Ryan had his doctor’s appointment today. I told the doctor that he had reflux that was bothering him and that he was never happy anymore and she said “well, if you don’t want to try medication right away, there are some other…” And I cut her off and said “WE WANT THE MEDICINE. NOW. DO YOU HAVE ANY IN THE ROOM RIGHT THIS MINUTE?”
So she wrote a prescription for reflux medicine (Zantac, for those of you playing along at home) and Ryan, after one dose, is already a much happier boy. I ate dinner sitting down, with the use of both hands! Last night, I ate standing up at the kitchen counter, with him propped up against my shoulder in one arm while he screamed the whole time.
He’s sleeping right now! And he fell asleep all by himself (like he used to before this whole reflux thing began) when I put him down to go tell Elizabeth to go to sleep already.
In other news, he’s shooting up the growth charts, just like his big sister. I can’t remember when she hit the 99%, but he is on his way.
His head started giant and is leveling off. Kind of.
