Hello 6 months!
Where has the time gone?!? First off, sorry for not posting as much lately. It has been a little hectic around here and to be honest, I have been cherishing my family time. Ollie was in the hospital a few weeks ago. Poor guy had the Rhino Virus and wasn't able to keep anything down. I guess being a germaphobe and keeping the little guy quarantined still wasn't enough to keep this little guy from getting sick. We had several tests done just to make sure there wasn't an underlying issue to Ollie's throwing up since he has been doing this everyday since he was born. We did another upper GI and noticed Ollie has severe reflux and his stomach empties very very slowly. Both of these explain his excessive throwing up, but the only was to fix both of these issues is with two separate surgeries. The minor surgery would be to switch his Gtube to a GJtube. This just means the tube goes beyond the stomach and empties into intestines. Jason and I discussed for hours, but my mommy gut said to not proceed with this option. I feel that there is another noninvasive option such as a blended diet. The second surgery is the Nissen and basically they wrap the upper part of the stomach and lower part of esophagus. Lets just say the doctors will have to do lots of convincing for this momma to hand over little Ollie for the Nissen. Hmm, now I know why my parents hated arguing with me growing up...what can I say, I like to play hard ball.
