Stitch Update

Will is still in the hospital tonight. Josh is at the hospital with him tonight. Today the doctors gave him an enema (the third one in three days), fun! They don't believe that he has the flu, has any obstructions or that he is still constipated. They think that he has an irritation in his GI track causing him to vomit. The doctors said that it usually lasts between 5 and 10 days before the track is healed. They are thinking that he is on the tail end of it since he has been vomiting since Tuesday of last week.

They are keeping him on IV fluids until they are sure that he can keep is pediasure bolus (the tube feedings that we use the pump) down. He is on a clear liquids diet until tomorrow when they will start to slowly give him his pediasure.

We are hoping that he will get to come home tomorrow, but we are not sure. He is being a good boy and handling everything every well. He is getting bored and wants to be up moving around which is hard with an IV.

Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes! I will continue to keep you updated.

So sorry that this is dragging on, but glad to hear the doctors have a plan. We're praying for Will's healing and the doctor's wisdom.

Poor guy. Hospital stays are so hard, especially when you keep hoping to go home soon and they tell you no.

Still praying!

Hope the little guy is feeling better and home soon! I am glad he is handling everything well. My thoughts went to "how is active little Will going to tolerate being hooked up to an IV".

Hugs!
