A little scare

Last night Sophia projectile vomited and I thought maybe I fed her too much/too fast or maybe there was something in my milk. She puked more during the night and then a big amount this morning and so I called the doctor thinking that it was probably just reflux. They had me bring her in and were questioning whether she had this condition called Pyloric Stenosis, which probably would require surgery and a whole mess of other things. They ended up doing an x-ray of her belly and found that the belly is full of gas, more than normal, and we are not sure why that is happening. They also did blood work, I then came home and the office called me because the blood work came back abnormal and they wanted me to go back and get more drawn. So needless to say the one day when we didn't have a doctors appointment this week, we had to be in:( I know that God is in control, but am totally discouraged. I had really been hoping that once she was here that the worrying about health stuff would be over. Matt and I are both feeling like Why can't we just have a healthy kid? So we have to go back tomorrow and they are going to reevaluate the situation. I guess the doctor is starting to be more concerned with her poor weight gain, and she is thinking that there may be something to it.

This hat that she is wearing was made by a friend of mines mother, isn't it so cute?
