Doctor Update

We saw Oliver's GI a few weeks ago. He's very pleased with Oliver's weight gain. Jordan and I are amazed that Oliver is even gaining weight! He sure doesn't seem to be eating anything of any substance and his formula intake has dropped dramatically. But I guess until that is reflected in his weight, then he's okay.

We did switch up Oliver's PPI medicine. We went from 20 mg once a day to 10 mg twice a day. The hope is that by spreading it out, it will help him feel better throughout the day. Is it working? I think it might be helping with his late afternoon crankiness, but not his spit out vs. swallowing problem.

Next  up is the allergist next month in which we discuss re-doing allergy testing to see which food might be a good candidate for trying to re-introduce into his diet.


  1. Thank you for sharing your son's journey with EE. Our son was just diagnosed on March 24th at 13 months old. Our first visit with an allergist is this Wednesday, we are anxiously awaiting it, so we can get some results in and begin to offer him a food. He has been on an elemental diet since March 16th, and there is no explaining to a 13 month old as to why they all of a sudden can't have food. I'm sure you know all about that since your little one was diagnosed at the same age. It's comforting to know others have ventured this trail already, and they are hanging in there!
    Have a great day! Dana :o)

  2. Looking forward to hearing about the new foods you get to add to Oliver's diet! My son, L was diagnosed with EG at 15 months old and is now doing really great at age 5. Hang in there, it will get better!
