My Son is Not Good At All...


Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Came home from vacation to my son who is a lot worse. He has been eating and drinking a lot - still lost 5 more pounds! He now weighs 110 and he is 5'8"! He looks awful. He wouldnt go back to the hospital so yesterday he went to a kidney dr and got an ultrasound done. The kidney dr thinks his kidney probs are secondary to something else. This morning I took him to get lots of blood work done and now we are waiting for him to get a CAT scan of his stomach and bowel. I told him after this - if it's clear - we are going to John Hopkins hospital. His vision is blurry if it's bright, he can barely walk ( had to drive a cart around grocery store), his fingers and toes are tingling, his upper back hurts and his chest is bothering him. It is taking everything I have not to cry in front of him right now! I have gone over CPR in my head several times in case he collapses - can't believe I have to imagine this!

I am wondering if it is Lyme disease - it takes about three days for that test to come back. He's also got a glucose test and thyroid test.

So...I am totally stressed out...which means I have no appetite. At some point I have to get to work to get payroll ready for tomorrow. My husband is there now - I think we are going to switch at 3:30 or I am going to have to go in tonight.

Anyway, that is what is going on at the moment! I hope you are having a better week.

    I just read this blog. You have my prayers. Your son may be extremely scared if this is beyond his control. Please take care of yourself. The food at Johns Hopkins hospital is expensive. He will have some of the best doctors in the world there. I'm praying you can find out what is going on and that no permanent harm has taken place.

    This has been a concern for some time if my memory serves me correctly. I can't imagine how difficult this must be for you to see your son so ill, not know what it is, and therefore not be able to do anything for him. Praying that the God of all hope provides you with comfort and strength at this time. Praying for wisdom for the doctors who are looking for a cause so they might proceed with a treatment plan. Most certainly praying for your son's health.

    Thanks everyone! He is getting admitted to the hospital. He knows he is staying until they figure out what is wrong. His nutrients are all out of whack. His CAT scan of his stomach and bowels came back clean. I am personally interested to find out the results of his thyroid.

I will keep you all updated!!

This must be so unbelievably hard! I hope they have some good information for you soon. Johns Hopkins has of course a fantastic reputation and may be a big help. I'll be praying for your son's good health and your peace of mind.

    I noticed a fellow spark friend had sent you some encouragement and just thought that I would also let you know that I hope you and your family get better news soon on the health front. It can be physically and emotionally draining when you are taking care of a loved one, so I hope that you, too, get the rest and support you need! Thinking positive thoughts for you and your son!
