This is the song that doesn't end

This is the song that doesn’t end
Yes it goes on and on my friend
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
And they’ll continue singing it forever just because
This is the song that doesn't end...
by Lambchop (click to experience the song)

I was just singing this song with Carter and Luke last night. I have no idea why I ever taught it to them. The song gets stuck in your head and yes it goes on and on.

Well this week I felt like Brayden was singing the same song, just his own version...with the vomiting. I thought that song had ended but not the case.

I talked with his GI specialist this afternoon. He wants us to try Prevacid with his other medications to see if it could make any difference. Also to decrease the calories in the formula for his J-tube. If this sounds familiar, you are right; we have tried this many times before and it barely took the edge off the vomiting. The doctor did not sound too optimistic about trying these but wants to try it before discussing other options. We are to give it a try through the weekend and check back in with him.

This song has to come to an end. It cannot go on and on my friend.

I am sorry, Carrie. I wish that you were given a new option and I am sad you have to try to make it through the weekend using a "been there done that (doesn't work) option. Many prayers are being said for you guys.

Ugh, sounds like Brayden needs a new song to sing. Sorry to hear of all his troubles with vomiting. I can only imagine how frustrating that is for you both. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs.

Just merely reading the "this is the song that never ends" words on the page has it stuck in my inner voice and repeating itself. I know that song well and watched it enough times. And now, thanks to you and the wonderful way you have with words...I am catching myself singing the tune outloud. ;)

I want to thank you for taking the time to sign my ACC-Angels Around the World guestbook. I sent you an e-mail but not sure if you received it.

I am enjoying reading your posts. You really have a beautiful website and little boy too. My prayers are with you, Brayden and your family.
