Emotionally Drained

Remember the other day when I wrote about the "cancer of the worry" issue I have? Yah well, I thought I was going to be fine after I went to the doctor the other night with Parker, but alas, no such luck.

Yes, Parker is doing so much better. The other day I was changing his diapers every hour, and they were NASTY with diarrhea. Now, its slowly going from the "d" to more of a normal consistency. The thing that is bugging me is that since he is still sick and such, his reflux has flared back to what it was when we first brought him home. Also, he has been projectile vomiting too because his belly is sensitive to food right now.

This is such an emotional drain on me. I am clinging to the fact the doctor said that with things like this, they tend to be roller coaster like, good days and then boom, its back again. I certainly feel he is on the mend, but I am just drained and want him to be back to 100%.

Continue to pray for him, please. And pray for my sanity.

I did take time to pray for you guys today- this WILL pass, just like the other struggles you've been through- just keep that in mind...though I know it's hard when he's sick & you're tired. :( Hope you all can get some rest tonight & feel better!

Deni - You're doing good. Like Carrie said, it will pass. Hang in there. We'll be there in a couple days and hope we can help give you and Andrew some relief.

Hi Denise! I am saying a prayer right now for you and for Parker. I pray that things continue to improve and that this too will pass - very soon! After the NICU, you can get through anything.
