For those of you who don't yet know what has been happening at our house the last few days, well months actually, here is a little update.
Sam is heading to Loma Linda once again. But this time it is not for a broken bone. Although they may ultimately find out that it is caused by the spinal fractures that he has.
A few months ago Sam woke up and could not walk or even stand up. So I took him to the hospital thinking he had broke something. They did x-rays and said that he hadn't broke but the problem was he was so constipated that it was pushing his spine out. There is no way I would have thought that he was having this particular problem being that he uses the restroom 2 to 3 times a day. So they put him on medication for 3 weeks and then he had to follow up with his pediatrician. So we went to the DR after the 3 weeks and she said that he was still very backed up so she put him on all kinds of meds, he had to have 2 enemas and drink all this nasty stuff. Then he had to have MORE x-rays. The DR called me and said that none of the meds had helped him. The poor boy was living on the toilet at this point he was going so much. So she referred us to a specialist at Loma Linda. It took us almost 3 moths to finally get in to see the DR yesterday. So now he wants him admitted to the hospital and they are going to put a tube down his nose into his stomach and try to flush everything out it will probably take 2 to 3 days to get him completely cleaned out. Then they will do an MRI and numerous tests to try and find out why this happened and to see if this is going to continue. Can we say "FUN"
They were suppose to get him in last night but they didn't have any beds available so hopefully they can get him in today.
And if this were not enough reason to call on the Lord, My van is not working and I am not sure how I am going to afford to get it fixed. But I will not stress over it. The Lord ALWAYS provides even when I don't see a way HE make it happen!
