Tummy Issues

*WARNING: This post contains "throw up" talk. You have been warned!

Today, this little boy has been sick...
My Mom watched the boys today and she called around lunchtime. Hudson had been throwing up all day-forceful, projectile vomits. So much throw up that she was no longer using burp rags, she was using towels. Hudson has always been a "throw up kid" but as time has gone on it has progressively gotten worse. (This is nothing new to me...Jackson had to have 2 surgerys for his vomiting.) He has been put on Prevacid and we have changed his formula- it might help for a few days and then he is right back where he started. We went to the Dr. and she sent us over to the hospital to have an ultrasound. After being there for an hour (trying to rule out pyloric stenosis), we really don't know very much. They could not see much on ultrasound because his bottle from 4 hours earlier was still in his stomach, undigested. We are going to go back tomorrow morning and hopefully he will have an empty stomach so they can see what we are dealing with.
We are coveting prayers right now. We are praying that this is not something that will require surgery to fix. We will be at the hospital at 7:15 for an ultrasound and we will go from there if we have to. I will hopefully update tomorrow evening.

Shannon - I am thinking of you and sweet Hudson. I pray that it turns out to be something very minor or nothing at all!
