    I apologize for the delay in replying to you. As I replied to Sara, I just needed a break from the HCM issue. After my mother passed I lost a great aunt and my father's mother. Since then, I have had news that another great aunt is terminally ill and my husbands father is terminally ill. Though they give my husband's father up to 20 years with the radiation treatment, we aren't really sure what "up to" will really entail.
    We did have my 3 year old retested for the reflux, upper GI, and he does have it again. He is back on meds. At least it is just Prevacid once a day this time instead of three different meds, three times a day.
    My daughter's tongue is progressing like it has before. We will be revisiting the specialist in Little Rock, Arkansas in a couple of years for another surgery to control the size. I keep praying for a miracle for her. My older son has his asthma under control again. I was hoping he would grow out of it by now. We switched him from soccer to Tae Kwon Do and he is doing wonderfully.
    If you will tell me when you are back in the office again, I promise to check back and I will call.
    Thank you!
    God Bless,
    Tracey Shuck
