Good report from GI and Ped Drs

I only have a brief second but wanted to update. Sadie had her GI appt yesterday and not much came of it. The GI dr seems to think that the methadone/long-term use of narcotics is what is affecting the slow motility in her lower esophagus. She's not going to do anything further until Sadie is off the methadone for good. If we don't see signs of improvement once she's weaned again, then she suggested seeing a neurologist combined with a something-scopy (sorry, I forget the name) that is basically a camera down her esophagus. But I"m not going to worry about it for now. For the time being, she's on Pepcid to help with the reflux, and she says we should see some improvement in a few days.

Meanwhile, we're down to two doses a day on the methadone, so I've got a very cranky girl again.

Today was her 2 month check-up, and she's 10 lbs 5 ozs, putting her in the 50th percentile for weight. She's in the 25th percentile for length and head circumference.

That's the update. She's crying a lot tonight - probably from the 4 shots, so no more time to write.
