baby update

First off, thanks everyone for all your kind words and prayers.  🙂

Well, all the major tests came back negative.  But she has severe acid reflux.  They think that’s causing her pain, which makes her hold her breath and causes her little body to shake.  But really, that’s almost best case scenario, in the grand scheme of things.  There is medication for that, and they’ve been told to keep her upright after eating.  Sadly, acid reflux runs strong on her maternal side, and I have it pretty bad too.  But again, this is pretty much best case scenario.

If I learn anything more, I’ll let you know.  Not sure yet when they will be releasing them.

Again, thanks so much.  I’m still swamped with Xmas and selling prep so I’m not posting/commenting like I’d like to, but you guys are so awesome.  Love you!

      Yes, it’s quite common. It’s also, I hear now, probably the cause of most baby ‘colic.’

    That IS good news. No one wants something amiss with a baby but that was scary and to know it’s relatively normal and in the big scheme of things not terribly serious (I think anything is serious with a baby) — well, a relief.

    Thank you for sharing this with us. I had no idea that acid reflux could cause these problems. Wishing the baby well, and everyone who loves her peace of mind. xo

    Gosh I just read the post before last, that would have been rather daunting seeing your baby with blue lips and rolling eyes. Hope all is well today and at least there is a diagnosis.

      Yes, see above. They believe it was ‘only’ severe acid reflux. Even newborns can suffer from it.

    Glad to hear all tests came back negative. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a baby having acid reflux before. Poor little thing.. Continued prayers for all
