I am up at 3:00 a.m. because I can't sleep. I am worried about my grouchy (but lovable) fourteen year old son. I spoke with his doctor yesterday and all the tests they did last week came back negative. They didn't see a stone, no infection, etc.. What is going on with this kid?

He definitely has some issues going on with his kidney's we just aren't sure what they are. The kidney specialist was suppose to review his chart and then get back with us asap. Through some sort of ridiculous red tape that has not happened yet, though I have been promised a call sometime today.

So, I in the meantime I am trying to stay off Web M.D. and make a diagnosis myself. That place is way to scary.

I am thankful that Tyler is not really feeling badly. He wanted to go to wrestling practice last night so we let him.

What is it about not knowing that is always so hard. I like to be in control. I like to steer the ship. My anxiety level is high. I'm really trying to give it to God. When will I ever learn that He is the one in control and not me?

Why can't I be more like her?

Content to make a big pot of "pretend soup".
Aww, the carefree days of childhood.
This little girl brings such joy to my life. She makes me smile every day. Even if she is a master trained mess maker. Do you see all the pots she is using? Definitely a chef in training.

Well, I'm off to see if I can get some sleep. We spent four hours at Chuck E' Cheese today so I should be exhausted. Yes, you heard me correctly. No, I do not need my head examined.

At least I don't think so............

If only I'd known someone else was up!!! I have been up for quite awhile. Look on WEB MD and check pain in back,lower left of head. Heating pad ,or ice is not helping.Grrr.
I hope they can find out what's wrong with Tyler,SOON!Seems like a lot of teen boys having trouble now days.

Four hours at Chuck E Cheese?? Wow. That'd be enough to drive me completely over the edge, without a doubt. That place brings out the crazy in me!

I've had at least 3 stones that didn't show up on x-rays, sonograms, or cat scans, but were found later during "exploratory surgery". Just because they can't find it, doesn't mean it isn't there.

I'll pray that if it is a stone, it passes soon...all on it's own. And if not, that they figure out the problem soon! Have they checked his kidney function levels? Are those okay?

Oh, I'm sorry about your boy and I TOTALLY understand your worrying -- don't look up things on the web! That's sure to make it worse. I learned that the hard way, even symptoms to the most minor things can seem horrible on those sites.

Anyway, I hope you get answers soon.

It is so hard to watch your child in pain, but even harder when you can't figure out what is exactly wrong.

Your girl is so sweet.

Faith like a child . . . yep, I long for it, too. Definitely stay away from WebMD!!!

Hope you have the answers you are seeking very soon.

You must stay off of Web MD. You wouldn't believe how many self diagnosed fatal illnesses I've had after web searches. The soup looks good by the way!
