Hi Ya'll, this is Jessica's friend, Myssie (Mom to William, 2.5 years, RTS). Jessica called me this morning and wanted me to post about what has been going on. Alex has been very grumpy the last few days and he vomited yesterday. This morning he woke up and had thrown up bile during the night. Jessica seems to think that he is in pain so she has taken him to the doctor. I haven't heard anything from her this afternoon. Please keep them in your thoughts today and pray for answers to Alex's pain. As soon as I hear something I will update.
UPDATE: Alex and I are home. The doctor thinks Alex's tummy is fine, and we don't need to do an upper GI. She does think he has a sinus infection which I guess can cause nausea, and vomiting. I didn't know this. Alex has been a little, and I mean a little snotty. I didn't even break out the suction machine with this because it was such a little amount of snot. Alex was unusually grumpy these past few days, sometimes holding him wouldn't even work, and that has never happened. So I knew there was pain, then with the bile this morning I was scared we had a block or twist in his intestine. Because he had malrotated intestines at birth we have to be extra careful when unusual vomit occurs. The doctor seemed confidant that his tummy was fine. I hope she is right. I watch mystery diagnosis too much.
If his vomiting keeps up then we will see his GI doctors in St.Louis either Thursday or Friday.
