cerebal palsy

My son is born with Cerebal Palsy. He is now 2yrs and just started walking. He has too many on going problems. He has a Gastrotomy button in the stomache. Since Nov07. Before that he had NGTUBE. Was in hospital for Virus. Just found out his Bladder is expending.
Don't know what to do sometimes. He is my 4th child. My 3 girls are fine.
Pls help.

Dealing with GERD alone is a challenge.  I cannot imagine it coupled with Cerebal Palsy as you describe.  I assume it is the weak muscles causing the reflux to continue.  Have you tried different ideas such as weighting down liquids and/or various food combos to help with the distress of the reflux?

What does your Dr suggest?  Are you seeing a Pedi GI?
