Adriane Reese 05/16/07; seemingly healthy when born; diagnosed with MSPI, severe Reflux, Apnea, Ashtma, Epilepsy, and severe food allergies(rice, corn, milk, soy, eggs, oats, wheat, beef, chicken, squash, pumpkin, avocado, etc.);On apnea monitor, seems to be tolerating RCF w/carbohydrate mixed in; on Zyrtec, Xopenex, Prevacid
Adriane's tests
Adriane has her ultrasounds and VCUG this morning. She isn't allowed to eat but she can drink some. They would prefer water but I have a feeling she will be having some formula. It isn't scheduled until 9:30 so it is going to be a long morning without food, now that she is eating again. One test doesn't want food in her tummy the other requires her to be well hydrated and have a full bladder. It should be interesting! We probably won't get any results today but please keep us in your prayers so that she will be cooperative and they will get what they need. Thanks! -Amanda

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
