The Tests Begin
Well.. Valentine’s Day is upon us. We celebrated Valentine’s Day tonight, a night early, with our kiddos, as much as a terrified family can celebrate Valentine’s Day. We had a family dinner, provided by a sweet friend, then let the kids open their treats. This was all after we made a mad dash packing the kid’s things to disperse them among other sweet friends so we can go do these awful scans with our little guy.
Just as we were frantically getting it all together, I look out the window to see Chad watching the boys wrestle, kick, fight and laugh out on our trampoline, just as brothers do. Clayton is having a ball, completely unknowing of what lies ahead for him. He’s confused. He keeps getting presents and cards and phone calls. He’s thinking its pretty cool. Precious, unknowing, gorgeous boy.
So, tomorrow, February 14, Valentine’s Day 2012 here is what we face. In other words, here are our prayer points.
8:30- CT Scan of the chest
9:30- Dye will be put in Clayton
1:00- Bone Scan
Following those procedures, sometime later on Tuesday or Wednesday they will also do a scan of the head and neck and also an MRI.
Friday at 7:45- Bone Marrow test and Spinal Tap
As far as the in between times, we’re just not sure.
Please pray for grace and mercy on Clayton. He is pure and blameless and undeserving of the discomfort these things are going to bring him. Breaks a Mom and Dads heart.
Please also pray for our other kids as they are with friends and scared of the unknown as well.
We are trusting God for clean scans and only pictures of our healthy little boy.
