 Calling my praying friends...

I am preparing to take K to the ER. Although I have no idea if he is dealing with a typical illness or if something is going on with his shunt I thought I would send out a quick prayer request. He is very listless and has slept most of the day away. He really doesn't want to wake up. He was a little bit more tired than usual this morning, but I didn't think much of it. I went to read at his preschool a couple of hours after we sent him to school and his teachers told me that he had slept during his entire bus ride there. They also said he was very tired and not his usual perky self. Since we've been home all he has done is sleep. He has vommited once. These are symptoms of shunt malfunction. Unfortunately the symptoms of shunt malfunction and regular sicknesses are so similar that as parents these are hard judgement calls. We just don't mess with it. I'm taking him to a hospital an hour away where I know they know what they are doing. His neurosurgeon also happens to work out of that hospital, so that is a good thing. I will try to update when I can. Thanks so much dear friends and family. I am tired and I have to admit this kind of thing does get my anxiety level up a bit. Stretching my faith, once again. Knowing that God is in control and knows exactly what K will need. ~Wendi

I just started following this blog - and I must say I am enjoying it very much. All that to say, I'm not all that familiar w/ K and the condition - but it sure sounds like something that needs to be brought before the Lord...who is All-Knowing...and I have said a little prayer that the Lord would be the Sustainer of you all during this time. Blessings!

Oh lady, I'm sorry. YES! This kind of thing gets the anxiety up. Which in it's intended doses can serve it's mothering purposes. To protect our children. You're doing the right thing.

You recently told me you err on the side of caution with the shunt stuff (of course I paraphrase). That's the right thing to do.

I'm praying for you and your K.

I'll be looking for updates and hoping for the best and for peace for you all.
