Ouch! Poor baby and poor you! Are you sure it's gas? Could it be teething pain that the hylands isn't covering, or ear pain from an infection? I remember Torin was crying and fussy at night and we thought it was gas... but at his well baby visit the next week they found that he had a pretty big ear infection! We took a wait and see approach (so no abx) but we did start giving him iburofen and night. It sounds like you're doing everything possible for gas pain... and if it's not helping, maybe look at the teeth or ears angle? Hang in there!
My dr visit- went pretty well I think! I have a follow up appointment for Jan 13th. Till then I have a 10 day course of abx followed by three weeks of diflucan (which may turn into a longer course, it depends on symptoms). Torin has more nystatin and bactorban. First week of Jan I have a full metabolic workup scheduled, looking at general blood stuff, thyroid, hormones, iron, clotting, etc. We'll go over the results and options at the visit on the 13th. We'll discuss treatment for depression at that meeting too, based on what the thyroid looks like. And we'll discuss what, if anything, needs to be done about the thrush/mrsa at that point (fingers crossed the anx and diflucan work with the "triple nipple" and grapefruit seed extract to knock this thing out!). It cost more than I'd hoped but less than it could have... the dr wiggled things around so that she could bill a lower amount overall. I lurve them!
winter car- we're negotiating some snow tires. We do have chains but they 1- don't seem to help and 2- we have to take them on and off every time we drive since you can't go faster than 30mph with them on and we really only need them for our home road.... everything else is snow free and faster than 30mph!
dd1's school- it's not "technically" a school... it's a private in-home daycare for children ages 2-8. The woman who runs it/lives there is a certified teacher in the waldorf tradition and she basically runs the daycare as a small waldorf inspired school. She helps parents with the homeschooling paperwork and provides lesson plans to families who want that, but it's not an "official" school... it's an "official" in home daycare. But DH and I are brainstorming... it's gonna be a VERY brainstormy weekend! LOL
