Pray! Pray! Pray!
So much is going on right now. Noah’s blood, urine and snot are growing things due to the fever and an infection. He is on another round of antibiotics (3rd in 4 weeks) but the ND said that if it’s a fungus, of course antibiotics won’t work. Each time he gets over a pneumonia, he gets it again…His fever is lowered again, but his hematicrit was down to 24. He’ll likely need a transfusion but we are having a blood draw done prior to that. Also, today I got the lab kits for Noah’s stool to be sent to a lab for fungus testing. We’re just waiting for him to poop! The surgery is scheduled for tomorrow at 2pm but I am pretty worked up about some things and Jason and I are wondering if we should have a care conference first. Tomorrow morning the ENT surgeons will determine whether Noah should have surgery while he’s on his new round of antibiotics.
Right now neurology is doing the auditory evoked response test. Noah looks like he’s listening to tunes with big headphones.
Today while I was driving from the ND’s office back toward our house I saw Mr. Blessitt walking up the street carrying the cross. I stopped and we talked a bit then we prayed. Then he asked me if I wanted him to come pray for Noah again and I said yes, that I’d prayed that if he wanted to, it would be on his own accord. He said that as he was carrying the cross this morning, he was praying specifically for Noah. So, he said he’d be over again soon to pray for Noah.
Please pray for me as I have seen a lot of hospital politics over the last two months and I am growing weary of it. I don’t like politics ANYWHERE, so I most certainly don’t like them when they affect my son’s health.
Thank you for your prayers for all of us. Jason and I are doing great as a couple, so Praise GOD for that! We are having great times with Em, though they are sporadic, but they are quality! We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends supporting us in prayer, even friends we have yet to meet…
I pray that God would bless all of you beyond your own comprehension…He’s like that, you know…God works outside the box, He’s not in the shipping business, so don’t box Him in in your life…Let Him BE in your life. I’ll keep you posted…
