An update on little X-man. They tested his blood again today and --praise God! His numbers are dropping! Thank you for all of your wonderful prayers. His leg is improving, and they figured out that the virus he has had taken up residence in his hip joint and caused some swelling and pain there. Well, he's doing so well that he gets to go home today. Thank you, God, and all of you prayer warriors!! We appreciate you all!
Well, the saga continues. There is something going on with little man. We spent the day at the ER on Sunday, and they wanted him checked again in a few days. So his Momma took him to the doctor today and after running some more tests, they said they wanted him admitted to the hospital.
I'm fuzzy on the details, but something in his blood that they checked was too high on Sunday, and when they checked it today, it has almost doubled. He's lost a pound and a half since Sunday because he hasn't been eating.
They're going to check him out thoroughly, and hopefully they'll figure it out. He has a fever still (a week now), his gums are bleeding spontaneously, this marker is too high in his blood, which indicates some type of an inflammation, and I don't even know what all else.
Please pray! Pray for peace for his mom and dad, and for us, too! Pray that they will figure it out and be able to take care of it. Pray that everything will go smoothly, and that the doctors will be given wisdom and guidance. We remember, though, that in all things, He works for the good of those who love Him.
Father God, even right now, when we are uncertain and worried, we just lift little X-man up to your capable arms. We trust you. We know that you will never forget or forsake us. Thank you, Lord, for your loving presence. We rest in your embrace. We ask this in the strong name of Jesus! Amen.
