so this post will also be depressing...

Please keep my 7 week old nephew Gage in your thoughts. He was in the Hunsville AL pediatric ICU for a week and a 1/2. He was brought there because he had projectile vomit and water poop. When he arrived his temp was 95 and dropping, His organs were shutting down. None of the Drs knew what was wrong or what was causing his liver, spleen, and stomach to swell. He spiled a fever of 104 and we nearly lost him.
Monday he was transfered to Vanderbilt in Nashville TN where the DRs said there was nothing they could do because they had no clue what was going on either. We were told spend as much time with him as you can. Then they changed their minds and decided to do a liver biopsy and run a bunch of more tests.
There has been no change in him and the results wont be back for 3 weeks. He was sent home, sick as can be because they dont know how to treat him.
They have given us one possibility and it can either be treated or it can just be fatal.
So please think of him while hes at his home that things dont get worse.
