Home from the hospital

hospital.jpgMy little one was rushed to the ER yesterday from being dehydrated, due to a nasty stomach bug. His doctor told me that his body was producing acid, which was in his bloodstream. It’s side effects were vomiting and diarrhea, so even if the bug were on the tail end…my son wouldn’t have stopped throwing up at both ends. He basically was in a downward spiral to no end.

I thank the Lord that He gave me the clarity and wisdom to know to get him the help he needed and fast. My mother added his name to a prayer chain, through church, and put the word out to our huge family of believers. So, we had so many loved ones and friends praying for him. God has answered our prayers in a desperate time of need. He’s gone from being non-responsive to an alert little boy. He’s now home, re-hydrated, but we’re watching him to make sure he doesn’t relapse.

Please keep us in your prayers as well for continued healing. Thank you to all of my friends!

  1. One of the most helpless feelings is watching our children suffer. I’ll pray for a speedy and complete recovery for your son and for comfort and peace for you.

    God bless you and your family.

    David.

  2. Praying for you for sure…
    – for complete and speedy recovery
    – for not-too-much orneriness when he starts feeling like himself again 😉
    – for not-to-much worriness from Mom as she keeps him under watchful eye
    – for NO lingering after-effects. None whatsoever.

  3. Prayers for sure! It’s so hard to know when our kids illnesses/injuries cross the line to seek more help. Health, patience, and sleep for you all….

  4. Oh my goodness! He is in my prayers! I am glad that he is on the road to recovery and I hope that he continues down that road and not have a relapse.

  5. Thank you. I appreciate all of you. I have to take him back in today. His urine is cloudy so he may have a little infection now. Poor little guy!

  6. I’m so glad that he is getting better! I’m sure that’s a relief for you. Wornoutwoman does not need to be excessively worn out or worried about her little ones… I pray continuous and rapid healing for your piccolo un! (little boy)
