No news...not good news in this case

Monday, March 18, 2013

Danny hasn't been able to keep down any solid food since Thursday, and that was very little. He has, though, by sipping slowly and continuing to try to drink even after vomiting, been able to keep down enough fluids that we have been able to avoid going to the ER for IVs. He is very, very weak and debilitated - he has to have help to get up or to walk (says he is dizzy), and sleeps most of the day.

Tomorrow he has an x-ray of the upper GI at Methodist Children's. As soon as that is over, assuming he makes it through (which I doubt because he will have to swallow something disgusting first), I will be on the phone with his doctor.

Needless to say, I am a basket case. The worst part is feeling so helpless.

    That is awful. My heart goes out to you! Hopefully if he isn't able to withstand the x-ray procedure, they will see how serious his condition truly is and commit to finding a diagnosis quickly. emoticon
