Things Owen does not like at 4 months old:
We're excited that Owen has reached the 4 month mark. His nickname is officially, "The Happy Spewer" because the Axid medication has really helped his comfort level amid the vomiting. However, he's showing increased respiratory distress (coughing, gagging, straining to clear his airway - yikes!) so we've switched him to a stronger medicine. It's been a rough couple days while we wait for the new meds to take effect. Owen is pretty unhappy and I was so soggy by noon yesterday that I decided NOT to change clothes - might as well catch all the vomit on one set of clothes each day instead of adding another pair of pants to the hamper...gross.
Sooo... After today's visit with the doctor (we were there yesterday, too), we decided to stick with the Prevacid a few more days, add Reglan to try and move the food out of his belly faster and re-evaluate next week. Let's hope we can get this under control. The vomiting is messy, but manageable. The gagging and choking is downright scary.
Good news, at 11 lb, 12 oz, Owen is charging along in the 3-5 percentile. At least he's still gaining weight and SLEEPING LIKE A CHAMP thanks to Scott's new swaddling technique.
