Samuel Kenneth Finzer Update 58

Thanks to Rachael Ratliff, Jen Pond, and Jen McCracken for taking Leyla out this past Friday. Leyla really needed to get out of the house. Dublin Baptist Church and Broadway United Methodist; wow, thanks for all the cards. Encouragers class thanks for the flowers and the money for the PediaSure.

Samuel is having a lot of problems with his acid reflux. After talking with Jen Pond on Friday, we believe that Samuel either needs a higher dosage or a different acid reflux medicine. Both Jen Pond's girls had really bad acid reflux. Samuel has been given Zantac since being on the feeding tube two months ago. The acid reflux is so bad, Samuel isn't taking the bottle at all. Everything is going in the feeding tube. Leyla is meeting with the doctor on Thursday to talk about the acid reflux and all the stress she is going through. At least now we know why he has so much trouble taking the bottle.

Pray for Samuel's acid reflux and his BPD (bronchopulmonary dysplasia).

On a positive note, my sister had a healthy baby girl last night. They have two boys and were praying for a girl. God is so good.

Hey Guys, just wanted to let you know we are still thinking about you and praying for you and your family.
Ask the doctor about some other meds for acid reflux... Prevacid or Reglan are 2 other medications that may be worth a try.
Thanks for the updates!

Leyla- Hope the bottles are working out better for Samuel. I sent you a surprise in the mail- I hope you like it. If you haven't received it yet let me know because it should have arrived this week.
love you guys
