Looking for help
Luke was born 27 weeks at 2 lbs 10 oz, and is now 39 weeks 7 lbs 8 oz and still in the NICU with no estimated discharge date. He has chronic lung issues from being on a ventilator and subsequently having minor pneumonia while 28-31 weeks. Seems to be contributing to a growing reflux problem, currently treated with Prevacid. He keeps down most of his food, but seems to be constantly agitated by the reflux. And, of course, he is on Lasix because he swells up like a sausage when he doesn't have it for three days. They are proposing more tests to gauge the level of the reflux, and we are starting to lose our minds. Any suggestions would be welcome.
