Need prayers (OT)
Ladies, Some of you know that we have been waiting to see if the head of the Diagnostic Center @ St. Louis Children's hospital will see Morgan. He has been reviewing her records for months now. He does want to see her. They have scheduled her first appointment for April 21. I should be estactic and I am. However, my dh just got laid off from his job. The insurance is chaning and he isn't working. I have had to take so many days off from teaching this year that everyday this semester has been taken out of my pay. So taking off right now without another income just isn't a good thing. Anyway, I need some prayers that we will find the strength to deal with all of this and that my dh finds a new job quickly! Thanks for reading. If you would like you can get on her website at

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
I'm so sorry Amanda. I will for sure pray for your family. This mess has affected so many families. I can only give you the advice I've given others...use the government and all that they offer.

God will provide what you need!

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.
I am so sorry that your husband is without work. I will pray that he finds something very soon. I hope the appt. at the Children's hospital will work out. ((HUGS))

Mom to Matthew, 01/16/08, GERD baby, has been on Zantac since 2 mos. Aidan, his twin brother, no GERD. Max-ed out on Zantac at 1ml-3 times/day, and switched to Prevacid 15mg split tab 08/20/08. Switched again to 20mg Prilosec 09/18/08 due to Prevacid's restlessness/headache side effects. Reflux was out of control again and had to switch to 10mg Nexium 02/11/09. Good result so far.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I pray that your husband would find a new job soon and you could take Morgan to the Children Hospital for continuing treatment. Lots of hugs!
Check with your
doctor first!
