Here is one of the many pictures I took when we went to see the tulip fields, they were gorgeous!
Yesterday was beautiful to, but not so fun. It started out early with making Luke's formula once again, I'm so thankful for Amy, Natalie, Lance, Jamison, Isaiah, Ezekiel and Lily for their help we got done in record time, woohoo! After that I went to get my nails done, they were looking pretty bad. Came home picked up Luke, Lily and Zeke to go for a walk around Lake Waughop. Gordy, Isaiah and Amy went to a Mexico Missions trip meeting, they are going down there in June. After taking the kids to the park we splurged and went to eat at McDonalds and I let the kids play on the toys for awhile, I got home put Luke to bed, gave Lily a bath, got the boys in bed and then I took off to the store to get a few things for Easter. There's my day in a nutshell.
While I was walking around the lake with the kids I got a call from Luke's pulmonologist with some bad news. He informed me that the Luke's chest CT showed that Luke does indeed have bronchiectasis, especially in his lower left lobe. It's so bad right now that it looks like it has pus and infection in there, which made me confused as to why Luke is doing so good right now, seems to me and the doc that he should be running constant fevers and being sick with the way his lungs look. He told me that he still thinks that the best thing for Luke will be to get a trache again, that eventually if he has lots of problems and pneumonia's they might want to look at taking out part of his lung, but they would definitely not do that unless Luke is trached. I was devastated to hear this news, but thankfully I've once again decided to turn it completely over to God. We do not have another appointment with this doctor until the end of July, I'm praying that over the next few months Luke will stay healthy and when we do go back in for that appt. we will be able to put off what would seem be inevitable trache procedure. He told me that Luke could die if he got another pneumonia, I think we already knew this to be true since we almost lost him when he had his last bad pneumonia in February.
I hope and pray that y'all have a wonderful Easter day, celebrating Jesus resurrection from the grave. What joy and great peace it brings to my life knowing that Jesus willingly died on the cross for me to be saved, He took painful stripes upon his back for us to be healed, He healed the sick and brought hope to the hopeless. PRAISE GOD, I'm thankful for the fact that when He went to heaven, He left the Holy Spirit to bring us power and comfort, without that I don't know where I would be today.
Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue
