Trying not to panic....

So we just heard back from the doctor a few minutes ago, Preston has the same intestinal infection that Sam did as an infant. The same infection that we couldn't get rid of, that we ended up hospitalized for multiple times, the same infection that led the doctors into thinking that there was something up with Sam's immune system. The on call doctor wanted to hospitalize us and send us into Boston Children's. But thankfully he called our primary and she said that we don't have to go that route right now. That Preston "looks" good, and his hydration is good, praise God that my breast milk has kept him hydrated this well. I really do know that God has got this all under control and that Preston will be ok. I know that God's plan is perfect, and that He sees beyond this bump in our road. I am also trying to remind myself that this could just be a nasty stomach infection, and nothing else..... That just because it "seems" the same as Sam, that it doesn't mean that it is. Again I quote from "Calm my anxious heart" by Linda Dillow: [ In Philipians 4:7 we see God's part in the contentment process. "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." The Living Bible suggests the the word and at the beginning of the verse means "if you do this." Do what? If we make the choice to pray instead of worry, we will be personally experience God's peace. What a promise! In a world of chaos, problems, heartache, and anxiety, all of us need peace.] I am making the choice tonight to bend my knees and pray for my baby. Please join me in prayer for wisdom for his doctors, and for us his parents to care for him the way God wants us to and for us to have wisdom in decision making, and most certainly for Preston, for rapid healing, for no pain in his belly, for God's will in his life.
