A couple days ago I posted about Hannah having a procedure. Now I'm asking for prayers.

She has complained of tummy pain since June. She began throwing up almost every day about 8 weeks ago. Usually she vomits once, first thing in the morning, before breakfast and it's usually just bile (stomach acid). Occasionally she throws up again in the afternoon or evening.

She's had:
Blood test for food allergies - all negative
Abdominal ultrasound - found only debris on bladder (usually from UTI)
2 urinalysis and cultures to check for UTI - all negative
And then an Upper Endoscopy with biopsies - initially doc only found abrasions from all the vomiting so he's prescribed antacid medication. Follow-up appointment is scheduled for the 10th to see what else might be learned from the biopsies.

She has puked Thursday evening, yesterday morning, and today both in the morning and right after dinner. This evening she crawled onto my lap and laid her head against me while I rubbed her back. Ryan Harley (https://www.facebook.com/ryancharley?__tn__=%2CdK-R-R&eid=ARA02sjvIKCzj2yGMZokAxApTO_C3EZUpIHtEUm4fM_ALtFaB7cEjTj984R1j5iHN6sHKpPoSDt0_3uW&fref=mentions) asked her what she needed and she replied "It's the throwing up. I just can't handle it anymore."

I'm so heartbroken, my sweet girl went to bed feeling broken and I'm sitting here crying as I type this. I don't know what else I can do for her! It sucks we have to wait 11 more days for the next appointment and we may not learn anything.

Please, my friends and family, send Hannah some prayers, positive thoughts, good vibes, anti-nausea meds, anything! I just want her tummy to feel "normal"!!! Sorry this is so long, I just needed to get it out.
