It's back - the vomiting

Anyone watch those old scary Poltergeist movies? And the little girl, "They're baaack!"

Well we have our own little scare...It's baaack!

The vomiting.

It is back with a vengeance. Shortly before spring break Brayden was sick, everyone else in the house got sick. Everyone got better, including Brayden. However, his vomiting did not go away. Over the past week it has gotten progressively worse. Several times he has vomited blood, the brown old blood. Yesterday and this morning was the worst. He vomited a lot of stomach bile and blood. It burns his skin to the point of bleeding. He looks terrible (even though he is so adorable). The sides of his ears and the back of his head are raw from laying in it in his crib, even just for a moment. The corners of his mouth are red and bleeding. It has to hurt but he doesn't cry about it much.

I really thought the vomiting was a thing of the past. We are waiting to see what the doctors say. I am not sure what options are out there at this point. The last round of this we tried so many things. Ugh.

Oh Carrie...I am so so so so sorry-I can't imagine how discouraging that must be. I'm getting on my knees to pray for him right now. Keep us posted.

I am so sorry, Carrie. How frustrating to be back in this phase. If there is anything at all that I can do, please let me know. I hope the doctors can come up with a viable solution quickly!!
