i've been MIA lately because we had a scare with my baby boy and i haven't been able to take my eyes off of him since Tuesday. Finn is 4 months old and has severe reflux issues. it's so bad that he was spitting up 40-50 times a day and the only thing the pediatrician would give him was zantac to keep him more comfortable. well, on Tuesday i was on the phone with my brother and he asked me to read an e-mail he had forwarded to me. well, my 3 year old started causing a ruckous and when i looked over at her, she was under the jumperoo that Finn was in. i looked up at Finn and he was white as a sheet , red all around his eyes, eyes were rolling back into his head and he wasn't breathing. i tried CPR (even though i was in such a panic that i don't even think i did it right) and nothing happened. then i grabbed our bulb syringe and shoved it in his mouth and ended up sucking out a HUGE amount of mucus and drool. he started coughing and then crying. as you can imagine, this was probably the scariest thing i have ever had to deal with. but i'm so glad that he's still here with me and that God has continued to bless me with my son's life.
*Finn is doing great now and the pediatrician put him on prevacid to keep the reflux more under control. it has worked wonders so far!
