Reflux Update

We took "A" back the GI at Children’s Hospital earlier in the week and have made a few changes. The good news is that "A" gained 7oz in a month and she is happy and talkative. The bad news is that her reflux is still really bad. After we started solids we had to stop them because they were making is so that she didn't sleep at night. Once we stopped them her sleep got a little better but it still wasn't where it was prior to solids. The GI told us that she wasn't 100% sure that the solids were only to blame for her lack of sleeping but to stay off of them while we figure out what the cause is. We decided to start her on Zantac once a day in addition to her Pravacid. We will try this for 2 weeks and see if it helps. If not then I will go off of soy and see if that helps. I am really hoping that the Zantac will help because I don't know what I will do if I have to go off of soy too. I am already missing milk so much and to get rid of soy too, I might just loose it.

Saturday while running errands we decided to stop and have lunch as we were all hungry and we weren't close to being done. We decided to stop at Panda Express for lunch. I had been there before and had asked the people if the food I was interested in had milk, they told me "no." I thought I was safe and I ordered. I really enjoyed it and didn't think anything else until that night. "A" was very fussy and just wasn't herself, I thought that maybe it was from being in the car all day, but it just wasn't right. I decided to look up the food on Panda Express's website and low and behold 3/4 of what I got had milk in it! Who would think that orange chicken and honey walnut shrimp has milk in it? I know that I didn't! So "A" hasn't had a good night sleep for now going on 2 nights. Knowing her it will last a few more before she starts feeling better.

Anyways, I know that things are going to get better even if that means that I have to go off of soy too.
