Poor little guy

Every kid is different, right? I figured that Landon just wasn't the easiest baby, since we had already had the easiest baby. Then all of a sudden last Friday evening he spit up blood... yes, blood. Of course, I was worried. I called the doctor and long story short, he said that Landon may need to be started on some Zantac. Acid reflux. The doctor also suggested starting to mix some cereal with his milk (at only a month old!). Monday we went in and got the prescription, but it can take a couple of weeks to be in "full effect." Yesterday and today have been his best yet... coincidence, maybe, but I'll take it.

Please keep him in your prayers. If he doesn't seem to get better, they may need to do an upper GI (make him drink this terribly tasting stuff - barium, sedate and strap him to a table while they stick a scope down his tiny little throat).

How scary - we will definitely keep him in our prayers. We have had so many friends with children who have acid reflux...what is going on? Take care!

Hi Leticia,

My husband Matt used to work with Rob at Grand...I think we met once at Logan's when we were with Ross and Kara Poll. Anyway, I stumbled on your blog (long story) and it sounds like we have quite a bit in common. We have a 2 1/2 year old boy and a six month old girl. Dylan was a very easy baby and Ella has been a more difficult baby--reflux here too! She also was colicky so it took me a while to figure out the reflux thing and then I felt terrible. She is on Prevacid now and six months old and the happiest little girl. So I just wanted to tell you that it will all get better and little Landon will start to feel better. Anyway, tell Rob that Matt says hello. Take care!

So sorry to hear that he's not feeling so well. How's he doing now that he's on the meds? We will be praying for you guys!

Our daughter vomited blood when she was 17 months old. She was later diagnosed with a bleeding disorder called Von Willebrand. I would have your son tested for this fairly common condition (1% of the population). Free testing is offered in most states if you ask a hematologist about your state's program. It is easily treatable.
God Bless. Susan Sharp

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
