On Friday, Isaiah took a turn for the worse, starting again with vomiting and diarrhea. By Saturday, he couldn't keep anything down, and his urine output dropped significantly. Sooooooooooooooooo, back to the hospital we went (after just being discharged from GVH on Wed). Only, this time he is at CHOP. Chris took him down late Sat. night and he was finally admitted to a bed at 6am Sunday morning. So far with the tests they have done, the doctors see possible blockages in his stomach/intestines. They Drs. are planning to do a barium swallow study and and upper endoscopy (a camera down his throat to see what's going on). He is on IV fluids and is not able to eat. The Drs. do realize how malnourished he is. Both Chris and I believe that something other than reflux and sickness is going on. Isaiah has been having periodic vomiting for the past 3 months, and they don't know why. Pray that the doctors get to the bottom of Isaiah's issues. Before Isaiah comes home, he will receive a feeding tube. We will be staying at the Ronald McDonald House and Josiah will be with his cousin Danny. Please pray for all of us.
