Praise the Lord for NO SURGERY this time around! Isaiah's blockage has been resolving with bowel rest. Thank you for praying. God answered.
I really appreciate all the kinds words, encouragement, and Bible references on faith, staying strong, and God's presence even during the dark times. In my mind, I know God is in control, but my heart struggles with His sovereignty and love. Life is just really hard. And, when it's your child that is hurting and you can't do anything about it, but you know that God can heal and chooses not to, it can shake your faith to the core. I know Isaiah is here to change the landscape of the life I planned out, but the journey we are on together has been excruciating at times. But, it is a learning process, so I am learning.
Today at about 4pm, Isaiah took a turn for the better. He has had a significant decrease in pain and in the frequency of pain. He has started to ask for something to eat. Hopefully, he will be able to start on some clears tomorrow. So far, all his test results have come back negative, except for the Rotavirus. Not sure where he could have caught the "cold", but once again, it has done it's damage. Unfortunately, we are reminded again that Isaiah's body cannot handle the "common cold", because it will shut down his gut. The doctors have been wonderful, and we just love our nurses as well. Many of the nurses come by just to visit, even when they don't have him for their shift. Isaiah loves the attention!!!!!!!
Thank you for continuing to walk this journey with us. We love and appreciate you all so very much.
John 3:30, "He must increase, but I must decrease." This is my life verse I chose years ago--what a process!
