Here. I am awake thinking of this…our son. He woke again in the night, crying, with leg pain. We have been to the doctor, we have prayed, we had done the blood work. This mom intuition tells you something is wrong. My child is not well.
I’ve always told other moms to trust their “mommy intuition.” As a speech therapist I know early intervention is key to helping children unlock their communication potential. Our son Bryan was one of those who needed early intervention. I was the mom. I didn’t want to be the speech therapist. We got early intervention, found out he had fluid in his ears, ear tubes, viola, more talking.
Now, he seems healthy…not sickly. But, his height has been declining in percentile rank. His Body Mass Index (BMI) is normal. The pediatricians aren’t worried. But this mom is. We saw a nutritionist. She was concerned. Our picky carb loving son wasn’t getting enough calories. We boost that. We wait. Leg pain. Blood work. Low Iron. Time.
Leg pain is back. I ask for your prayers. Here. We moms lay awake at night praying for our children, snuggling them when they are sick, and much of the world sleeps. I’m grateful for social that I could hop on Facebook and TWO other mom friends were right there with me at 2 a.m. talking with me. He speaks to my heart too. He says…
May God reveal to you His constant presence. He has promised to never ever forsake you (Heb. 13:5).
p.s. Thank you @Soulstops
