keeping my day job

I guess my love and I both aren’t qualified doctors, even if one of us is in medical school – it doesn’t quite count.  We went to the pediatrician this morning, to see a real doctor, because Piglet threw up everything yesterday and this morning.  AND THE VERDICT IS…

Her Reflux is back, or actually never left.  Ug.  Aparently that may have been the source of all of her congestion/cough/runny nose stuff as well.  The acid caused mucus to build up and get into her throat/nose.  And it’s been getting progressively worse, which is why now she is throwing up everything she eats – it usually starts with coughing, then gagging, then up chuck she goes.

The doctor said that it could be an allergy, but we’ll try the Zantac for a week to see if it helps.  If not, we’ll go see an allergist.  I hope this is it.  That’s better than being allergic to milk.  And she’s been just miserable this week, so I really hope this is it.
