Mommy of Hunter born 07/16/08. Tongue tied at birth, never learned to bf well. Diagnosed with silent reflux at 5 weeks with barrium swallow. Fed on expressed breast milk. Currently on Gaviscon, Omeprizole (prilosec), Domperidone (Motilium)have yet to see medication have any effect on him. His biggest symptom is his distain of feeding time- he hates it. . Hospitalised for two weeks in September, fed through ng tube.
Second feeding evaluation tomorrow!
So this pedi (God bless her) called this morning and said she pulled some strings and got us a second feeding eval tomorrow. I had been calling the woman who did the first one concerned about the choking and she just stopped calling me back. My GP told me "this is what reflux does" so I pretty much thought I we would just have to live with it. But this pedi told me she thought the situation was not safe!! THANK YOU!! NOW, Im just SO scared he is going to feed perfectly fine tomorrow-like Im REALLY worried about it. He chokes at least once every feed so I keep telling myself it will happen but if it doesnt .... Im totally SOL. Im sure you all know that feeling when you go to the doc and you think "THIS time they might be able to help us" and they never do?? Well, if they can see the choking/coughing episodes they cant let us go without help... Pray for us that he has a good 'ole choke tomorrow around 4PM GMT!!!!
