And hopeful. That is how I felt this morning when we met with Dr. Sullivan, the gastroenterologist. He told me there is most likely something else going on with Chloe beyond the normal reflux most babies experience. He prescribed Prevacid which he said is a better medication then our current one. He is not completely sure what is causing the problem so we going to do a few things. The first change is the medication, second is trying her on rice or soy milk because she may have a protein allergy, third we are having an x-ray/upper G.I. study done to make sure her anatomy is formed correctly, and finally an endoscopy. If steps 1,2, and 3 work or produce positive changes, then we won't do the endoscopy. The endoscopy is a short procedure which she will have to be put to sleep for, but will give conclusive answers. Dr. Sullivan did say that her sleep problems could very well be a result of what is going on internally.
