Update on My Son...

Friday, November 29, 2013

I know many of you have been praying for my son.

Tuesday's blood work didn't come back good. His creatinine level was at 6. This is a sign of major kidney problems. My son used to panic when it hit 3, now he thinks the lab messed up. So, he went back for a retest this morning - yes, he procrastinated! He is ignoring the Dr's request to go to the hospital. The Dr told my husband if his lab work comes back the same today he is going to demand admittance.

He is not speaking to my husband because my husband told him he needs to go in to treatment and we will not be helping with his car insurance bill next month unless he is in treatment for his eating disorder. My two sons are now not speaking over an Xbox purchase -- and his brother's patience is worn out!

I took him out to lunch and mentioned a medication he could take for his OCD which is the root of his problems. His response "I told you not to talk about it". Mine "too bad, you need to know what will help".

He changed the subject. I just keep throwing things in here and there!

On the up side, he ate half a large Philly Cheesesteak and lot of fries. It's the most I have seen him eat in a long time.

So, we are still on limbo!

Thanks again for your concern, prayers and support!

    Kidney problems are nothing to play with. The doctors kept calling my brother in law to come in because his tests showed he needed treatment for his kidneys. He ignored the doctors. He went to the hospital one night for a totally unrelated problem and almost died. His kidneys failed him and he went into a coma. He's alright now, but will be on dialysis for the rest of his life. Ask your son how he feels about dialysis? Praying for you and your family.

    Knowing what is best for you doesn't always mean that we can see it. Just like those of us that need and know that we need to lose weight for a healthy body, we continue to feed our inner child.
My prayers continue to come your way, hoping that once he gets the blood report and it is still to high he will consent to being admitted for help. May God walk with you during this difficult time .

    This is a problem that has been going on for a long time so it's not going to go away soon. I'm glad he has previously shown some signs of improvement. I'll keep praying for you and your family.

    You have my continued prayers.One of the best quotes I've ever read on parenthood is: "Once you become a parent your heart goes walking around outside your body for the rest of your life." Hang in there and I'm glad there was some good news that your son did eat. emoticon

    High creative levels showed my hubby's kidney failure before they completely shut down. It is sad to know he does not have to be sick. I am praying he gets admitted to get some help.
May God give you peace and wisdom in the midst of this storm.

    Keep hangin' in there. Use whatever leverage you can to get him motivated in the right direction. Something will click, and when it does, you will be there to support him 100%. My prayers are with you. Stay strong.

    I am in a terminal cancer condition right now so I think I understand some of the frustration he is going through.

My prayers are coming his way. Hang in there Mom.
