G.I. Specialist

Emma had her G.I. Specialist appointment today. Basically, it was on okay visit. She has been diagnosed with severe reflux and DGE (delayed gastric emptying). Her doctor upped her meds again to 5ml twice a day. She's also started on Reglan at the very lowest dose of .7 ml 3 times a day. Her doctor doesn't like prescribing this so she won't be upping it. She also had us start on Goodstart which is predigested formula. She goes back in a week to be re-evaluated. The doctor would like to try everything before surgery and considers Emma's a severe case. If in a week nothing major has changed than her prilosec will be re-upped. After that there's nothing much else to do except surgery. So, that's the long end of the short of it.

As for me I've had severe headaches for months now. They come and go. I've had them more often than not lately and was in urgent care last night for it. I got a shot in my butt of torodol and some pills to take home. I also have to make an appointment with the nuerologist for a CT and a MRI.

That's about it for now. I'll post more when we know more.

I haven't seen an update from you in forever! However, I wish it were better news. Good luck with Emma and yourself. Do you have any new pics of the kids??

I'll be posting new pics soon. Life has been chaotic and I haven't felt well so it's been put off.

I hope you headaches get better and that this medicine does the trick for Emma.
