Sarah: I can’t remember if you said Quinn has allergies or just food aversions. I was told that if a child has any allergies, their immune system kicks in to *get rid* of that food. It acts like the food is a bug. Then, when the child really is sick, it is hard for the immune system to get rid of it because it has been working so hard to deal with the food. Our spec told us that is part of Carson’s problem and why he is sick all the time. I don’t even work outside of the home anymore – just to keep him healthier and from as sick as he is, you would think he is at a daycare every day.
I hope you learn bunches from the ph probe. We had one done with Talon and it was so interesting to know that certain activities affected him more (bending over to get a ball, lying down, lying on a pillow watching tv). Talon was 3 and while we were in the hospital I wrote down what he was doing at all times and then our spec was able to compare that to the probe findings. I have faith that will show you a bigger picture. Let me know when you know!
Keep your chin up! We did have a good night last night- guess God gave me a break last night!February 28, 2007 at 3:50 am #26043AnonymousInactive
Hey, i haven’t tried chiro or anything like that. Do you think that would help her not to be sick so often?
I’m really checking into a food allergy for Quinn. I think this may be a cause for her sickies. She just got another horrible diaper rash and she’s starting to come down with something once again. I think she may be allergic to something in the kix cereal. I know we had to stop her cheerios because those seemed to be really uncomfortable for her. But she likes to eat the kix. She doesn’t eat them when she is sick… but now that she’s been on the mend, she started to eat her kix again. And we are getting sick and a diaper rash so, I’m eliminating the kix for a whole week and then if her symptoms go away, I will start them back up again for a week to see what happens. Then I will know that there is an ingredient in those kix and the cheerios and probably other things too that cause problems for her.
Quinn’s PH probe testing came back today. The nurse called me and left a message, so I was unable to speak to her, but the message stated that Quinn still had reflux and that the doctor wanted to prescribe her some meds. I need to talk to them about it. She’s already on meds. She told me to call her if I wanted to discuss the details with her and believe me I do. So hopefully tomorrow I will get some more answers. It seems that Q might just deal with the reflux for much longer than I anticipated and hoped for.
Thanks everyone for your continued support and thoughts. It means a whole lot!
