Prayers Please

Hi!!

Last week I got that call from daycare, the one that every parent hates, the one that sounds exactly like "hi, your kid is sick, please come get him."

Blerg. "Ok, I'll be right there!"

I picked up The Boy Child and although he was running a bit of a fever, he didn't seem to have any other symptoms. I tried to give him some dinner, of which he refused, and then tucked him into bed. He tossed and turned all night, several times waking up totally disoriented, and when morning rolled around I was fairly confused and concerned as to what was going on.


I've told you before that I treat my kids holistically and often shun Western medicine. I routinely challenge what the doctors tell me and I make no apologies for it, but at the same time I'm not an idiot and given the strangeness in the way he was acting, I made him a doctor appointment.

The doctor looked him over, didn't see too much, but what she did see, she didn't really like. She decided to order some labs and sent us on our way.

That was on Thursday.

Friday morning I got a call saying that they had found something in his labs and that they wanted me to take him to the children's hospital in the city. Friday afternoon I made him an appointment, but because it's a specialty hospital, there was a several week wait. An hour later the children's hospital called and said that they had received the labs from the pediatrician's office and that they wanted to see The Boy Child the very next day, which would have been today. After some back and forth between doctor's offices and the logistics of weekend testing, it was instead decided that he will go on Monday for more labs and an ultrasound.

I'm not panicking, but I am worried. I know at this point that something is wrong, but I don't know how little or how big that "wrong" is. It could be something super easy, or it could be something much more serious. The way the doctors are acting has me nervous, yet at the same time they do have a tendency to overreact since we are in fact, medical mutants. So... I'm really not sure.

I'm obviously scared for him, and if I'm being honest here, I'm also scared for me, so I need to step away from the blog for a few days and focus on him.

But, although not an ideal situation, the timing works out, because Mr. Attorney Man sent over his TWELVE page blog post with the answers to the questions you all asked in "Want To Ask An Attorney A Question For Free?" So Monday that will run and since it's so long, I'm going to leave it hang around for a while as the top post, and give you guys time to filter through it. Hell, leave a few comments, because if you have ever been in the hospital, you know that you spend about 100 hours sitting around, so you all can give me something to do!

In the meantime, I would appreciate your prayers. I'll probably pop into the blog's Facebook page, so if you are friends with me over there, I'll try and keep you updated.

Alright everyone, have an AMAZING weekend and I'll hopefully be back towards the end of the week.

    3. WTF kind of fucked up comment is that?????????? Why do all the people who want to come here and be close-minded, racist assholes all choose to be anonymous? Because they're ashamed, that's why. And you SHOULD be, Anonymous. Go crawl back into whatever hole you crawled out of, and leave the decent people alone.

    4. Well, Anon, either you've not been following this blog for very long, or you believe that Eden has been posting edited photos of someone else's kids since she started it.

      FYI, children share the dna of both parents, if the kids don't have Eden's blue eyes it's because they inherited eye colour from their father.

    5. Yep, they look nothing like me!! And if they aren't really mine, don't tell anyone because I plan on keeping them...

      They should be happy they don't look like me, because after a day at the park on Sat, they look like they spent a week at the beach and I look like I took a nap on a grill. I'm burned to a crisp and they have a tan I would kill for!

  4. Hang in there, Eden. He's a strong boy, he'll put up a fight. Stay strong this week, I'll be thinking of all three of you.

  9. This is what I tell myself when things like this happen to me and mine. If it were really bad, the doctor would've transferred him to the children's hospital directly from his office. I've had that happen precisely once in my life and it was when my blood pressure and protein levels were high enough that the ob thought induction was preferable to risking my life and my daughter's. This is concerning and serious, but not so much that the doctor transferred you there directly. That said, I am keeping the boy-child in my thoughts today. Break a leg in there.
