We have had some super sick kids. Fevers. Vomiting. Coughing... actually more like barking like seals. Friday I took the boys in to the pediatricians and they got chest x-rays. No pneumonia... yay. But they did need oral steroids.
Sunday evening I took Michael to the E.R. and we got home in the wee hours of the morning. He had been having sharp abdominal pains which was rather worrisome especially given the fact that was the start for Samuel that led to his diagnosis. Michael was really constipated. Thankfully things are much better now.
Michael and Samuel have had to stay home from school all week though because they're still hacking.
Tomorrow is a big day for Samuel. We leave very early in the morning to take him to CHKD for a CT scan and a follow up appt. with his oncologist.
My friend Nathalie recently wrote a very beautiful post on her blog prayerwalkguides.com that describes so much of how I feel... this waiting game that I often feel I am in. She describes it much better though. More elegantly and more powerfully. You can read her blog post here.
God willing all will be well. I will update as soon as I can.... Please pray.
