Our son has been having issues with reflux,chest and stomach pain,and anemia that refused to go away despite taking large amounts of iron supplements.
We had to go to Children's Hospital of Milwaukee Wednesday and Thursday. My poor little guy had to have blood drawn 5 times,an IV,a major nasty GI clean out,and an NG tube shoved down his throat. They took him in for his endoscopy and colonoscopy yesterday morning. We were in the room waiting for them to take him in,and I glance over,and tears are streaming down my DH's face. That got me going. We went down to the cafeteria to get some food,and i started bawling at the table. We were SOOO scared about what the scans were going to find. They stuck us in this consult room,and we sat there for 20 minutes freaking out. The doc came in and shows us the pics of his scans. He has a hiatal hernia in his stomach (the sphincter that closes up the bottom of the esophagus into the stomach is loose,so acid and food sloshing back up his throat) and he has several esophageal ulcers. :(
He's on a med to coat the throat so the ulcers can heal,and Prilosec for the acid production.
I have only seen my husband cry 2 times before in the 14 years we've been married. When our daughter died,and at the birth of our son. Seeing him cry broke my heart in 2. I also fell in love with him all over again. :)

Oh my, you guys have sure been through a lot! More than anyone should have to endure. The fact that you face these terrible problems together & allow it to strengthen your relationship says a lot. Give that man a hug & thank him again for being your husband & your children's father. And give that little guy a hug too. I'm glad you finally know what's wrong with him & hope he gets better quick! *Hugs*
