Prayer request for my family (Update #60)
self ^ | today | Self

Posted on 08/14/2012 2:08:59 PM PDT by notpoliticallycorewrecked

Please pray for my family. My youngest son is very ill. This has been going on for two weeks. He is 22 years old. I can count on one hand how many times this kid has been sick, so this is a rare situation for him. Our doctor has run lab work (include blood and urine) and done an ultrasound without any conclusive diagnosis. They are running more tests as of yesterday with no results as yet.

Now on to my oldest son. He just deployed to the Middle East. Nuff said.

My husband has outpatient surgery on Thursday. Normally this would be a easy situation for me to handle, but I am feeling pretty overwhelmed right now.

And the frosting on the cake my old van died a few days ago.

Prayers for peace that passes all understanding. I also pray that God makes clear to the Drs exactly what is wrong with your son and that the treatment is exactly what he needs.

Lord God, from You every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. Father, You are love and life. Through Your Son, Jesus Christ, born of woman, and through the Holy Spirit, the fountain of divine charity, grant that every family on earth may become for each successive generation a true shrine of life and love. Grant that Your grace may guide the thoughts and actions of husbands and wives for the good of their families and of all the families in the world. Grant that the young may find in the family solid support for their human dignity and for their growth in truth and love. Grant that love, strengthened by the grace of the sacrament of marriage, may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trials through which our families sometimes pass. Through the intercession of the Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that the Church may fruitfully carry out her worldwide mission in the family and through the family. We ask this of You, Who is life, truth, and love with the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Ephesians 6:12 (New International Version) God be with you and your family in this time of trials.

Nausea,vomiting, abdominal pain, blood in his urine. He is eating very little and has lost weight. He is normally darker skinned, but he is pasty white.

At first I was thinking a bladder or kidney infection, then a kidney stone, but according to our doctor those are a neg.

The blood in his urine should help in making the diagnosis, and suggests several possibilities. Make sure he is being evaluated by the right people, including a nephrologist. Never hesitate to get second and third opinions, and push the medical staff to explain what their reasoning is for the tests and approaches they are taking.

Our PC is very quick to refer to a specialist. He has been my PC for around 20 years now. I am a bit surprised that he hasn’t done so already. But I am thinking that he waiting to find a conclusive diagnosis so he knows which specialist he want to refer him.

I am a nurse and was a Lab Tech in the AF many, many years ago. So I have a medical background that helps me navigate the ins and outs of the medical field. Mom here is going to get much more involved if this goes on much longer. I am trying to let him handle this since he is a young adult, but it is so hard to sit back and not put in my two cents worth.

“Mom here is going to get much more involved if this goes on much longer. I am trying to let him handle this since he is a young adult, but it is so hard to sit back and not put in my two cents worth”

You’re a really good mom. It’s very obvious. I admire the fact that you are respectful of his individuality and self-determinism, but are intimately aware of what he is going through and would clearly do anything for him. That’s wonderful.

Sorry to hear of this. You haven’t given much info, but have them check for West Nile Virus...WNV symptoms can be confused with any number of issues-confirmed only by test, especially if any known outbreak in his area/visited.

God, please have mercy on this mom and wife and her family. Please look out for her dear son, put your hand on him and take away his suffering and ailment. Please be with this family and doctors while dad goes through surgery and heals.

Lord have mercy on the soldier son. Please guide and protect him as he enters into this war. Please have mercy on all our soldiers and their famlies. We give them over to your love and care.

We rest in knowing you will handle all these worries when we are feeling overwhelmed. We turn all this over worry into your loving hands and let the clouds of fear pass. We know that you are always with us; that you carry us through overwhelming times. We know that you love us and there is no greater love. Holy Spirit give mom an extra boost of inner peace right now.

Please help her to deal with the broken down van. She needs that right now like a hole in the head! Have mercy on us.

Lord, we surrender the spirit of fear and open up our hearts to your power and love.

Amen
