Thanks for praying!!! – Emily’s x-rays came back fine. We ask the doctor why they were concerned with the first set and she said that if you are not familiar with reading children’s x-rays versus adult x-rays, it looks suspicious. Since children are growing they have more space in there so they have room to grow.
Jonathan – Thank you for praying for Jonathan this morning! He was doing well until he sat in the chair for the procedure. I told him to quote his verse for the nurse to help his mind. He did it so well and then crossed his legs! He did not want the shot. It didn’t take too long and they were able to give him the shot, but it hurt!!! He screamed (in my ear) for close to 20 seconds. It seemed like forever. He is screaming and as I am holding him closely trying to calm him, I am crying (imagine that!!) I kept repeating verses and all to try and calm him, but nothing worked as it HURT! It took a while to settle down after the shot and then the doctor came in to do the procedure. She did one little section and he didn’t feel that, but then the next spot he told them it hurt so they said we will numb it a little more. So, here we ago again. Mom is still holding tightly and Jonathan kept yelling “NO!” They kept doing their thing and he ended up with 7 stitches and an emotional momma! As you can tell, I don’t do too well with these things when it comes to my babies.
They bandaged him up and off to Dunkin Donuts we went for a good double chocolate donut with chocolate milk!! Now he gets to enjoy time with mom today at home. I don’t know if he needs it or I need it! He is doing fine.
The doctor told us to come back in 2 weeks to take the stitches out and to get the results. I asked if we could call sooner for the results and she said they probably would not have them before and were hoping to even have them back at the time of the appt. Ok, that is not what we were wanting to hear! Please pray for us as we have another 2 weeks to wait for the results.
This verse was sent to me this morning –
Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about
you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
surely I will help you.
Surely I will uphold you
with My righteous right hand.
What a joy to know that we do not have to fear as the Lord will strengthen us, help us and uphold us. Thank you for caring for our family and praying for us.
