Prayers For My Baby...and Mama, Too
I have this picture of Mai on my desk to remind me when things are getting a little crazy around here that she is still my little baby. I can actually smell her sweet baby smell just by looking at this picture! It's so hard to have the memories of them being so little and cuddly slipping away from me. Now they are big and fortunately still cuddly, but as I was sleeping with Mai in her bed last night and her legs went half way down mine, I felt like they are growing up way too fast.
My friends, please keep Mai in your prayers. She's been having bad headaches for several months and we haven't figured what is going on yet. They did a CT of her head/sinuses right before Christmas and decided to put her on anti-biotics for two weeks which did nothing to help her headaches. Then they did blood and urine tests and the urine showed high bun level so she had a kidney ultrasound yesterday. Her MRI was r/s from this week to next Wednesday due to equipment problems and her headaches continue to get worse.
For the most part, I've just been putting my fears and worries into God's hands but I googled "headaches and elevated bun" night before last and the first article that popped up was lead poisoning and since then I've just been wrecked thinking about different scenarios. Of course, her doctor was out of the office yesterday, so I couldn't talk to her to even find out if they did a lead test with her blood. Now with the MRI being put off, I'm scared it's a tumor. My imagination is running wild and I guess I could use a prayer or two myself. Please say a prayer for Mai that she'll find some relief from her headaches and that the doctors will figure out what is going on. Thank you so much!
