To contact the Dr. or not, that is the question of the day?

As I mentioned in my last post Luke has been battling something for a few days now. I'm debating today whether I should contact his Pediatrician. He has been coughing out yellow gunk for a few days now and been kind of lethargic, but has not been battling a high fever or high heart rate. He has been on oxygen at night and has desatted a few times, way to low for my liking. I will never, ever get used to seeing my son's oxygen number drop down into the 60's, even if it is just for a few seconds.

What would you do if you were me??? Would you contact the Dr.? Give Luke another day to see how he does? There are days that decisions regarding Luke's health are so complicated and hard. I know that Luke needs prayer and know that God could reach down His Healing Hand right now and touch Him, that is what I'm hoping and believing for today. Would you join with me in prayer for God to touch Luke and Amy who is also battling with a horrible cough today?

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Suzi

Sue, I am holding you and Luke up in prayer today (also praying for Amy for her cough). I just read back thru your recent blogs, and I can feel your love for your family. Of course, I have always witnessed that. As one mother to another, I sometimes can't even imagine going thru what you go thru on a daily basis. The sorrows and the joys, and struggles and frustrations. but I know sometimes God gives you a glimpse of precious Luke, the one you knew before his accident. I think it's a miracle in itself that he is smiling. I think about where he was right after the accident and where he is now, and I know God is healing him. Hold tight to the promise. I often think back to the day we got the phone call about Luke. I remember every single moment. We were celebrating Sarah's birthday. I remember dropping to my knees, before heading out to tell my mom and the rest of the family. I remember getting the call that Luke had a heartbeat and was breathing. He's just come so far! I can understand how sometimes it would be easy to start to slip and question God. I know there have been moments that I have doubted (I'm sorry!).. but then God gives me this vision of Luke, of him "whole" and standing and smiling. I know I have heard others who have seen this too. I hold tight to that vision. I truly do believe God is going to keep that promise. I wish we knew the timing, but we just have to keep being patient and trusting God.

I wish I had advice for you about whether to take Luke in or not. But please know that I am praying still. Praying for healing, always. and praying for wisdom and strength for the rest of you. You and your family are thought of often. You have a ton of prayer warriors out there. some more silent than others, but always remember that. (((Hugs))) to you my friend.

Sue,
We are promised in James:"if any of you lacks wisdom let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him."
Praying for God's wisdom to answer your question and for His healing for Luke and Amy!
Susan

I would follow my gut, Sue. Everytime I have ignored my gut feeling about my children's health, it has ended up that I should have taken them in. Especially with your pending trip it would be beneficial to get him on the road to recovery well in advance...if in fact he needs care.

Will keep you all in my prayers. I don't know you but can tell from your posts and the comments from those that love you very much (like Teresa above)that your faith, your strength, and your never-ending devotion to your family is unlike that of anyone I know. God's continuous blessings to you!

Gut feel is good because it relies on the heart.

Still praying for Luke but I would honestly take him in. My little one just had a bout with pneumonia yet never ran a fever. The doctors sent her for an x-ray due to her cough not getting better as well as her starting to complain of chest pain and it was found on the x-ray. Poor girl ended up on 2 antibiotics plus 2 medicines in her nebulizer and then 2 rounds of steroids.

I hope Luke is feeling better very soon.

It's so hard to know what to do sometimes when they are sick! Praying that God will guide you and for healing for Luke and Amy.

I KNOW THIS FEELING!~ I always fear calling cause they ALWAYS send us to ER then it turns to 2 weeks in the hospital trying to figure out what is going on. I am praying for him and that God will give you the push to take him in if he thinks he needs it. Luke is a cutie pie!!!!! Hang in there! THanks for checking on us! Thanks for the comment on my music too. Every song and every lyric reminds me of my daily life and walk with God.
