    Today is 9 days since Lauren's surgery and we thought we'd be home and enjoying recovery at this point but it's not the case. Lauren still cannot keep down even fluids. She had a PICC line inserted yesterday and they will start supplemental nutrition today. The surgical team has now called in other departments to try to figure out just what is going on! Today we should be seeing medical, endocrinology and gastroenterology and I'll see what their plan is. There's just no reason for this and the surgeon decided that this is not surgical (he's checked into EVERYTHING) and he thinks something else is going on.

    PLEASE pray that #1 the vomiting stops and #2 that we get an answer for all of this. I want to know today what is going on. It's just SOOOOOOO frustrating to see my 21 year old daughter so sick!!

    Continuing to pray for Lauren and the family. Praying that the vomiting stops and she continues to gain strength. Praying for Jesus' peace for the family as well. We have also added Lauren and the family to our Church's Prayer list.

    Thank you all. Last night, my husband came into the hospital (he's been mostly caring for the kids) and a deacon from our church came as well (poor man had to sit in 3 hours of traffic on the Cross Bronx Expressway!!). We all prayed for her and my husband anointed her with oil as per James 5.

    They did a test yesterday that tested the function of her stomach and it is working fine - no tears, no ulcers, no blockage. So we don't know what is going on. Please continue to pray that this vomiting will stop. She's now on supplemental nutrition so that we don't have to worry about her losing strength from starving.

    Oh Ann, Lauren and your family have been in my prayers since the begining. I will certainly continue.

    Have they considered that this is a side effect from some of the meds she's been on?

    No because she is not on any meds that would have this issue. She's on antinausea meds now since she's been vomiting and the only thing she was on before this was morphine but that was just for two days and she had vomiting before and after it. She's now on Reglan every 6 hours, Compazine as requested, Ativan once a day at night and then the TPN (nutrition). The Reglan, Compazine and Ativan are all for the vomiting.
