Can We Get A BREAK?????

Callie finally returned to her normal self, built her strength up and was eating GREAT:) Until, last Friday night.....she started vomiting. Each hour it seemed to get worse and worse. We just thought it was a stomach bug and it needed to run it's course. But, by Tuesday she wasn't really any better, still vomiting just not as bad and still very NAUSEOUS. I able to keep her hydrated because of her g-tube, otherwise she would be in the hospital. She has had NO fever or diarrhea along with this vomiting. Called the pediatrician yesterday to get her in to be looked at. So, today we went in at 9am, we were sent straight to Wolfson's for X-rays and blood work. She said, something is NOT right, you don't have a stomach bug for a week. She wanted us to got to the ER but I'm to familiar with the ER and I wasn't going to go sit for 6hours so my child could catch something else and then in the end for them to send me home with NO answers. Went to Wolfson's, had all the test ran and then back to the pediatrician where we sat for 2 1/2hrs waiting on results. Everything came back NORMAL!!! The next suspicion was a urinary tract infection, I guess sometimes, you can vomiting with those!?! Guess What???? NO UTI!!!!! In the end, we were sent home and to follow up in the morning to possibly have more testing, if she is not better. So far tonight she is the same:( As of tomorrrow it has been 1 week since this all started and we have no idea what is causing this vomiting. Praying it will STOP just as FAST as it CAME. Poor baby does NOT feel good at all, she just lays on the couch watching Mickey Mouse. Please pray for healing of her little body (and that nothing is seriously wrong), in time for the weekend and possibly a day at the beach. We have yet to got to the beach since we've been home:(
