How Could Everything Be So Right? (sort of OT)
Everything is going right in my life right now. Quinn is healthier than I would have ever thought possible. She is doing marvelous. And things are absolutely *PERFECt* with my man. I don't deserve this! Last night, I was at his house. quinn was sleeping. He stepped outside for a smoke (it's the only negative about him). He opens the front door and tells me to go outside with him. I stepped outside and he holds me in his arms in the moonlit sky and starts to slow dance with me. That one song from Armageddon by Arosmith "I don't want to miss a thing", was playing at the next door neighbor's house. He asked me if I heard it and I said yeah and he said that it just made him think of me because when I spend the night with him, he doesn't want to leave me when he has to go to work. He does the sweetest things. Sometimes, when he thinks I'm sleeping, he will kiss my forehead and tell me that I'm beautiful. He will call me from work on a busy day just to tell me that he thinks I'm beautiful and he misses me. One time, he got up with Quinn on an early morning just so that way I could sleep in. I had given up on men before I met him. Even if we don't stay together forever, he has taught me that there really are good men out there. *sorry this was so off topic, but I had to share since all of you internet friends have a special place in my life too. -Sarah

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.
that is sooooooo sweet!!! Good for you!!!!!!!! I love happy endings!

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.... :(
Yay! I have been waiting for man updates!! And yes, you do deserve a man to treat you like this. He sounds like an actual *man* and not a *piece of crap in man's clothing* that we have all encountered over the years. And you know, it might end up lasting forever. My husband and I met when we were seniors in college, and here we are TEN years later. God, I am old. But that is not the point. The point is that he was sweet and loving like your man back then (as much as one can be when in college), and he is now, too. It takes a lot of work, as you know, but it can be forever.

Yay for you and Quinn!!

U deserve this. You deserve to have someone hold you and love u every day. U have been through so much and hung in there through it all. It is amazing to come home at the end of a long day and know someone will be waiting there for u and ready to love u.

I am so glad that he got up that morning and took care of her so u could sleep in. I hope this continues as u need to know he will be there for Quinn as well.

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
There are some out there, it just takes so LONG to find them! I'm so happy for you (and Quinn). You deserve to be treated like a queen and your dd like the princess she's made sure she is! There's just not enough sweetness out there, so savor all you get, lady! And one negative....not so bad. I still say it's only negative if he does it disrespectfully.

Everyone deserves happiness, Sarah -- no one more than you and Quinn! I am so happy for you that you are feeling so loved. Are you familiar with the singer/song-writer Heather Nova? She has a song called (I think) "Give You My Shoulder" that reminds me if you in some ways...check it out sometime if you get a chance....
Check with your
doctor first!
