Sons Blood Work is Everywhere and Dr wont see me for 2 weeks :-(

My son has completely stopped growing. In 3 months he has not put on any weight or height at all. He is 2. Through out his life his growth percentile has steadily decreased and now he is having Vommitting off and on for the past 4 months with no explanation. After seeing his pediatrician she ordered a huge variety of blood tests and they are off on nearly all of it with a few exceptions such as WBC. Below are some of the more concerning tests. Any thought would be appreciated. I'm aware most of you arent drs so I wont take it as sound medical advice but I am scratching my head and worried about my baby.

Anion Gap: 14H (has been high every blood test since June) Normal Range 4-13
Alkaline Phosphatase: 139L Normal Range 156-369
AST: 50H Normal Range 20-45
HCT: 42.0H (has been on every blood test the past 4 months) Normal Range 31.0-37.7
HGB: 13.6H (has been on every blood test the past 4 months) Normal Range 10.2-12.7
MCV: 87.5H (has been on every blood test the past 4 months) Normal Range 23.7-28.3
RDW-CV: 12.1L (has been on every blood test the past 4 months) Normal Range 12.5-14.9
Monocyte ABS: 1.07H (has been on every blood test the past 4 months) Normal Range 0.20-0.90

Thyroid is normal and Bone age test is normal which I'm told shouldnt be as he hasnt grown so his bones shouldnt be at the correct age.

I'm just lost and having to wait 2 weeks for answers is killing me.
