He was 7lbs. and 14 oz. at birth. He was 2 weeks old Friday. She tried to breast feed and they said her milk didn't come in and the baby was literally starving to death. Last Monday the Dr. put him on soy formula to try to get him to gain weight. He has been throwing (not spitting) it up. He was at the Dr. Thursday and still hadn't gained any weight. Actually still losing weight. Dr. said to call if he threw up again. Yeasterday he violently threw up and she called. Dr. met them at ER and I'm not sure what was done at the hospital, but they rushed him 2.5 hours away to a larger hospital by ambulance. He had lost another whole pound. He hasn't gained anything since birth. They are going to operate on him today.
I haven't heard anything today other than they haven't done the surgery yet. I have no idea what they will operate for or on.
Anyone know what may be wrong? Has anyone seen this before?
