Just a quick blurb while Gideon seems to be happy watching Big Comfy Couch. We've been in the local children's hospital since last Thursday due to Gideon's dehydration and vomiting. They also want to find out why Gideon isn't gaining weight and in fact seems to be losing weight. There have been so many blood tests and urine tests and cultures and normal results and some abnormal ones. He has seen a neurologist and later today is going to see a nephrologist (kidney specialist) and a nutritionist many times. I don't know what else to say except that I think we are both getting annoyed with being in the hospital and all the pokes and prods and being told we can probably go home "tomorrow" and then being told no. I am so very thankful that my sister was able to come and stay at the house with Gabe and Zion and I am very thankful that he has stopped vomiting! Now he just needs to gain weight! Even though he has stopped throwing up his food and is back on solids as well as nursing he is still losing weight. *sigh* I guess all I can do is pray and I hope that you'll join me. Gideon really needs it right now.
