My Family Is Struggling (Updated)
Wednesday, May 08, 2013
I knew he wasn't feeling well yesterday. He didn't smile when I took him his blankie. He didn't want his bus (his favorite of all toys). He wasn't jabbering or singing (a very loud hummmmmmmm). He's so ill
He isn't healing. Actually, his incision area is healing but his insides are not. If anything, he is worse. A test performed on Monday evening showed distention in both the small and large intestines. I was wondering why the Dr. that came in was questioning us about his biological/familial background with cancer. That word has never even been mentioned or on our thought radar. So, of course, when I got home, I did what you shouldn't do unless you want to be frightened beyond reason. . .I googled it! A distention in the large intestine is rare and is indicative of many things but the most prominent reason is cancer.
.Oh. My. Freakin'. Goodness!
Okay, it is hopefully something else, like diverticulitis, or a twist there, or whatever. . .
PLEASE GOD...DON'T LET IT BE CANCER! Not for him. Give it to me. I'll take it. I'd take his place right now if it would only bring him good health and bring him home! He's been through so much in his young life! I know God has his reasons and we shouldn't question so I'm not. I just ask that He let me take my brother's place. Let him be well.
***Thank You God!*** It isn't cancer but there is a definite blockage in the large intestine. His surgery has been scheduled for Friday afternoon.
And THANK YOU to all who have commented and lifted prayers for him and for my entire family. They are greatly appreciated and definitely welcomed!
