Thanks for leaving such great comments about Elijah on Friday. He is so sweet and to see him in so much pain breaks my heart into a million, trillion little pieces.
I wanted to pop in and give you an update. Fortunately, his ears looked great, his throat looks great and the doctor feels pretty strongly that this is not allergy related.
This is what was happening… I would start to nurse Eli, he would nurse really well for maybe two minutes, then he would take a big gulp and start to scream. He was very obviously in pain. Getting him to settle down was nearly impossible. The problem continued because he was still hungry but it hurt him to eat.
So, what’s wrong with him? Reflux. Yep. The medicine he was on was still working just not as well. Seems his case is pretty severe, which is completely sad because, well, it’s just sad.
It’s also sad because we are on a new medication which costs $60 for a twenty day prescription, this in addition to the $30 a month he’s already on. More than NINETY DOLLARS a month.
Something seems so wrong about that. Don’t you think?
But we have an answer and for that I AM THANKFUL!
Many of you asked about Eli’s outfit on Friday and I can’t believe I didn’t share with you who it’s from. My friend, Angela, from Ellie Beans sent it to Eli after he was born. I LOVE this little outfit. She has an entire shop filled with really adorable (handmade!) awesomeness. Anyway, you should check it out. (she didn’t ask me to say this, I just wanted to share something I love with you all, especially before school starts!)
Here’s another shot of Eli sporting his motorcycle digs.
He’s a cool guy.
and he’s much happier, too.
