GI thinks she is FINALLY outgrowing it,,,
IT'S OFFICIAL!! Amalia is down to 15 mg of Prevacid and eating all kinds of textures. I've even sneaked in stuff with a little bit of tomato sauce and she has done well!! GI was extremely pleased and wanted me to wait until the summer (when most bugs are gone) to try to wean her off completely if possible, if not, to come back again for follow up. She had a cold about a week ago that led to about 2 days of lots of hiccups but no problem sleeping- she is SLEEPING SOOO GOOOOD!!!! We here are on heaven on Earth right now. She is in a much better mood, can play alone and focus sooo good, talking more and more everyday...(It's amazing how behavior/attention/play/learning changes once the poor little things can get some sleep!!) Atalia is doing great on her 22.5 mg and is tolerating textures much better than Amalia did at her age. She also sleeps much better than Amalia at her age. She is walking 5-10 steps- looks adorable!! I have to thank God sooo much- at times I thought these awesome days would never come. It's been really rough- but now we are seeing the fruits of our reliance on the Lord and patience. Once again- thanks so much to everyone here who helped us tremendously. Those who are in the middle of the storm- HANG IN THERE!! Special hi and how are you's to blueleopard (how's Eric- your tummy?), lorenzomama (how' sleep- the apnea?), Babyquinn (regular pre-K? off the G-tube? the seizures? dx?) maggie, momtohallyann, eddie, emibug (how are your angels?)...Sorry if I forgot someone. Still and will continue to pray for all.

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!
Hiya! I'm soooo glad to hear that your girls are doing well. You have been the most patient and Godly woman I've known. It's wonderful to hear that you're getting your good returns now ;)

We're doing well, but guess what...Mags is allergic to wheat, soy, and almonds. Who'd have guessed that mess? She drank soy formula for 4mos. Oh well. It's not bad.

Atalia looks more like her dad if I'm picturing him right. Is that what people say? They're both cuties and their cousin is too.

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.
So happy to hear that you have made it to the other side. Good Job and Praise the Lord!

Pictured: G'mom w/3 kids. I'm mom to 1 angel Melissa (dec'd 11/92 - hypoplastic left-heart syn.)
2 healthy daughters (knock wood) Cory (16), Kim (11) & Eric (4) diagnosed with e.e. (scoped 8/08), GERD & severe food/seasonal allergies, asthma. Cried non-stop first 17 mths. of life Found out he is allergic to cow's milk, soy, eggs, and peanuts. Takes Prevacid, Neocate One Plus & Flovent.
Hi Mely, I still check into PAGER, even though I am on other eos./allergy sites these days. I'm really glad to hear that both girls are doing so well. There is nothing better in life than healthy children. As far as Eric, we are going to start a pure elemental formula only diet later this week. I'm sure it will be hard when he asks for a banana (his favorite) or anything to eat, but this is what we must do to stop further damage to his esophagus. Thanks for asking about us! Ellen

MAggie- I would have never suspected those allergies! Yeah, most people say Atalia looks more like her dad- but I think that's just because she is chunky =). We think she looks more like me. Blueleopard- I'm so sorry to hear Eric will have to have an all liquid diet. I hope that takes care of things and that soon you will be able to start adding solids. Will continue to pray for you. Take care and God Bless!

Well yay for Amalia finally outgrowing her reflux!!! That gives all of us some hope I'm sure :) The ability to eat anything is a very good thing too! It must be great to not worry about certain foods aggrivating her reflux. I'm very happy for you :)
Check with your
doctor first!
