prayers for little sister, please!

Little Sister is having a birthday on Saturday! She is getting the world's worst birthday present: a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy. I'm just glad she's too young to remember.

She has been seeing a pediatric GI doctor for her chronic diarrhea problems and they haven't been able to find anything wrong with the blood and stool tests. She is having the procedures done tomorrow morning. I haven't been very stressed about it because I'm a "last minute stresser" and the last minute seems to be starting. I'm not very stressed about the tests, but I am stressed about the anesthesia. She's so little!

Next on the list for birthday celebrations....immunizations next Tuesday! The poor girl can't win.

Oh my goodness! She's gonna be TICKED when she finds out she got a colonoscopy and Big Brother got to go see Monster Trucks!
And how scary. I'll definitely be keeping you and Little Sister in my thoughts and prayers. Be sure to let us know how it goes as soon as you can! HUGS

I love you guys and always pray for you and your family, but I will send a special one out for little sister. We need to talk and I can't get a hold of you. Stop with the phone tag already.

Can your son come over to play during Little Sister's scopes? My kids are on a break and Bud would love to have him over for a while.

I hope everything turns out ok for her, and she's definitely in my prayers tonight.

Carter got to have one of those too and some other stressful-for-mommy stuff. The good news is that it wasn't as hard on him as I'd feared. Once we had a diagnosis, life was much easier. My dd had toddler diarreah that made me crazy and caused horrible UTIs and some kidney problems and then just went away on it's own one day. The things we have to worry about. Sending wishes for things to go smoothly and for you to get some answers. Maclaine
