The Magnificent Seven

First, all seven specialties showed up! Yay! I think this shows what a great resident Brad is and what a special kid Cooper is.  We're going to try a few new things, and do a few tests to rule some things out. First, for 24 hours he's going to be on pedialyte. Then we're going to try a different formula. One that is not milk based. This will rule out a milk allergy, which babies can get after the first year or so. If he still heaves and wretches well know he's fine with milk. If not, problem solved!

In the meantime, he's going to have an ultrasound of his brain to rule out any neurologic causes of the vomiting. He is also going to have a GI scope to make sure his esophagus and lymph nodes are ok. Also, they're going to do some labs to make sure his electrolyte levels are good.

Looks like we will be here through the weekend while all of this is happening, but at least now we have a game plan and are being proactive instead of just responding to symptoms.
