Hello everyone. My name is Katie. My son, Ian, is a former 29-weeker born premature due to severe maternal HELLP syndrome. He has had quite the adventurous journey. Through Ianer Beaner's highs and lows, we have learned more about prematurity, digestion, and food than we ever thought possible. My husband Tom, Ian, and I, live in Northern Virginia, just west of DC. I am a dental hygienist and work part time. Working in the healthcare field helped me understand Ian’s struggles much easier. I believe in making medical resources more available and easier to understand. This blog is both our story, and a gathering of resources. Please feel free to email me anytime with thoughts or questions. I love sharing our story ~~
I came across this video again today. I still feel it is important enough to share. Any parent of a child who suffers from retching, for any reason, should see. Ian was retching from a combination of reflux, vagus nerve damage, feeding intolerance, dumping syndrome, excessive mucus production from vagus nerve damage, and visceral hyperalgesia. I know there are so many reason rolled into one..... but I wanted all the mommy;s to know that if your child is doing "this," it could very likely be attributed to one of these causes. It helps to know you are not alone!
Ian continues to retch, but with much less frequency and pressure.
This BLOG has lots of retching resources, research, and experiences.
