Philip

I will share more about my day with the DR later.
But I wanted to come and ask you to keep Philip in your thoughts. As you know he has been having some pretty serious ongoing medical issues. Today when I got home I found that he is having a really bad day. One of the worse in a long time. He is in bed and has had his morphine earlier and now a different pain medication. He is in a lot of pain and his head is throbbing. Of course I always worry about the head due to the shunts and the dreaded brain stem issue. I hate when he is in pain and there is nothing I can do to fix it for him. The Dr knows what is going on and will speak to the ER DR if we can not get this under control soon.

Thanks for the wonderful support for Philip. We will get through this and tomorrow will be a better day for him....

Amy,

I will say a prayer for Phillip! I know he is hurting and I know you are, too! There is nothing quite like seeing your child in pain or discomfort and not being able to do anything about it. May God Bless you both!

Hope said...

I am praying for him. I hope his pain eases. I'm sorry, I know how hard it is to watch your child hurt and not be able to take the pain away. ((Hugs))

I know it is so difficult to see our loved ones in pain ESPECIALLY our children, I am praying for both of you Amy. My mom had a fall last night and my sister and I were in the ER with her and as they were sowing up her forehead she was in so much discomfort. I can't wait for Heaven on days like that, no more pain, tears, falls, sickness......AMEN

Hi there Amy I just saw that you became a follower of my blog. My jaw is on the floor after reading your son's complete story! I want you to know I will be praying for him and your family! I understand the "trials" of a stroke, seizures and watching your child in pain. My heart goes out to you. May the Lord provide you all with strength and peace!
