My blog has been silent for awhile. I thought I would share why. My 8 month old son could not keep any solids down starting at 6 months and was even struggling to keep liquids down. He would spit up 30+ times per hour and was not gaining weight. They kept thinking he was just a "spitty baby" but I finally cracked and insisted something be done. An upper GI study was done and they found a small bowel malrotation. This was causing an intermittent bowel obstruction...thus the profuse spitting up! He had surgery at Doernbecher Childrens Hospital on Dec 18th. I cannot say enough good things about Doernbecher Children's Hospital. We are blessed to have them near us. We did make it home before Christmas on Dec 22nd but needless to say we layed low for the Holidays. We were just thankful for being home with our little girl and our healing little boy. He is still struggling with solid food and still has specialist appointments galore but the spitting up has now reduced to a tolerable level. I will get back to the blog and open my store again when my life and my child's health are back in order.
