Please Pray..

It has been a difficult two days. Yesterday Ky woke up with a 102 temp and I stayed home to be with my little men. I just hate it when they aren't feeling well. Needless to say we spent a lot of time cuddling on the couch watching movies and resting. It was really wonderful to spend extra time with Noah while Ky was sleeping. His fever hasn't broken yet so I am going to stay home today as well. Yeah for long weekends! My house is almost completely clean...which means a restful weekend.

My mom has been sick for almost a year. Almost a year ago she started to get very bloated in her stomach and was feeling a lot of pain. We spent the better half of two months meeting with many different specialists and she went through every test in the book. The results...they said she had become lactose intolerant, had an enlarged uterus (but not large enough to do surgery), and a cyst on her ovary. Since then my mom has completely changed her diet and no longer eats/drinks anything with milk or wheat products in it. Unfortunately she hasn't gotten better and continues to be in pain daily. This has been extremely frustrating for as the doctors kept telling her they tested everything and to come back for a recheck in 6 months. She has often felt like she is going crazy because of the fact that she still feels horrible but that the doctors couldn't determine what else is wrong with her. Prior to getting sick my mom is probaly one of the most active women I know. She is a single mom of 6 kids, four of whom lived at home with her until recently when two moved to FL to go to school. She would get up at 4:30 every day workout, take my siblings to school, work, and take care of everything for everyone. Now she is lucky if she can do the bare minimum withought being couched. She went back to the doctors last week for more tests and to meet with a different doctor. Yesterday she received a letter stating the ultrasound they did came back abnormal. They got her in the hospital for more testing today and stated to her that her cervix is abnormal. I'm not sure what they are going to find out, but I will be honest with you that I am scared. When this all started months ago my fear was that she either had uteran cancer or cervical cancer. This past month has been really hard for her, her health problems aside. Three of my younger sisters are all having a lot of issues and my mom has been drained trying to take care of them and make sure they are ok. This just seems like the cherry on top for her. After she called me yesterday I began cleaning like a crazy person, because this is what I do when I get upset or nervous. I have been praying non stop and begging God to protect her and heal her. I'm selfish and don't want anything to happen to her. I'm trying to think positive but my gut tells me there is something really wrong. I hope my gut is wrong and it's something surgery can fix. Please pray for her today. She doesn't want to tell any of my siblings until she knows for sure what's wrong. I know our God is a bigger God then all of this, yet this is a prime example of when I struggle to just let go. Her appt is at 11:00 CST. Hopefully they will receive the test results rather quickly. I appreciate all of your prayers.

Definitely praying for your mom. I hope they can find what it is, so that she can begin the road to fixing it.
