Helpless

Last week the deep south experienced a crazy phenomenon...snow! Little man wasn't impressed.

Literally two hours after posting this video little man vomited everything I  had fed him.

After rejoicing and thinking we were finally over all the repercussions of the stomach virus (that he had January 19th) I felt like we were back at square one.


Defeated.

He had been on his new medicine that was suppose to "fix" everything but obviously something else is wrong. It's more than stomach irritation.

Confused.


We were sent to the GI specialist at Cook Children's. She said that it sounds like the virus shrunk the opening from the esophagus to stomach *(correction: stomach to the intestine). On Thursday they are going to put little man under, go into his stomach with a camera and take pictures. Once they confirm that is what is going on they will take a balloon and expand it. That should widen the opening and permanently fix the issue.

Helpless.


I wish that little man didn't have to go through this procedure to fix his issue. But at this point it's the only thing that will help him keep solids down. It has been so hard watching my baby suffer. Although I feel all these different emotions. I also feel..

Hopeful.


I trust that no matter what happens God is in control. He is the ultimate healer and I believe little man will be healed!!


Please be praying for complete healing for him and that he will be able to keep down solids!

Blog hop will still happen on Thursday the post has already been scheduled.

    Kael my son had the similar issue after he got over a stomach bug he had a problem with his small intestine and they put a balloon in and enlarged a portion of it. We haven't had a problem since the procedure was done about a month ago. I hope all goes well for the little man!

  13. Oh... that little face just tugs at my heart!! Precious little man.

    Hope all is better soon...

    Have you ever had probiotics? I would google them. (its a vitamin/supplement, not a drug) But it replenishes good bacteria in our gut and helps fight of bacteria and infection in our GI tract. I have had my kids on them ever since Grandma introduced them to sugar! ;) (so yes, safe for a baby)

    Blessings-

  15. Goodness. So sorry to hear that he's not over this yet. It's so sad b/c wee ones can't communicate well what's happening to them. It breaks your heart to see them suffering so. I am praying for wisdom and guidance for the doctors, a speedy and complete recovery for Little Man, and peace for you and your husband.
