Medical Updates

Ramsey had his annual well visit this week. To my surprise, he had lost weight. We're hoping it's because he is so active now. I am discouraged that sometimes, it's obvious that he just doesn't want to eat. Other times, he eats like a champ. I had taken him off of his reflux medication, thinking he was past that. Now, I am wondering if that is part of the reason why he turns his head to certain foods. His pediatrician said not to worry about the weight loss; she wants to see him in a month to weigh him again. We are now giving him pediasure and things like buttered noodles and buttered bread to put on the pounds.

He began coughing this week, and two nights ago, he woke up with a fever. As the day progressed, the fever became worse so we took him to Children's just to play it safe. (Why do kids always get sick on the weekend!?) They checked his oxygen and it was good. Next, they did an X-Ray which was clear. We can treat this as a standard virus and hopefully he will be better soon! He just woke now and his fever was back up to 103. It's so unnerving to hold him and to hear how hard he is breathing.

Hope our little guy feels better soon!


  1. Praying for Ramsey, and also for you. He is in God's hands. He will take care of him. Love you all.

  2. Aw Lisa. It is hard to hear our little ones breathing hard and, even if you know it's typical of kids with fever, there must be just a little extra worry to hear that in Ramsey. Hoping that your superdude is feeling well again soon.
    p.s. We add a bit of flax oil to Samuel's food, just a dribble, to help add calories and it's great for omega-3s also. And buttered noodles are a staple here also... :)

  3. Lisa, we hope Ramsey is feeling better real soon.He is a champ and will be back to being on the move before you know it.Sending love and prayers for all of you.Get well soon Ramsey! we love you!
