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!
Some good news (?)
I haven't been on the boards here for awhile...but I do stop and check in and read often. I think it's honestly sort of a superstition problem with me right now...Isaiah has been off meds entirely for nearly 2 weeks! We stepped down the Prevacid and then gave him Prilosec OTC for a bit, then phased that out. I can't believe it, but he seems to be doing better than ever right now! His appetite is way up, his color is better, and he's more "himself"....and there haven't been any flare ups, at least none that have been worse then they were when he was on the meds. He's had a couple of moments where I wondered if he was refluxing, but he also has had a cold and has insisted that it was the cold bothering him and not reflux. So? Maybe? I keep telling myself not to get my hopes too far up, but for the moment things are good. I am even wondering if maybe the Prevacid was causing some other issues...his mood is so much better and he is eating so much better then he was before. I guess we just wait and see, GERD has a nasty way of popping back up so I hesitate to even say anything when things are going well. Isn't that crummy? But still, I'm doing a quiet little happy dance that we've even made it this far!

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!
We're all quietly dancing with you!
