Carter has had a tough day today. He has spent most of the day and last night dealing with pain issues. He is receiving pain medication, although it does not always seem to help. Thankfully he has slept most of the day, every time he wakes up he cries out in pain. It was not until this afternoon that he woke up without crying, so hopefully we are on the right track and the pain will soon subside. Carter went for a barium study to make sure his J tube was in the correct place today. It was in the right place and if Carter's pain is under control tomorrow we will start trying to feed him through the tube.
It's the times like this that make me so grateful to have Carter. It makes me grateful for the good days, the days Carter gets to crawl all over the house and chase our dogs. I know to some this may sound a little crazy but, all in all I am thankful God chose Carter to have OEIS Complex. I could not imagine another child, a child without support going through all of these things. It breaks my heart to think that there are children going through things similar to this, without a Mommy laying beside them giving them kisses and telling them how strong and how loved they are. Carter is strong and has so many people praying for him, people I do not even know. The power of prayer is awesome and I know that is how Carter has came this far. The scripture says God answered the prayers, not of the sick and dying but of the friends of the sick or dying. I know that even through this extremely tough day God has a plan and your prayers are working, so please keep them coming!
Here are a few pictures from the afternoon, when Carter woke up feeling a little better.
I think I see a little smile!
Laying with his friends, Bob and Larry!
