Please stop the vomiting

The vomiting is not getting any better despite our best efforts with medicines and changing around his food.

Last night was the worst we had seen in a while. Brayden vomited a few times during the day but then around dinner time he would not stop. Between 6:00 and 11:00 he vomited at least 10 times. There is nothing there to vomit so it was mostly a horrible retching, over and over. It was a back and forth decision about whether or not to take him to the ER. I never really feel like the ER knows what to do (unless we go to the one at Childrens, an hour away) and what they have done in the past, I can do at home.

I sat in the chair with him until a little after midnight, Jeremy brought the pac-n-play to our room and Brayden slept the remainder of the night in it. He had a few seizures in the middle of the night and couple more vomit spells so needless to say it was a rough night (Brayden has not slept in our room for an entire night since he was a newborn, so you know we were freaked out).












I talked with the GI specialist this morning and we are going in tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. to see him. I am not completely confident with the path that this GI doctor seems to be heading, not sure if the procedure he may be suggesting is really an answer, just not sure...I have been praying about it constantly today between all of my other thoughts and running around. We will see what the doctor says tomorrow.

Please pray for him, for the doctor, for the next steps. The not knowing what to do or how to make him better, is overwhelming.

Heavenly Father, please be with Brayden. Please give the doctors wisdom to know what to do and how to proceed to help him out. Be with Carrie and Jeremy as they make decisions and just want Brayden to feel better. Give them wisdom, wrap Your arms around them and cover them with Your love. Be their Rock. Be with the big boys Lord. Bless this family in ways they would never expect. It's in Jesus' name that we always pray, Amen.

I am praying for you all this morning. I know you are meeting with the GI doctor right now. I am hoping for answers and a clear direction with positive results.

we are praying for you, thinking of you and hoping all this gets better for you and your little guy very soon. Brayden is very, very lucky to have a mommy and daddy like you and Jeremy.
