First today, I took my oldest who is 9 tothe eye doctor. Sh ehas been complaining for the last two weeks about headaches and blurred vision. Did that, she is farsighted and needs glasses. No big deal, she is excited as most nine year olds are. HOwever, the eye doc says, I want to run a couple more tests though. Needless to say, she has pressure behind both of her eyes. That would lead one to believe that her hydrocephalus has returned. So now we are on a mission to get her back into a neurosurgeon. For those of you who have some idea of where we have been with this, you know that she had 11 brain surgeries last year. And we were told in January that it was gone. To only be told today that it has likely returned. You have no idea how well I am not handling this situation. Then, I took my five year old son to the pediatrician to try to figure out why he is bleeding from his rectum. No clue, ran some blood tests, and am COMPLETELY lost. It is just a waiting game. He wants to wait to refer him to a GI specialist, which he has already seen for issues three years ago. Just refer him. This has been going on for four months. PLease pray for their health and my sanity. I had very little to begin with, but I am feeling really pushed up against a wall. My daughter is VERY distraught by what she heard today. As one would imagine. It breaks my heart.

Thanks in advance as I know prayers around here go up daily.

Mich,

I'm so sorry to hear about the babies being sick!! OMG, your daughter!! Hug her tightly.

The pediatrician should just refer him all ready!! What's he waiting for an engraved invitation??!!!

I will keep them and you in my prayers. I will ask my prayer circle to pray as well.

I am so sorry. I don't know what else to say.

Regards,
Cyndra

OH MICH---

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR KIDS!!!

YOU ARE ALL IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!!!

Here is something from the book Language of Letting Go Daily Meditations by Melody Beattie

PEACE

Anxiety is often our first reaction to conflict, problems, or even our own fears. In those moments, detaching and getting peaceful may seem disloyal or apathetic. We think: If I really care, I'll worry; if this is really important to me, I must stay upset. We convince ourselves that outcomes will positively affected by the amount of time we spend worrying.
Our best problem-solving resource is peace.
Peace is available if we choose it. In spite of chaos and unresolved problems around us, all is well. Things will work out. We can surround ourselves with the resources of the Universe: water, earth, a sunset, a walk, a prayer, a FRIEND. We can relax and let ourselves feel peace.

"Today I will let go my need to stay in turmoil. I will cultivate peace and trust that timely solutions and goodness will arise naturally and harmoniously out of the wellspring of peace. I will consciously let go and let God.."

Mich--- You are doing so well. I remember you posting that you are not a good mother.. Well, honey, women that are NOT good mothers do NOT take their children to the doctor......Women who are not good mothers do NOT worry about their children....

You are a GREAT Mom, MICH...

I know it is very hard--- Keep your head up high, Mich.....

I will be thinking of you all and have my arms hugging you and your kids (((MICH)))

with love, friendship & respect,

NEED

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. It is a tough time, as usual. I hate to see my kids suffer, and even more I hate feeling like I am not truly being heard. Needless to say, we are starting to feel defeated as a family.

Mich~

I’d feel the same as you right now regarding your daughter if she were mine… worried/stressed. Now the needing of glasses, is that new for her? If so, guess I can see why she’d be excited…glasses for one thing are cool nowadays, ALSO if she has been having headaches the strain on her eyes could very well be the culprit, and as far as the blurred vision- makes sense if she needs glasses. Once she gets those puppy’s on, her whole world is going to came to life- and that is a wonderful thing.

NOW, the additional tests that are being run because of the pressure behind her eyes-----this is so easier said than done, but try to take any worry that you have mama about this and replace that energy spent worrying with praying (as well as asking for prayer for strength for you) that is has nothing to do with her previous reasons for the surgeries she has endured. One of the hardest things I have had to learn as a mother is to stop the worrying as my worrying didn’t change a thing…I finally learned that lesson a hard way after 20 years of being a complete worry wart of a mother…it came to a halt after the year in a half when my son came home from overseas playing solider…I was stressed the entire time, feeling guilty that I gave him my blessings to join the service on so on…what ended up happening is that the worrying didn’t do me a bit of good, and actually caused my son more stress, and when all was said and done, I aged, boy did I age. And all my son just needed from me was to support him, to pray for him.

Take it a day at a time, make the needed appointments for follow up and in the meantime while waiting for her glasses to come in, and to keep her mind off of what she heard today … take her to the bookstore to pick out some cool new books as she is going to be in heaven when those pages now come to life : )

Now your baby boy : ( have to agree with Cyndra “The pediatrician should just refer him all ready!! What's he waiting for an engraved invitation??!!!” Sometimes we have to be an advocate for ourselves, for our children and just get tough and demanding. And I know, I know when we are so overwhelmed with so much going on in our lives it hard to sort it all out as we feel just so kicked down and exhausted. But get on that phone tomorrow and demand that you get that referral to a specialist!! It’s pretty empowering sometimes to just be a plain b*tch esp when it comes to our kids-and do I have a story for you when my son went through heart testing (he was 17) and they LOST the results- did I come unglued- they then moved their butts pretty quickly.

Mich another way to look at today is not a defeat in anything but a blessing- problems are going to get solved here – answers will be found out with the kids. This is going to help you relax some with those underlying worry’s you have.

You and your children will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Mich you every have right to be sad... these are your babies here we're talking about and you all have been through so much.

I hope that I didn't come across as insenstive to your pain, cause I know that your pain and worry's are very real and very overwhelming- ANY mother would be feeling as you are right now.

LL,

Can you name the last time I recall you EVER sounding insensitive? Me niether. My only answer to that is NEVER. I knew what you meant. I am trying to not be over sensitive, and think the worst. I am just struggling with all of this. I don't want to see my babies hurt anymore. I am so tired, and so weak. This just makes me want to throw up.

My daughter seemed to be in a little better spirits when she left for school today. I just reassured her that there is NOTING stating that this is indeed the problem. There are only 3 things that cause high eye pressure, but we can hope for either of the other two as they are treatable. But, you have to realize that our discouragement in all of this is HUGE. We naturally fear the worst. The five months of hell that we went through last year was something that I would prefer to never face again, or watch her face again either one. Just please pray for peace, and pray that the doctors move fairly quickly on getting a new referral to a neurosurgeon. Thanks

Thanks Jas. It means the world to me. If you could just pray for what you mentioned and in particular, PEACE, would be good. No matter how hard we try not to think the worst, it is tough.
