benjamin is home

Ben returned home from the hospital yesterday afternoon. He has been diagnosed with a virus, reflux, and infant sleep apnea. Blood tests confirmed the virus is not RSV, just a cold. He underwent an upper GI tract late Thurs. evening which showed his reflux, and he has been put on Zantac to control it. The doctors are blaming his infant sleep apnea on the reflux. Right now he is taking his med twice daily and is on an apnea monitor which keeps track of his heartbeat and respirations and alarms if they get out of whack. He's been on it since yesterday at about 10:00am, and it has not alarmed yet!!! Thank you everyone for all your prayers. We are so blessed to have our Benny Boo back at home.
