Today was a difficult day. For over a week we have been patiently watching Luke. Like a new parent watches every move and sound their newborn makes, that was us this last week.
We knew in our heart something was wrong with Luke again but, I have to admit, was very diffcult to admit. Luke is back at Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin. His little belly is still distended. We know he is not well. Boy is it hard….
So we watch and wait. Our great surgeon Dr. M was on call and we can’t tell you how much peace it brings to see him walk in the door. We are blessed with great doctors in Austin.
Luke has an IV for fluids and he is NPO yet again. We will rest his bowels and will do some small procedures to try and release some of his gas. Tomorrow is more x-rays and most likely another contrast study.
It is Lent around these parts and I find it very difficult to focus on preparing for our Lord. I know this sounds bad but I got mad at God again today. A dear priest friend always told Kathryn and I it is okay to get mad at God, he can take it. Well today is one of those days. Please pray for Luke and our family. We need ’em.
Kathryn should be back in the saddle again soon…until then you have to put up with me.
