So. Since Maggie had throw up the priolsec 3 nights in a row, and I was SO sure that she didn't have reflux.... I decided to stop the medicine. The doc had recommended we try that anyway, as you don't want her on meds for no reason. Well, after day four of no medicine, she was frantic. I was still kind of in denial, but my girlfriend from down the street came over one morning, and was helping me get Hulk ready for school. Her daughter had AWFUL reflux,so she had done a lot of research and lived through it. She volunteered to change Maggie while I was feeding Hulk breakfast, and I guess all the things that I had thought were just normal 'after feeding' behavior for Maggie (spit up, hiccups, this little convulsing thing) are signs of reflux.
So - got her back on the meds as of Sunday night, and she is back to doing well. My girlfriend also explained that the priolosec is a 24 hour medicine. Because I have to give it to her in a certain window (2 hours after feeding but at least 45 minutes before the next) if I give it to her at 5 PM one day, there is a chance that I would give it to her at 6 PM the next day. And since it is a slow acting medicine, she'll not have it for that next feeding, and that is why some nights she would be freaking out right before bedtime. Which is awful. Awful, awful, awful. We are trying to wind down from the day, and it's really the only feeding that Aaron has with her... and she is FREAKING out. So - not that I understand more how the medicine works, I changed to giving it to her in the morning, and it's much better. She still does a bit of crying at night, but I think that is more her fussy time than anything else.
She got her 2 month shots today - here hoping we don't have a big impact from them! OK - the princess is calling for her bottle....
