Dr Appt update

There was some insurance issues yesterday so they scheduled a sweat test to be done next Tuesday. I don't think I mentioned but my son has a birth defect called Pectus Excavatum and apparently it can put pressure on the heart and lungs. It hasn't always been an issue but with the rapid growth during adolescence it can start causing problems. The Dr ordered a chest xray yesterday and called with the results today. I wish I could say it was great news but she let me know she is scheduling a CT scan to happen in the very near future. Honestly I am not dealing with this very well...I know what the Word says so PLEASE do not email me about having more faith or leaning on God because right now I am not there and trust me it won't be received well. I am sure it is hard having a sick child as a married person but being single it just feels overwhelming. I KNOW I have God but I also feel alone. I also know this is all on me....I have already had to miss work twice in the last two weeks and I have to take off next Tuesday ....this might just be the beginning. If he has to have surgery like they think then I will have to figure out how to do that AND put a roof over my kids head and food on the table. Anyway, I am sure we will be fine...we always are.

I'm so sorry. It sucks and it's frustrating. How's that for me not telling you to lean on God?? =0)

Thinking of you today, and praying for your sanity.

I'm so very sorry. I do understand. I get so overwhelmed with all that I must deal with concerning my Youngest ... and my ex blames anything about her on me ... though we have some of the leading physicians as her doctors. The weight is suffocating.

I don't have any advice ... just a single mom who knows how hard it is to go it alone ... with a child who needs extra care, extra meds, extra doctors, extra etc. Somedays, it's just all I can do to breathe.

I will most certainly keep you and the children in my prayers!

I can't even imagine how hard this must be Barbie. Anyone who gives you a lecture now, is clearly not dealing with what you are dealing with. I'm praying for you and for your family today, and always.

You know that you ALWAYS have a place to go. If worse comes to worst - which it will not - you can come here, and you know that. It's not ideal, but you and your kids will never ever be without a roof. I promise you.

I love you more than seems rational, and I'm praying as hard as I can. I'm here ... any time, all the time, for anything and everything you need.

I understand. I was out of days off in July due to my son's therapy. I am praying for you. I mean that. Praying. Without Ceasing.
