Izabel Update.

This month has been busy. Either Izabel has a doctor appointment somewhere or I have a densit appointment. It seem like my husband dosn't get a day off. I realy do need to learn to drive. IT not the driving that scares me so much as the idiots on the road. Just the other day on the way to work m husband watch a drunk driver kill a baby in the passanger back set when he a monther and child car. My relfex arent so good and I don't want to take any chances. So I just never tried to get my drivers liscense. I probley should cause one day my husband not going to be around sad to think about.

Anyway we got Izabel test back. She does have GERD

Gastro-Esophageal Reflux (GER) causes severe heartburn pain when milk and stomach acid flow backwards up into the esophagus. Normally, gravity keeps breast milk or formula in the stomach, but when a baby lies flat, the stomach contents are allowed to “reflux” back into the esophagus. During sleep, this acid irritation will cause frequent night waking, pain, excessive spitting up, and restless sleep patterns

The did the Upper GI and found she has several epposide of reflux. Now she on medication Prevacid solutabs. She takes half a pill in the morning and half a pill in the afternoon. I Cant tell if it upseting her stomach or if the pain she is having now is from one of her teeth startign to come in. The bottom left is about to pop is so should could be hurting her.

The MRI Came back clean other then they noticed that her head is Misshapen and might need to wear a helmet. I noticed it when Travis ask med this. Does her head look flat in the back? It is caused when your bbay sleep on it back. They tell you not to put a baby on it stomach cause it can cause SIDSm, but there are other side effects to that. Here are some the warrning sings.

the back of the head is flattened on the same side that the forehead is more prominent
the ear on the side of the occipital flattening (at the back of head) can be larger and advanced forward, compared to the other ear
the jaw can be asymmetric, with an upward slant on the same side as the shortened muscle
facial asymmetry, with one cheek appearing more full and one side of the forehead appearing more prominent than on the other side

Some times they say a baby can get torticollis. Torticollis is when a baby can't move its head from side to side, But Izabel can move her neck.

They say that if significant head asymmetry is present at six months, helmet therapy is necessary to correct the head shape.

"The correction of head asymmetry with helmet therapy is based on head growth -- the normal rate of growth slows at around one year of age, so we have a window of opportunity when the baby is between six months and one year old,"

With All the problems that Izabel is going though makes me wonder am I a good mother. Did I do somethign while I was carrying her that caused her to be bron early and have all these probelms.

Thank god for Insurance and Medicade. WIthout it we be in trouble.

June 5 2008

Well, we had to get Izabel a new doctor today. I never really like the old doctor anyway. He never seem to know what he was doing anyway. He always said let me ask the other doctor. Plus he said he was switching jobs in this area. He seemed like he was just a general all around doctor and didn't know much about kids. So today was Izabel first time with her new doctor. I thought thinks were going so well. We got there at 9:30 for her 9:45 appointment. Did the paper work. at 10:00 they called us back and they did her weight and height. She is 11 pounds now 23 inches long with a 3 1/2 foot. Then they take us to another room as say the doctor will be right with you. An hour late the doctor finally comes in the room. I guess one her other patients deiced at the last meet to bring in a 9-20 page pack of information that she need filled out right then and there. She like I am getting on plane at 4pm to go to Washington Dc. Can you fill out the paper work now. Normally people give you weeks to fill it out and send it to your new doctor. Nope this lady was kinda rude. She now made the doctor make all her patients wait. It was kind upsetting. Made me want to leave having to wait so long. Izabel was getting tired and hungry. She did eat at 8:30 am, but by 11 she was getting hungry. The doctor did apologize but when a baby is hungry and tried what do they do. She screamed her head off. I mean she screamed so loud it made your ear drums hurt.

We did find out things that we didn't know before. One the doctor doesn't think she need physical therapy for her head. Oh did I tell you about her head yet? I can't remember so if I didn't I will tell ya again. Izabel likes to sleep on her left side her head. She can turn her neck from side to side but doesn't like to when sleeping. So her head is forming more towards one side. Where trying to get her to sleep on the other side and now and then she will. The new doctor wants to do a MRI to make sure everything is forming OK in there and that with time her head will forum OK. We don't want to do physical trophy on her head if we don't have to. Plus the old doctor said she had a condition where she couldn't move her head from side to side. She moved her head all the time so i know he was wrong. I never liked him but he was one the few doctors that would take medicare and until are insurance came in it what we had to go with.

Now the new Doctor also wants to schedule a Upper GI. She thinks Izabel might be not be sucking her bottle properly and swallowing her milk and spiting it back up in her mouth. Which can cause problems in her esophagus. She also gave us new formula to try cause Izabel get real gassy at night and doesn't sleep though the night yet and she almost 5 months old. New formula is for gassy and Fussy babies.

Did I also mention that Izabel has two top and two bottom teeth right under the gum line waiting to come in. So on top of everything else she could be teething soon.

I hope that this all works and that Izabel gets better and becomes a healthy and happy baby.
