Update On Michelle
We went to the doctor today for Michelle's follow-up. The doctor examined Michelle again and once again told us the results of the ultrasound were negative. When she pressed on Michelle's belly there was still pain. She is ordering a blood work-up. We will go Thursday (Lord-willing and I'm feeling better) to the hospital to get that done. We are also going to be scheduling an appointment with a GI specialist. The doctor did say that depending on the results of the blood work the GI specialist may want to run some tests. If the blood work shows something and it is clear what the problem is then she won't have to have any further tests done. That is what I'm praying for at this point. The doctor said that if the results are negative or normal (however you want to say it) then she may have to have a colonoscopy. Michelle's eyes got very big and said she didn't want to have that done. I'm praying she won't have to. She is so young to have to have something like that done.
I haven't scheduled the appointment with the specialist yet. I've not felt well today and am not in a position to concentrate on doing something as tedious as that. With the insurance we have the visit to the specialist has to be approved and it may be very difficult to get her in anytime soon. I'm praying we won't face that problem with this.
I want to thank you all for your continued prayers for her. She is a tough girl and deals better with pain than I do. She doesn't complain unless it gets real severe (which it has been at times). All of your comments of encouragement and letting me know you are continuing to pray is a true blessing. I'll be keeping you all updated as things go along.
Thank you again and may God bless each of you!! You all are such a blessing to me.
