As I am getting ready to start my day, I am feeling extremely thankful it is Friday.
It has been a long two weeks of doctor appointments. We had three last week. We had three this week and we have three next week. Next week will be a little bit different than these past two because all three appointments will be in one day. Now that will be loads of fun, but at the end of day, they will be all done and it will take only one day and not what feels like all week.
As Kiddo and I were talking yesterday, we were talking about how tired we were. She battles so much in her life and gets tired so easily, but tries to live a “normal” life as best as she can.
It broke my heart as we sat at one of her appointments yesterday and she took a picture of her feet to post on Instagram about waiting on an appointment that she knows is going to make her physically sick by the end of the day. This poor kid’s body has waged war on itself.
As a mom, I just sit back helplessly watching all of this happen with no “real” answers. The only thing the doctors do is treat her for what is wrong, but they can not answer the “why” this is wrong. They treat her reactively, but I am thinking, is there a way after two and a half years, that they can change her treatment plan to treat her proactively now?
She has some appointments coming up and I am compiling my thoughts to see if we can get somewhere with this new method so Kiddo can get her life together and move forward. She needs to start taking college classes so her adult life can be productive and successful while she continues to battle this insanity.
If you feel compelled to send God some prayers for wisdom and direction about these appointments coming up in the next two weeks, I would be so appreciative.
This morning I felt the need to clear my mind and I decided to release them here so I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing today is free of doctors.
I pride myself by not hiding behind the walls of deception, which is so easy to do when you write in an open forum. It is my desire to write openly with the hopes of helping others through our difficulties.
It is my prayer if you are going through a difficult time that today that you will feel you are not alone. It is my desire you find the time in your day to breathe in and exhale while feeling a sense of strength and peace take over your mind and body.
Hugs to those of you who are struggling with circumstances that have you weighed down.
Remember the most important key to survival and this is that God is walking with you and has not left you or forsaken you. You are not alone.
Lastly, remember… “You are braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” A.A. Milne

TGIF! Enjoy your Friday!
