I went with Option #3 and I'm so glad I did, Luke has pneumonia again:-/

After much thought and wavering on my decision, I finally decided to go with Option #3, cancelled Luke's Dentist appointment and didn't take him to HBOT. I also e-mailed his Pediatrician who just happened to be out of the office that day, but the nurse called to set up an appointment for me to take him in today.
I almost cancelled his appointment and when I got to the Dr.'s office was kicking myself for wasting the time to take him in, but I'm glad I didn't cancel the appointment. Dr. G decided that I should get an x-ray of Luke's lungs to be sure he wasn't dealing with pneumonia, I was so close to talking him out of it, but am glad I didn't. The Dr. looked at the x-ray in his office and told me that it didn't look like pneumonia to him and as I looked at it I didn't think it looked that way to me either. But after getting home I got a call from his Dr. saying the radiologist said that, yes it's pneumonia, ERK! Thankfully Gordy was out running some errands so he was able to go pick up his antibiotic. This is the first time since December Luke has pneumonia, yes I am thankful that he's hasn't had it in a few months, at the same time I'm so bummed that he has it now.

I was getting ready to feed 7 boys dinner when the call came in from the Dr. Isaiah who happens to be turning 13 next weekend had some friends over for a birthday celebration, which after dinner I took them skating. We had a blast skating, what a blessing it was to be able to just go have some fun with the boys tonight, it was just the right thing to get my mind off the disappointing news I got earlier in the day.
Here are the guys being silly as they wait in line to go skating:-)
Luke does seem to be doing better tonight, he has only alarmed a few times since I've been home from the skating rink. I better head to bed as I will need to be up at a decent time in the morning to feed all the boys staying over tonight:-)

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

See-God told you exactly what to do. I am so sorry that Luke has pneumonia again, but I am so glad you're his mommy! I think Isaiah is, too. :-)

I'll be praying for Luke, and you, and your whole family: strength, healing, peace and...more strength.

Love you,
