the doctor's say about your children's diseases and issues. We can all make the best of our situations. If you haven't read her book it is inspiring. (and I never really cared for her as an actress) Mother Warriors rang out to me and I thought of all the strong and couragious women on here that are fighting everyday for what is best for their children. Just wanted to commend all of you. -Amanda

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 amazed at Jenny McCarthy. She sure turned out to be quite different than what I thought she was.

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.
Yes I would love to have Jenny and Jim over to my pedi's office for a warrior visit about shots! :)

Would love to have seen the show. I have read a few interviews with janny McCarthy and was very pleasantly surprised as well. Not what I would have expected. I guess she's a better actress than I thought!
Check with your
doctor first!
