More meds for Holly

Holly has silent reflux. We know that.

To help with what is essentially infant heartburn, she has now been prescribed Infant Gaviscon. Sue and I are  over the moon that we have to administer yet another medication.

Like her Topiramate, it's not just a case of open, measure out and administer. It's all sorts of fiddly - first having to make a paste, then adding water, then watching Holly dribble it out as it tastes revolting. Then having to add flavour (i.e. jarred fruit) to mask the taste.

Hopefully this additional medication will help Holly feel relief from whatever pain the reflux is causing her.
