Is Reflux back to haunt us......

When Ella was a baby she had reflux... I like to refer to reflux as being of the devil... lol. Its awful and if your a momma that has experienced with you child you know what I'm talking about.  Well for a little over a Month now, I along with Daniel and a lot of our family have realized that something was off with Ella.  She has been VERY fussy and ill.  I'm sure I have taken her to the doctor 4 times in the last month thinking that she must have another ear infection because of how awful she was acting and sleeping. All those times the doctor would say that her ears look fine! This last week Ella starting having a little spit up and her breath would smell sour. Shes also has the worst diarrhea I've ever seen... its been non stop for the last month. Feeling pretty desperate ,Daniel and I took her back to the doctor this morning. This time I needed some answers as to why Ella felt so bad. I even wrote all her issues out on a sheet of paper about a page long.. lol Anyways the doctor thinks that Ella might have REFLUX again.   So were putting Ella back on the same medicine she was on as a baby , and I'm sending up BIG prayers that this is going to be the fix she feeds to feel well again. If not the doctor wants to do further tests to see if Ella is maybe lactose intolerant and so on. So it you don't mind keep the little gal in your prayers. I want my little girl to feel like herself again, weve had enough sickness. :)

Hand Foot and.... that's just werid!

There is one thing I've come to realize is that this is the year of sickness for the Weathers. We started off the year with strep..then stomach virus...Roseola, about twelve ear infections, and now Hand Foot and Mouth disease. First let me say they totally need to "Rename this disease". It's not a disease at all... its a virus. A virus that causes sores and blisters on the hands feet and mouth. So officially I'm renaming it Hand Foot and Mouth VIRUS! LOL.  It's been challenging too say the least. I have had to pray for patience more than anything this year. It's been very difficult. Were making it threw though.... as I always try to remind myself it could ALWAYS be worse. 

Were finally officially into fall. We took Ella to a local Pumpkin patch the other day to pick out pumpkins. The whole time all I could think about was how little she was this time last year. I always love to go back and compare pictures of her a year later.  Now were gearing up for a trip to see Daniel's brother and his wife and their two little girls. Can't Wait! We have been needing to get out of Georgia for awhile now!!!
