so it was looking as though we would be coming home tomorrow....but the vomiting has reared its ugly head again so it will be longer. i am bummed but do not want to come home until he is ready and am glad they are taking this thing seriously this time and not just dismissing it as a virus or something like they have in the past. one theory that is being tossed around is cyclic vomiting syndrome, the symptoms sound similar to what has been happening, although kids do not usually develop it until around age three, but even though its not common for a kid as young as milo to develop it, it is not unheard of. i don't know. we will see.

here are some pictures of my little cutie at the hospital....

hospital stay number 5,320

okay, well not really that many, but it feels like it. this time we actually ended up in the picu. i stayed in the emergency room with milo from about 10pm to 9am without sleeping, and then spent the whole day in the picu with him...sleeping a bit here and there when i could. i was a mess, milo was a mess...i am tired and don't really feel like getting into all of the details, but i will later, i promise. the short story is that like always with these hospital visits, it was gi issues, but pretty extreme this time, like vomiting blood extreme. so anyway, he was transferred from the picu to the gi unit at children's in dallas this evening. i will explain more later and try to keep everyone updated. goodnight.
