Brayden is still vomiting.
It is not abnormal for him to vomit a dozen times a day.
Since his food goes into his intestine, the only thing he vomits is stomach juices. And this morning had a dash of blood in it. He wretches the worst kind of wretch every time.
We are going on one year of this and no real answers.
It feels abnormal to really question or second guess doctors. They are the experts, they have gone to school...they have tried many things for Brayden but no change. When is it time to look for a second opinion?
It is time.
This Friday we will seeing another GI specialist. There are not many around that handle children with G-J tubes. I have no idea what to expect from this doctor visit. I am typing out Brayden's medical history in regards to the G-I issues, especially since we have been to different places for tests. It is a lot when all of it is put together. Lots of scopes, tests,...the list is long.
Even if this doctor says we have covered our bases, then we will know that we have covered our bases. Or he could have fresh perspective and offer a bit of insight.
Something has to happen. Brayden cannot live with this. He cannot.
Please pray for the vomiting problems. We feel at our wits end. Pray for the doctors to have some wisdom and direction for Brayden.
