Prevacid the Miracle Drug

Since my last entry, we have started giving Prevacid before dinner every night. It has worked wonders! No more night screaming at all! He must've been in some pretty serious pain. I am so thankful to have my Jacky back, I am also so thankful that I do not have a newborn at this time. I can't handle the constant waking to screams in the night. :]

So the other night we went to the county fair and grandma got Jack a big bag of cotton candy. He can actually have it. Surprisingly the ingredients were almost purely sugar. I know that is not really surprising at all! So Jack now has a new favorite, COTTON CANDY!

Screams in the Night

Lately we have had nightly screaming episodes again. It seems that something is bothering Jack. He is totally tense and screaming, his eyes are spacey and he is really aggressive. I have not a clue what could be causing this sudden change in behavior/sleep. Poor guy. He may be hungry, he may be having a hard time internally, maybe it's acid reflux again, nightmares, who knows!?

We need to figure something out soon. I have been in denial and we have been putting Jack's FPIES on the back-burner. He needs to get patch testing, we need to figure out why he still weighs 32lbs and we need to ask someone why he is screaming thru the night like a gassy newborn.

Maybe he has grown out of FPIES. Maybe he is having acid reflux that we need to treat. Maybe not either of these.

I will get on the phone tomorrow. It just may do him some good.
