I've just returned from a trip to the ER with my 16 year-old son. He has been having some physical problems that continue to puzzle the doctors. Tonight it was much worse than usual, hence the trip to the ER. The process for determining exactly what is going on is going to take time. As of now he has 3 doctors completely baffled and we have an appointment with a 4th doc. Now we're looking at an MRI - which our insurance does not cover. Your prayers are really appreciated.
My son is my first concern but on a more selfish note, I'm really bummed because I will not be able to go to Grand Isle in a couple of weeks. I just don't think I should leave him home with this kind of stuff going on. I know it's the right decision, and it is what I want to do, but I still feel greatly disappointed that I won't be able to go. I'll still plan the party and I'll still do the rest of the shopping and pack it all up. I just won't be there to see the kids enjoy it. There are other issues too that cause me some concern about not being able to go but I can't share those here (never know who's reading), but this will be a time of testing for me in a lot of differnet ways.
OK God. I'm listening .... what am I supposed to learn from this???
