Reflux Updates

This week Connor has had 4 different doctor's appointments. He has had x-rays, a swallow test, a meeting with the GI Doc, and his first set of shots. Today was his 2 month check-up complete with his first series of shots. It killed me! I cried seeing him get poked. He is very lethargic, has had a fever, and only wants to be held. He doesn't understand why he feels so yucky. Connor did weigh a grand 10lbs 11oz. What a big boy! He can still fit into most of his newborn clothes but I'm trying to graduate him into the next size. As for his reflux we are finally getting a handle on it. The erythromycin is a miracle worker. The x-ray confirmed his reflux, and the silly barium he had to drink made his tummy even worse. We were up all night! The next day included more barium for his swallow test. They did find a minor abnormality but they said it was nothing to worry about. The GI Doctor assured us that we are doing everything right, and we are so thankful he is responding well to his treatment. We have had more good days than bad recently and I couldn't be happier!! I feel like a mom!!!
