Cranky Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 3:05 pm

The spinal tap went well yesterday.  Praise the Lord!  His spinal fluid is still cancer-free and he sedated just enough for them to get the job done.  He was a little sleepy yesterday, but generally happy and in good spirits.

Today, a different story.  He’s been miserable all. day. long.  This morning he would scream if I wasn’t holding him.  By this afternoon he was screaming even when I was holding him.  He hasn’t had a bowel movement today (and Jay and I can’t remember if he had one yesterday or not) so that might be causing him some pain.  Who knows!  There are definite advantages to going through this with a baby…like I don’t have to explain to him when we go in for a surgery or a procedures…and he’s too young to mourn the life he had before cancer.  But there are definite disadvantages too…and not being able to tell us what’s bothering him is certainly one of them.

The clinic advised us to take him to the ER if the agitation got worse and so I layed him down in his crib while I got all of the stuff ready to go and, of course, by the time I had our stuff together he had fallen asleep.  Jay will probably take Brock as soon as he wakes up while I take Jaycie to church tonight.  I would imagine they’ll want to do an abdominal xray to see if he has an obstruction.

– that he did so well for the LP (spinal tap) yesterday

Prayer Requests:
– that we’ll be able to figure out what’s bothering him and that it will be something that’s easy to correct


  1. Oh girl, I’m so hoping it’s something simple like the boy just needs to poo. 🙂 Prayers for the simple fix. Prayers for peaceful adjustment to the steroids. Prayers for restful sleep tonight. Hugs.
