Disaster Time

Okay, here's an update on my son.  The doc sends my son home 2 days early.  My son can't even walk yet and the muscle spasms are constant.  Yep, he didn't make it 24 hours and we're calling and ambulance and headed for the ER.  Why is my son screaming in pain?  I do not know.  The ER did a CT scan and they see an unusual amount of fluid in the abdominal cavity.  So, here we go again.  I've lost another day of paycheck (starting to worry about losing my job now) and another 150 mile drive, this time following an ambulance.   The nurses are working on him, the floor on call Dr has been through.  This is going to be a looong, uncomfortable night.

So, if anybody is in the St Louis area, give me a shout, I could use a little company and a prayer partner......

  2. Please know I am praying for you and your son. It is so hard to understand why some go through so much. I will continue to pray.

  3. Thank you, prayers are always welcome. This is so disheartening. Theres nothing you can do to prepare for something like this. The pain, the helpless feeling, the complete destruction of your life. The worst part of it is the baby who just doesnt understand why we are either absent or tired or sad. Somewhere in all this mess, I have to figure out how to get all my sons personal effects out of his apartment and moved into storage at the farm. Both he and his fiance are now unemployed. I'm worried how I'm going to take care of all this.
