My youngest son has been having intestinal problems – mainly pain located in the right middle quadrant of his abdomen.
He’s pretty much diagnosed himself with a ventral hernia because every time there’s pain, a little alien pops out of his abdomen and announces itself.
My son was in the E.R. the other night, getting it checked out and they found nothing.
But they did an ultrasound.
My son was hoping that the ultrasound tech would turn to him and say, “Well, it looks like you’re having a girl. . .” but no such luck.
The tech obviously did not have the same sense of humor as my son.
Anyway, analysis of the ultrasound has turned up “sludge” in my son’s liver.
I’m not exactly sure what “sludge” is but it’s not good because my son now needs to go in for more tests.
Theoretically, this could mean he has gall bladder problems that haven’t coalesced into gall stones.
That’s the good scenario.
In any case, I’m not much of one for prayers, but I’m asking for a little help here.
Send good thoughts our way and pray for a simple resolution to this health scare.
He’s an amazing kid and I want him to be happy and healthy and enjoying his life, not worrying about surgery, illness, or abdominal pain.
My mom’s not doing too great either with a possible breast cancer scare and so things are tense at the house as we wait for medical results to come in.
Good thoughts, all around!
