Just quick update on Lucas, for those of you who are wanting to know. He is doing slightly better. By that I mean, he is making it to school more often than he did in october & November, but not by a lot. He definately seems to be having more good days than he was, though.
We still do not know anything concrete. All of the doctors who have been working on his case had a meeting at Children's Hospital last Friday to review all of his tests & scans & confer with each other. I haven't really heard anything much about it, though. So far, they have nothing new to tell me.
On Wednesday, I am taking him to Children's to have an endoscopy. If that comes back negative, then they will be sending him for a psycological evaluation to see if he pain stems from somthing emotional. All of the Doctors have expressed to me that they belive he is having very real severe pain, and that the cause of the pain may very well be from an actual physical condition but that the physical condition causing his pain might have been caused by stress.
All I can do at this point is wait and see what the test results show next week. In the meantime, please keep praying!
Oh- something I forgot to mention in my pinecone ball post, below- once you have the pieces cut & folded, pinning them onto the ball to make the ornamnet is perfect activity for sitting in hospital waiting rooms- or even just while watching tv, for those of you who don't spend your days running frm doctor to diagnostic testing facility to hospital ;)
Thanks again for all of your prayes & concerns for Lucas- we most definately appreciate it!
