Picture: This is what happens when you raise a kid on health food and they get ahold of a Coke! Bad mom, that soda is NOT on the reflux diet.
UPDATE: Isaiah is now 12 and off meds! He is doing great, eating again and hopefully will be catching up in the growing department. I am still in the "hoping it sticks" phase, but we're so happy that he's better!
How's Cooper?
I was just thinking about little Cooper and wondering how he is doing. Poor little guy! Has anyone heard?

Thanks Erica, He is doing better. His pneumonia is clear and he is off the antibiotics. He is also "officially" allergic to penicillin. Just one more thing to add to the list. But the good thing is that we caught it already before having a terrible reaction. His reflux is really bad right now. Much worse than before, not sure why. I called the GI today and should get the probe results. Praying it tells us something!

((HUGS)) Molly Beth! I am glad Cooper is getting over the pneumonia. I just wanted to add that Antibiotics tended to flare Ella's reflux (depending on the antibiotic) as did anything that made her cough.. colds, etc. I will be praying that Coopers reflux will calm down quickly. Poor little guy has been through it lately! Call me if you need to chat!!
Check with your
doctor first!
