According to the ultrasound........nothing is wrong!!! Excuse me while I vent a bit. I don't usually do this y'all. So please excuse me while I do.
I know that God is all sovereign. I know that He is the Great Physician. I know that He knows what is causing the pain. And I'm not mad at Him. I just don't understand. But the ultrasound showed NOTHING!!! We were at the hospital for three hours yesterday and about an hour and a half of that my daughter was in extreme pain. Yet the ultrasound shows nothing wrong. Now the doctor says wait two weeks and if the pain continues to come back to the office to see him? I do not think so!!! She has an appointment on Tuesday and I'm keeping that appointment and I'm going to request or maybe even REQUIRE they do blood tests to see if something shows up that way. I can't stand seeing my daughter hurting like she is. There are those I'm sure who will probably say like they do about my husband that it is in her head. I see her in pain. It is not in her head. There is something wrong somewhere. And I'm going to pray and beg and plead with God and the doctors to find out what it is so she can get the help she needs for it.
I don't know why it is that this family has to be such a mystery to these doctors. My husband's health condition is a mystery. He's seen countless doctors about his physical problems and they say there is nothing wrong with him so they prescribe him anti-depressants. My husband is not depressed!!! And he's not taking them by the way. Now my daughter is hurting for the past four and a half weeks and they want her to wait even longer before they even try anything more to try to find out what is wrong. I don't think so!!
Thank you all for your prayers for her and for the rest of us. I'm really having to ask God to help me here. I usually do pretty well with things but this time I'm about at my wits end. I know that God has something in store through this situation. And I'm really trying y'all to be strong about all of this but you know as well as I do that sometimes things just get a bit heavy and you feel you could just crumble beneath the weight of it all. Well...I'm not there yet but it might not take much more.
Please forgive me for being so transparent in this post. I have seen others be transparent on their blogs and it seems to have helped them to do so. I figured I might as well give it a try. I'm not trying to murmur and complain. I know that is not what God would be pleased with. I'm just simply venting. So I guess what I'm saying is PLEASE PRAY FOR ME THROUGH ALL OF THIS. There is nothing worse than seeing your child hurting (whether physically or emotionally) and not know what to do or how to help. And then add on top of that the pain and hurt physically that a spouse is going through and not knowing what to do or how to help. That is where I'm at.
Thank you again for all your prayers for Michelle and the rest of us. Please continue to do so if you don't mind. Her next doctor appointment is Tuesday. We'll see what they say this time. I love and appreciate all of you so much!!!
