Sucessfully weaned off prevacid- finally!! And be ware of flu mist side effects..
I am so thankful to God that Amalia was been without Prevacid for about a month now with no real issues!! Halleluyah! She still silent refluxes like 1-2Xs a week, 3-4 times during the day and get those hiccups but she shows no sign of discomfort and she is still sleeping beautifully. I noticed she does this more if she does not eat well during the day and her tummy gets full of gas. Atalia is still on the prevacid, tried to wean down to 15 mg but could not. And those of you who are considering the flu mist- Amalia got it and 2 days later she got a 101.2 fever, low appetite, complaining..nausea and vomiting. The next day she had a very low grade fever, low appetite but no vomiting. The following day she was fine. I'm not sure if it was the fever that caused the vomiting (Amalia always vomited in the past anytime the fever was > 101) or the vaccine itself. Fever could be a side effect, but nausea and vomiting has only been reported after the vaccine was already put in place- not during the studies prior to it's approval. So you may want to consider the shot with GI issues... Blueleopard- how is Eric?? And yourself?? Lorenzomama- is he done teething yet?? BAbyqueen- how is she doing?? Hi to momtohalleyann, maggie'smom, Eddie's mommyto2 and everyone else that I know that I can't remember this very second. Continue to pray for everyone in this website. God Bless and hang in there.

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
I'm surprised that with a little one in the house they did the flu mist. When you get the flu mist you are contagious for like 3-5 days or something like that. And they normally don't want you around people, infants who could catch it.

Flu mist, personally, scares the heck out of me. People don't follow the rules and are out and about much sooner than they should be after getting it. Since it is a LIVE virus, you can spread the flu as if you had the flu. Hence, the reason why it scares me.

Glad to hear your med wean went well, I hope it continues for you all. that is such great news.

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, glad to hear from you. That's wonderful that Amalia is off the Prevacid. I hope Atalia is not far behind. Hmmmmm, that's interesting about the flu mist. Currently, my two girls have a flu (high temp., cough, body aches, etc.), but not sure which flu it is. I guess Eric is next. I really fear the swine flu with his asthma. Eric is plugging along. Had his last scope Monday, after reintroducing 5 foods. Waiting to see whether or not the dreaded EE has returned. Prayers welcome, should know by Fri. Take Care!!!! El

Thank you jedd's mommy! Blueleopard- so sorry to hear your girls are are ill. My smallest one was thought to have the flu too (high fever for three days..just laid there..) but then 24 hours after the fever broke she came out with this rash and was extremely irritable- hardly sleeping at all- and was diagnosed with roseola. (It's a childhood illness- 6 mo-->2 yrs) I will pray Eric does not catch what your girls have. I am so thrilled that he's eating 5 new foods- will check back this weekend to find out the results!! God Bless you and I pray He continues to give you strength and Eric health.

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!
Thanks for the "shout out" Mely :) I'm so glad you've been able to wean down at least one of the girls. Atalia will come down in time, I'm sure.

Mags is doing well. She's full of herself as always. We're having some tests done on Morgan as a precaution and I don't know if I told you we've found out she has mild hearing loss that may require hearing aids. We find out next week. I thought I'd share that with you, knowing what a prayerful woman you are!! Hugs!

Yeah for finally being off of Prevacid! I wish we were so lucky! But one day I know it will happen.

My kids have been getting the flu mist for the past few years and haven't had any issues with it. We have never been told that you are contagious after getting it. It is a muted form of the live virus. I have never heard before about being contagious.

Check with your
doctor first!
