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!
rant update
First of all, please forgive me for my dissing my hubby that way. I was really mad, and in some ways rightfully so...but as several of you correctly pointed out, men just deal with things differently than we do. I think at heart dh was mainly concerned for the side effects of the Prevacid, and the other (garbage) he was throwing out in the conversation was just his way of discussing his feelings on the issue. I still really wish he would do the research and see what happens when reflux isn't under control, and that he'd be more compassionate about how Isaiah feels...but hopefully we'll learn from the fight and be better able to convey our concerns about the kids' health to eachother. Sigh. I think a huge part of my feelings yesterday stem from just being sooooo frustrated by this disease and soooo tired of it. I just wish it would go away and leave our little ones alone! And dealing with doctors, insurance companies, and medications does get so old, I know most of you have had to deal with even more than I have and it just gets....old. Anyway, thank you all for your love and support and for listening to me go off...it's such a blessing to have you here and to know that you understand!

New day new perspective?! We all have to rant once ina while. I know i have my fair share especially on this board. I hope that things will get better and he will come around or perhaps this disease will get better. We can all pray and hope for it.

My name is being used fraudently to ill represent me. Please be cautious of any information you receive with my name. including engi.nowaira.net, engi@nowaira.net, Engi@nowaira.us, anything from anyone claiming to be Engi Nowaira online. Otherwise, I will be representing myself in person so that everyone will have opportunity to identify me in person.
My previous drivers license was also stolen. The new one has extra security features on it.
It is hard sometimes to get through men's diff. way of dealing, especially when it interferes with what we know is best for our little one's.

Hugs and I hope things get easier soon.

Check with your
doctor first!
