Comments: New Things to Worry About

How worrisome to have no reason. The little one will be in our prayers until the cause is ascertained. Please keep me updated.
I could not let go, though handing it over to God was oh so helpful while Squink was in NICU, it was the peace I needed to be in that hospital area... which still haunts me.

Good things come in small packages. (He said, self-absorbedly. Not that I've ever been as small as the waifish Mr. Curmudgeonry).

Seriously though, all will be well. I am confident of it. And how jealous am I of your trip to England! Can't believe you're wondering how to homeschool. The whole thing is educational!

He looks perfectly normal to me.

Elise is the same size at 18 months, but then again, no one seems to worry about a petite girl.

My pediatrician said, "There are very few health risks to being underweight."

While I will say it is possible there's something up with the boy, and I pray that's not true, I will point something out.

After seven years in the health care industry, I've discovered one very important fact: Doctors are not the smartest people around. Go ahead and get the tests, but if he eats and seems healthy, chances are everything is fine.

Just remember - when one of the docs says it's bubonic plague, there's a better than even chance he's just covering his derrière.

Praying that everything turns out alright. Hang in there! You have a lot on your plate.

I hope that it is celiac and not CF, but it is not the end of the world if it is CF. Just worrying.

I'll keep you and your boy in my thoughts this weekend.
