Reflux

Frustration was in the air today. Most everyone I talked to today was tired, burnt out, and frustrated.  Myself included.

Makenzie woke up this morning in a great mood. I began to mix up her formula and she puked. Nothing in her stomach, no reason, just happened. This was only the beginning.

Her first feed went well and she had little reflux. The second and third feeding did not go nearly as well. It was not an issue of keeping her food down as much as little tiny bits coming up all afternoon. There is no rhyme nor reason.

So I spent the day trying to figure it out. Was it what was in the formula? Was it because it was so stinking hot? Was it because Makenzie needed to have a bowl movement? Was it because I did not flush water after breakfast? What the HECK was going on?

I am tired of this issue. I have gone over and over in my head why Makenzie will go weeks without issue and then have such a bad day.

The thing is her diet is the best it has been in 3 years right now. She is growing better then ever, but there is still the nagging reflux that just wants to haunt her.

I spent a good amount of time today yelling at God,  pleading with God, and just sitting in his presence trying to find the peace.

Bedtime could not come soon enough tonight. I was done..... Makenzie was not.... ahhhhhhhh. I laid her down and 3 hours later she was still up egging me on to play with her. Happy as a lark. Tonight though as cute as she was and as much as I love her I just wanted her to close her pretty blue eyes and drift off to dream land. Finally about 10:30pm she conceded.

It was a long frustrating day. Please pray tomorrow is better. Please pray for Makenzie's reflux to disappear. Please pray for this part of her life to get easier..... for both of us! I trust it will happen and am waiting.... patiently.

Believe... Prayer Works
