Kathryn, Pager Volunteer and mommy to Emily Mia 02/04/07. 3 years old with GERD. 30mg Prevacid and Pepcid AC. Mylanta needed for flares. Failed prilosec med switch. Tried and failed many med weans but GERD and pain are well controlled. Functional constipation. Reoccurring SBBO. Suspected IBD or autoimmune disease. Resolved issues: MSPI, CSID (acquired), Stage 2 kidney reflux, Chronic diarrhea.
Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
GI apt made and dr will call
I got the call from the health dept today that Audrey's medipass went through and her PCP will be changed back to her pediatrician on November 1st. The nurse that called me has a son with GI problems too and she really felt for Audrey's situation but she said that with the insurance changing in two weeks they could not give us a referral to a GI in that short of time, they couldn't even give us Dr. I. (emily's GI)

She said, from experience, it would be more of a paperwork nightmare for them to see her get her records from the pedi signed off then to release them back two weeks later. Plus i found out that if the pedi signs the release of her records they will NEVER accept her back as a patient. So if you are not lost reading that already, we got the appointment made to Dr. I. on Nov. 3rd!

While i was making Audrey's appointment I also talked to the GI nurse about emily. After a few questions she said that Dr. I. actually wanted to speak to me about a few things and that he would call me tomorrow. Hopefully he had a few ideas on Emily's mysterious belly problems. Maybe my mention of abdominal migraines got him thinking about her symptoms. I really hope he has some good news.
