Well my new son, Calvin Frank Little was born Friday January 12th weighing in at a whopping 9lbs. 1oz. He started turning purple at his first breast feeding but quickly recovered his color. He did it again that evening and that landed him in ICU. After several days, they finally did a check on the esophagas and discovered severe acid reflux. Pretty common, easily treatable, and predicted to grow out of in a few months to a year.
Previous to this they were diagnosing him as having "apnea like symptoms"...whatever that means. Anyway, we pleaded not to have to take home the apnea monitor which we are told by friends drives everyone crazy because of the false alarms. To make a long story short ..... after 8 days and 6 different doctors we brought him home. After two weeks home he has had no oxygen de-saturations. Apparently he just would get heartburn and breath really shallow ... since breathing was a new thing for him.
Anyhow it took $30,000 for them to figure out that he had heartburn. We're just glad he's healthy and strong.
