Just a quick Trace update. We're headed to Pittsburgh Children's Hospital on Monday to meet with the gastroenterology department. We're going to be examining Trace's acid reflux further and see if we can get to the root of the problem.
Since his choking/stop breathing incident a couple weeks ago, he's gagged over 15 times. This is while being on a 1.6 mL of Zantac twice a day. Sometimes when he's eating, sometimes when he's just sitting there playing. It also seems to me that his tongue is too big for his mouth. (For real!)
Keep us in your thoughts and prayers, please. I need the strength to be Trace's advocate and stand up for the fact that he needs more tests done. I am NOT good at really speaking to how bad conditions are and once this resulted in me being hospitalized for three days. I need to stand up and be heard for my son.
This is putting so much stress on me, I feel like I'm cracking under the pressure. I'm edgy, nervous and ready for some sort of plan or answers. Even if the answer is just "yep, it's acid reflux. He'll grow out of it." I will feel better. I'm trying.
