Hello Everyone.

It’s been a few days since my last entry, and that’s because I’ve had so much going on with my baby boy’s health. It seems like it’s one thing, after another, after another and there have been so many specialists and tests and more to come.

It feels like it’s just been one big whirlwind.

I’m sure you are all scratching your heads wondering what I’m talking about. There’s just so much to tell. From him refusing to breastfeed and gain weight, having swollen lymph nodes for over 2 months, the crying and fussiness, and knowing your baby generally feels ill – its very frustrating. Add to that potential seizure activity, and it creates a recipe for madness. Add on top of that the idea that your pediatrician is concerned enough to test for cancer, and you’ve got one completely broken down mama. His daddy and I are just beside ourselves right now.

From cranial ultrasounds, to neurology appointments, to an upcoming overnight EEG at the children’s hospital, to blood work screening him for cancer (you have no idea how scared I am about that – that testing happens today); from gastroenterology appointments, to feeding studies, aspiration studies, new medications and more, my life hangs in the balance of chaos. I have to be strong for my baby boy and we need to get to the bottom of whatever is going on.

If you could please keep my son, Richi, in your thoughts and prayers, as well as our whole family during this difficult time, I would so appreciate it.

I will update as I can.

Thank you all! xo

    I read this a little while ago but then my three month old needed me so I went to her before I could respond. I changed her diaper and then went to sit with her in our rocking chair because she was tired; and as soon as I sat, I began praying for Richi. I prayed for you and your husband as well. I cried as I asked God to heal your little boy, and I thanked Him for being with you both and giving you comfort. I cannot imagine the fear you must be feeling, but God is BIGGER than any fear – don’t forget that!! And keep in mind that He knows and loves Richi even *more* than you guys do. Isn’t that astounding?! How COULD He, right?! I’m always blown away at that thought because I know how much I love my kids and, in the natural sense, no one could love them more than I do – but HE DOES! 😀
    I’m sorry, I wrote a novel. lol Just know that I’m here and I’m praying! XO

    Thank you so much, sweetie. No worries – I completely understand exactly how it is to be needed by the littles! The fact that you took the time to pray for him really touches me – and I thank you for it. It means so much to my whole family. The world needs more people like you! Yes, I am so afraid – but you’re absolutely right, God is bigger than our fear and he is in control. It’s just so hard to let go and let God sometimes because I’m sort of a control freak when it comes to my kids. I always have to be in control, be in the know, and have a say in what’s going on. In this situation, I have no control. So, for me, this is extremely difficult. I’m working on that about myself. Exactly, it’s hard to fathom how anyone in the whole world could love my baby or any of my children as much as I do – but then I remember God does. It’s mind blowing. And seriously, don’t apologize for the long comment – I love them! You’re a great friend! xo
