My 8 month old has an ulcer. — The Bump

My 8 month old has an ulcer.

We currenlty live just outside of Seattle, WA. I have tried every childrens hospital in the area for my 8 month old daughter. We started with Mary Bridge in Tacoma and that is where we are now, but just not getting any answers. We have been to Seattle Childrens Hospital. And that was a mess.

When my daugter was 4 months old they found that she had an ulcer and severe acid reflux. We were given a medicine to cover the ulcer up and told it will just go away. I believe it is back, as she is no longer eating again. And her GI specialist wants me to go to a speech therapist. He thinks she has a oral adversion. This is what I have been told since she was born. They even gave her a feeding tube for awhile, and I believe that may have been how the ulcer started. After I got the feeding tube out they wanted to put it back in and I kept saying no, that was how we finally found the ulcer. She also has some kidney problems that I would like a secound opinion on.  

Does anyone have any suggestions on a hospital or clinic that they like? I am willing to go anywhere. I posted earlier asking about specialist, but do not think I gave enough information.
