A Weekend at the Hospital = Zero Fun

Two hospital visits were NOT what I had planned for this weekend!

But fo' real!  Who plans that kind of thing? 

Um, not normal people.

On a good day, I like to consider myself normal.

My siblings would probably disagree.......... but their vote doesn't count.

Normal people take their children to the ER when they start exhibiting unusual symptoms.

And so that is what we did.

The ER doctor at a local children's hospital was very attentive & thorough & listened to everything this crazy Mommy had to say, but ultimately he sent us home saying that he thought everything was gonna be fine.  Only telling us to come back if his symptoms persisted or worsened.

Unfortunately, that's what happened today.

Walker's symptoms persisted & even seemed to worsen.

Fearing the worst, we took him to Urgent Care.

That doctor was THE WORST!  Rude, rude, rude!  Bascially telling us that who knows what's wrong with our kid.  Since he was "adopted internationally" a million things could be wrong......... a million things he had no idea about, so we should go on home.  {while I believe there was probably some wisdom & truth hidden underneath the long list of asinine things he said.......... there's a better way to say it, buddy!}

So, we start off this week with a BANG........... making doctor appointments, getting blood drawn, & all that jazz!

Fun, fun, fun!

Don't be jealous!!!

ps - I am scared to death!  We don't really know what's wrong with him.  I don't *think* it's very serious, but I'm not a medical professional!  In spite of our fears, we cast our cares on the Lord, & trust in His goodness & love!
pps - Your prayers would be much appreciated!
Psalm 73:28  "But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works."


  1. He will be fine as you put all your trust in God nothing wavering.

  2. Report that doctor but take care of your sweet son first! Praying for you and Walker!

    1. Thank you, Michelle! I wish someone would report that doc, but this momma is to tired to do that right now. :) Thank you for your prayers!

  3. Praying for you all and for the right doctors to help you determine what is going on. Love to you all!

  4. Praying that God will ease your fears and will lead you guys to a correct diagnosis and treatment.

  5. Look at that awesome smile! Walker knows you and rhe hubs love him and are taking excellent care of him. Y'all are in my thoughts and prayers... even the assine doctor.
