Over the weekend Naomi felt a little better on the new medicine, but nothing very significant so I called the doctor on Monday. He said to come to their office early this morning and be prepared to admit her to the hospital. Of course,yesterday she started feeling better. When we got to the doctors office he said that since she wasn't worse on the medicine it was a step in the right direction. If he admitted her he would put a feeding tube in so her esophagus could rest and it would just buy her some time. So, he said to keep her on the Nexium and to not feed her anything but the elecare formula. We are to come back in a week. If at anytime she gets worse then we will admit her. She has shown some signs of improvement- last night she was still up but she was somewhat consolable. I asked him point blank what exactly was wrong with her and he said that she has esophagitis ( the inflammation and erosion of the esophagus), severe reflux and that allergies are playing into all of that. I would love a quick fix- but he said that she should out grow some of this. He said this next 6 mos. of her life she should improve as well as her pain tolerance should be getting higher.
The Lord is doing so much in my heart. Pray that I will believe God's promises. Thanks for your interest and concern
