She's OK

Well, no "episodes" since yesterday morning. This is a huge relief, telling me that the doc was right.(hopefully) Basically it all stems from a couple of weeks ago when we all had food poisoning(dang Burger King) and were throwing up. Summer's was pretty bad. Apparently it left lesions in her esophagus and are in turn causing acid reflux. He offered to do more testing but concidering the history, he was certain thats what the problem was. Put her on Zantac for a week or 2 and it should go away. BTW-liquid Zantac must be the most horrible tasting substance known to man. And because it was so expensive(over $60, with insurance!) we warned her that she HAS to take it. She is being such a trooper about it. I let her chase it with apple juice and a little treat. It is so nasty. Also I think she is just so amazed that shes not feeling like garbage anymore.
Sorry to be such a Drama Queen over this whole thing. We don't see a lot of medical issues in this house. For sure this year was the worst yet for colds and tummy bugs. Even Strep throat went through the house. We have been very fortunate over the years. No ear infections (Except Summer had 1 last year)we don't even get runny noses very often. I think thats why when something does go wrong, I go into freak-out mode. I need to work on that.
Thanks for the comments and phone calls. It feels good to know I have people to turn to for support.

I am so glad that you found out what the cause is. What a relief. I dont think you overreacted at all, when something is wrong with our kids us mothers just go into protection mode. It is a terrible feeling to think something could be wrong with our babies. I'm thinking of you guys.

It's not overreacting it's called being a Mom. I am so happy that was all it was and she is feeling better. It has been a bad season for sickness. I can't wait for spring!!! Take care...
