My little boy, 11 yrs old has been, all summer having tummy upset. So far his Pediatrician, and now his Gastroenterologist think it is GERD. His Dad has it so it's leading to that.
This AM @ 6:30, he has an Endoscopy scheduled. He'll be asleep during the 15 min. procedure, but is afraid of the IV and the whole scenario. I will skip work to go with him & my husband. Luckily, my chemo/ Decadron was yesterday & Wed is my energy day.
My (medium sized bear) is already on an antacid & we notice that his tummy upset is worse when he is stressed over major events such as a long flying trip or changes in school. He just changed to Middle school.
I'm thinking children probiotics might help. He/we are already careful with omitting acidic/fatty/sugary foods, and anything that bothers him. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Prayers please for good results & peace/strength for him.
PS. My little guy (nephew) has only one last surgery to go, where they will close the iliostomy & he will be able to go to the bathroom like the rest of us. His last surgery was hours long, bless his heart. And he"s taken it with so much courage. Prayers for him too please.
Thank you so much,
