To say last week was busy is an understatement!
First day back to work after a week long vacation. 300+ emails to catch up on, meetings and M’s ABA session at my mom’s house. Continue reading “Busy Week”
This past week seemed to go so slow, but fast at the same time.
M had her strabismus surgery … the 2 hour wait from when I left her in the Operating Room to when I saw her in recovery were the longest 2 hours going. But, let me start at the beginning.

So, I think I have figured out M’s constant vomiting.
We knew milk and soy – when we removed those the vomiting stopped. Then she had an allergic reaction to amoxicillin. Start up the vomiting again.
Seasonal allergies (runny nose, etc) kicked in – vomiting worse than ever. Put her in Claritin. Found out vomits worse with Claritin and apples. Suspected allergy.
Removed those and it stopped. Until yesterday when she got a mosquito bite. Swelled all up with a little hive around it (in her leg area) – when I gave her benedryl for the itching and swelling the vomiting stopped. After 5.5 hours here it comes again.
I literally think any allergic reaction she has is manifesting itself with vomiting.
Now I just need to convince allergy of this!
It’s going to be a long summer!!
Well … we went back to GI yesterday. M had to stop taking the reflux medication as it was causing her stomach cramps and making her miserable. BUT … I removed apple from her diet … and she’s almost stopped spitting up!
She still has ‘wet burps’ that she finds funny to hold in her mouth. I know … EWWW. But you try to convince a 3.5 year old to swallow when they don’t want to! This has now been an added statement during ABA … Swallow please.

I received a call today. Currently, M is transported to school on a special needs bus that has a chair lift and lifts her stroller into the bus (like a wheelchair) and that is her seat on the bus. Well, the bus coordinator would like to know if we can switch M to a seat (with a safety harness).
Wow … I did not see this coming.

Per Wikipedia …
Strabismus, also called crossed eyes, is a condition in which the eyes do not properly align with each other when looking at an object. Exotropia is a form of strabismus where the eyes are deviated outward.
The brain’s ability to see three-dimensional objects depends on proper alignment of the eyes. When both eyes are properly aligned and aimed at the same target, the visual portion of the brain fuses the forms into a single image. When one eye turns inward, outward, upward, or downward, two different pictures are sent to the brain. This causes loss of depth perception and binocular vision.
Strabismus occurs in about 2% of children.

Why do I tell you this? Well … because M has this of course!
We went to the neuro-ophthalmologist yesterday … I’ll tell you all about it, but first let me give you a little history.

Sigh – verb – To emit a long, deep, audible breath expressing sadness, relief, tiredness, or a similar feeling.
I didn’t realize how much I was hoping the reflux medication would help M. But, it doesn’t seem as though that was the answer.
We started the medication last Friday night (so 5 full days of the medication so far), but Continue reading “Sigh…”
