Praise God!! Prayers work!


(Kirk is the blonde!)
If you prayed for my son, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Last night we went to church and an older lady there looked at his leg and told me she thought it was a blood clot. I thought she was crazy, because he is so young. When I took him to the ER today, the doctor came in and looked at his leg. He said "I have never seen this in a child. I think it may be a blood clot." My heart broke, I was scared to death. I know that blood clots can kill you, and I couldn't bare to lose my child. I couldn't cry I couldn't show any emotion at all because I did not want to scare him to death. He ordered numerous tests. They did a lot of blood work, they checked potassium, infection, everything. They also did this test on him that would show blood clots through blood work. They did an ultrasound on his leg. They did x-rays. I could not go in with him when he had his x-rays so I had a good time to pray. I cried as I prayed for my child. I still cry when I think about it. I had no where else to turn. I sent a text to my mom, i sent one to my brothers gf and asked them to pray for him as well. We waited about an hour on the test results. The blood work was normal, the ultrasound was normal and he doesn't have any broken bones. The doctor said that he has no idea what it could be. He gave him some pain meds and sent him home with no gym for a week and no school today. He told me if it doesnt get better he needs to be seen again. The doctor also made it a point to tell me again that he has never ordered an ultrasound for a blood clot on a child that young and he really thought that it was a clot. Since nothing showed up and he has no pulled muscles, I am thinking that my child did in fact have one, but God smiled touched him sometime before the tests were ran and healed my baby. What ever it was I praise God that nothing is there now and again I want to thank you all for praying for Kirkland! Please keep him in your prayers as he is still not up and moving like he used to and is still in some pain.

Also please see my blog below because I have some valentines for you all!

I'm so sorry to hear about your son. I will be praying for him and for you. A mother's heart breaks when her child is hurt or ill. I know exactly what you are feeling. I almost lost my daughter when she was six months old. Now I worry about the boys.

Please drop over to my Writing Nook when you have time and pick up one of the Valentine's for my friends. There are also a couple of awards for friends there. Feel free to help yourself.

Blessings and love,
