ON A DAY LIKE THIS......

Have you ever heard the children's song, "On a Day like this, O Lord help me!" ? Because today was totally one of those days! lol :) Caleb had gone to see Dr. Gardial on Friday because he had a fever, was nauseous,had a bad headache, and was dizzy. Dr. Gardial couldn't figure out what was wrong with him so he gave him medicine for his nausea and told him to take ibuprofen or tylonel for his fever. He said if he got worse instead of better to come back in. So, today we went back in! Over the weekend he got even more nauseous,still had a headache, and his fever wouldn't go away... Dr. Gardial did some more bloodwork, and wanted to admit him to the hospital! yay... He said he wanted to do a spinal tap to see if Caleb had syphyllus or meningitis....so he sent him to the ER to Dr. Grisham. So our friend Roger drove us to the ER, and we sat there for about an hour waiting to see Dr. Grisham. Finally we got to see her, and she said it sounded like tick fever, not the other two things that Dr. Gardial thought, so she didn't do a spinal tap. Instead she started from scratch and ran every test under the sun except for a pregnancy test! lol :) They had an IV in his arm...they gave him a whole bag of stuff to hydrate him and then they gave him two different antibiotics. He had more blood taken, he had a CT scan, an Xray, and an Ultrasound... They said his Liver and his Spleen were enlarged, and they weren't sure why...so they told him to take it easy the next few days and gave him an antibiotic for his fever and medicine for his headaches...and we got to go home! finally! We started out the morning with a 10:00am appt. with Dr. Gardial, and got home around 6:30pm.....but Praise the Lord we finally made it home! :) and Praise the Lord for friends like Roger, Vanessa, and Katie! Vanessa gave us a ride to Dr. Gardial's office this morning because Caleb was too dizzy to drive, Roger drove us to the ER and stayed with us for a couple of hours, and Katie made sure I had some lunch and dinner and took us home from the ER and to Walmart to get his prescriptions filled! Thanks!!!! So please pray for Caleb that this medicine will make him all better within the next few days, and that the Lord will provide a way to help us financially.... Thanks! Love Y'all!
