Isabelle Update

Paper 016

Isabelle had her yearly check-up today.  She’s been having lots of back pain lately which is a new thing for her.  Since I have rheumatoid arthritis, our doctor is very suspicious that this may be the source of all Belle’s joint pain and her delays.  On top of finding an orthopedic pediatric specialist, we are now setting up an appointment with a juvenile rheumatoid arthritis doctor.  Pray for Belle’s Mommy, (that would be me).  I am NOT a crier at all, but when Belle tells me she hurts, I am one step away from losing it.  (Mostly because we don’t know the source of her pain.)

Again, I have to make this disclaimer every time, but don’t send me any prayer cloths, anointing oil, or Holy water.  I don’t need your Grandma’s recipe for what cures all her ailments, or your really friendly advice on what you think we should do.  I just need you to pray for Belle and her doctors, that they would be able to help her.  Thanks so much.

  1. Just last night I was thinking of writing you to check in on Belle. And then today here is a post with an update 🙂
    I’ll continue to pray for Belle, you, Rob and the doctors.

    I, too, was just thinking about your RA and now I will not only continue to pray for you and your health but for Belle’s too and for the emotional side of it all. Our family really cares about your family:)

    one of these days you’ll forget to add your disclaimer and I’ll finally get to tell you about my snake handling remedies…sigh…

    You have it Michelle! Prayer after all is the most powerful. I will be praying for you and Belle. Moms (and grandmas) always feel the pain of our children (and grandchildren).

    Still praying for you both. I know what it feels like when your precious little one is ill or hurting. I’m sorry.
