Another Prayer Request and Update

Thanks to everyone who lifted up prayers for Jordan last week. He is back home and slowly adding foods to his diet. He won't return to work for awhile, but he is out of the woods.

I am now asking for prayers for my son, Robert. He has been sick for awhile and has missed a lot of school. His symptoms are peristent nausea and severe bowel irregularities. Life has virtually stopped for him. He's been to the doctor 5 times in the last four weeks and undergone many tests. Next week, he is to see a gastroenterologist. I am praying for an accurate diagnosis, so find a treatment that will work. Any prayers you could offer up for Robert would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry that I haven't been able to visit many blogs recently. Robert is lying down, playing on the computer a lot, which means that I don't get to get on it very often.

I will be back around to visit blogs again this evening sometime.

Thank you again for your prayers.
Elizabeth

I'm so glad to hear the young husband is on his way to recovery. Such, such good news. I have put your son on my prayer list, and hope that he is diagnosed accurately and soon!

So sorry Robert is having those type of problems. It sounds like he is going to see the right type of of doctor though.
I started with Crohns in Jr High School. There are so many treatments.
Is his name on the prayer roll at the temple?

Hugs~♥

Robert is and has been in our prayers. Thanks to all for the prayers for Jordan! He and Emily felt the support.

How did I not know about this? That is so horrible. He is so tough, I've never known him to be ill. That is so frustrating - not knowing what you have or how to fix it. We will be thinking of him. I just sent you a message on FB about Willow's party, but I would totally understand if you were unable to come.

Prayers offered up! I had a similar problem for a few months, then it mysteriously disappeared! But not before I had a endoscopy. Yuck.
