Literally, right after I posted last night Madison started getting sick. She went over 12 hours without peeing, started to run a fever, pain was intolerable, and vomiting was persistent.
Madison finally at 3pm-5pm today found some comfort with a stronger pain med. The surgeon and Madison's team of doctors are surprised about the amount of pain she is in from this procedure. The surgery on top of the existing GVH in her gut has resulted in pain.
I struggled with this procedure even though it was suppose to be an in and out deal. Again, I'm shown that I'm Madison's mom for a reason and if my "motherly instinct" doesn't feel right about something I need to act on it.
Last night, I felt as if Madison and I got to the top of one mountain just to find another one. I know we can climb any mountain God puts before us, but I also know he will be holding us for awhile before we start climbing again.
Madison's pain has returned this evening. Please pray for healing and rest.
Just be Held is a song that sums up where we are in this season. We have been holding on and now God will hold us.
I planned to do a video blog, but the emotions from the day have resulted in the return of a severe migraine. I need to spend time on my knees and then get to bed so I can be the mom Madison needs me to be... Sending love and prayers to you all tonight especially those that need God to hold them.
