We really need this vomiting to shut off before he becomes "failure to thrive" and they discuss bypassing his stomach again. He's lost about 2lbs and it's not getting any better with the amount of calories he's keeping down in a day. He can't survive off Pedialyte forever, so please keep him in your thoughts.

Still working on recovery
I'm very interested to see how the boys are tomorrow. As of today, Brady still has a pretty nasty cough and Jax is still vomiting. He vomited up his breakfast and dinner on Saturday, and his lunch today. I called the pediatrician on call today to discuss if Jax should be brought into the ER because I had a sudden panic that this kid has puked for 12 days now and is wasting away. But he's not dehydrated (at least not too bad) so an ER would only rehydrate him and give him something like Zofran until he can be seen by his doctor. So I agreed to keep him going another night at home and contact our doctor tomorrow. So far, Jax has held down his dinner (which is only 4oz of formula), so maybe he only had 1 episode today and he truly is "getting better".
