Declan went to the gi today. He has fpies and now that we have that controlled his reflux has beem awful. The reflux meds have stopped working. Becau se of his history the gi gave us 2 options. The first is to proceed with an upper gi endoscope and send it ft or biopsy. That will tell us how bwd his reflux is snd test for other gi issues. The other option was to pump for 3 days and only feed him neocate provided by the dr to see if hes still reacting despite an elimination diet. If that di esnt help he would then be scoped. We chose to schedule the scope and not do neocate at all. His symptoms now all lead to reflux and we want to get answers and not waste any more time. His gi told us he would rather scope him beca use even with his fpi es breast is best for him.

Im hoping so too. Hes had a pretty good day today. Hes nursed all day and no bottles so hes spit up very little. His weight is still below what it was 3 weeks ago though

Good.. I bet as he gets older he will grow out of it? Is that what usually happens?
