Playing with my PSP software

I am trying to figure this out. This is my first project. I am making myself very angry. I just need to go to sleep and try again another day. Posted by Picasa

A little about Reflux in Infants:

.....As well, at least 50% of infants are born with some degree of reflux simply from immaturity of the LES. Most of these infants will not have complications and will outgrow it before they are a year old. It is estimated that about 3% will not outgrow it and will experience the more serious complications related to GERD.

When a baby throws up after nearly every feeding and numerous times between feedings, parents may grow concerned and that there is something seriously wrong with their baby and they seek medical advice. Fortunately, most babies will spit up and/or throw up from their reflux and never have any other problems, they will likely outgrow the condition by the time they are one year and will never need medical treatment.

Kena has Silent GERD:

Silent GER refers to GER or GERD without any outward or typical symptoms. This could mean that a child isn't vomiting or appearing uncomfortable but is having reflux episodes. Some children may swallow the refluxed material (refluxate) back down instead of throwing it up, in some kids it may not come up enough to actually come out the mouth. This can be much more difficult to diagnose, since the most common symptoms are not present. It can also be more damaging as the refluxate burns the esophagus on the way up and again on the way down. Whether or not the silent reflux needs to be treated depends on the complications that are arising from it.

Kelci & preschool

Kelci is attending Walton Hills Co-Op Nursery School. It is 3 days a week for two hours. She loves it. She has 8 people in her class, and they are all really good friends. She learned how to sing "5 little monkeys jumping in the bed"!

Kena & My diet

So Kena's doctor has restricted my diet since I am nursing her. I am not allowed to eat dairy, soy, chocolate, citrus fruits, or any caffeine. So I am living off of potatoes, apples, oatmeal (plain), rice, steak, chicken, and turkey. But on the upside I lost 5 pounds last week, so I should be able to lose all these pregnancy pounds quickly on this diet.
Kena has GERD, also known has Acid reflux. She is so miserable, she takes medicine every day. She was on Zantac but that did not seem to work, so now we are trying pepsid. She has an appointment with the Ped GI specialist on the 17th. I hope he can help her.
