Happy Anniversary...and, they don't get to be "crazy"

So, Happy 6 year anniversary to my lovely. I love you with all of my heart, and I can't imagine life without you.

We were supposed to be "celebrating" our anniversary at a work reward trip in Ocean City, MD. What stopped us from doing so? Reflux. Stinkin' effin' reflux. It makes life miserable for all involved. I hate reflux!!!

Finnley is just too cranky / miserable/ uncomfortable to take on a trip. Even a "short trip" that isn't too far away. I / we went back and forth a million times on what was the right thing to do, and in the end...we are staying home. It sucks because Matt should be down in MD with his team tonight, but instead he is going down tomorrow just for an overnight. Reflux affects the whole family, and we ALL suffer in many different ways.

I cannot wait to get to that elusive place of "it will get better". If we don't get there in the next couple of months, you might find me living in the nuthouse. Or, we might all be in the nuthouse. Or at least you might find us packing our bags for that sure to come trip.

In the interim, Finnley has started on yet another different medication. The Zantac made her throw up. The Axid just doesn't seem to be helping, although she doesn't mind taking it at all. So, now on to Prevacid. The Prevacid is hard to administer to an infant because it has to "dissolve in the mouth" and cannot be crushed. So, we have to dissolve the half tablet in water or a huge syringe...and try to get all the granules to go into her mouth instead of just sticking to the inside of the syring. Not an easy feat, but we will do what we have to do. Let's hope it offers some relief in the coming week. If not? Not sure. Maybe a hypoallergenic formula? Maybe...oh...who freakin' knows.
