Good News All Around

Thing one: I did wind up taking Ben to the doctor’s office today, even though our regular pediatrician is out of town, I just couldn’t wait. He is so uncomfortable when eating, and so unhappy. And who likes to throw up? Anyway, the doctor does seem to think he has Reflux (GERD: Gastroesophageal reflux disorder…though GERD sounds like something you do to get your sibling to do something you know will get them in trouble. I used to GERD my sister all the time…it’s like poking with a sharp stick)….ANYWAY. He is now on an acid reducer, let’s hope this works!!! She said it may not stop all the spitting up, but it will make him feel better.
More good news, even with the picky eating (gotten worse lately) and the throwing up, Ben did gain weight, which means the pediasure is working. he weighed sixteen pounds even today. That makes me feel better. šŸ™‚
Thing two: a few weeks ago I mentioned in passing that we were having trouble in trying to find out if insurance would pay for Ben’s physical therapy over the summer. To make a long story short, they are going to pay, which is very good news, because Ben can go to therapy twice a week all summer! He is doing very very well right now, and hopefully he’ll be sitting up by the end of the summer! Go Ben!
It’s such a relief when things go well for a change. šŸ™‚
