prayer request


This is what my sweet boy has looked like for the past 3 days. He is not doing well, friends. The scary part is that we don't know what is wrong with him. He has no obvious symptoms other than sleeping in until 1pm. If you know Bubba than you know that this is very out of character for him. When he is awake he is lethargic and "out of it." He will be awake for 20 minutes and then crash. We had a very scary moment on Monday, I wont go into the crummy details, but I thought I was going to have to give my baby CPR. This morning we had the same problem of him not wanting to wake up. His doctor felt that we needed to bring him in for blood work to try to figure out what is going on with him. After loosing and then finding his labs we still don't know much. We do know that it is not bacterial so that is good. We do know that it is viral. They are worried since he is not showing any other viral symptoms other than be lethargic. There is a bad virus that TTD kids have a hard time fighting, we are praying that this is not what we are dealing with. If Bubba is not better by morning he will be admitted for more tests to try to figure out what is going on so that they can help him. They have done all that they can to keep him out of the hospital, it's not a good place for him to be. So, here is where I need your help my friends. Please pray for my baby. Please pray for help and understanding for his doctors. TTD is rare {less than 100 in the world rare} and they are not sure what to do with him. Please pray for my sweet Regan. I walked into the bedroom this morning and she and Stanley were in bed with Bubba and Regan said "Mommy, Stanley and I just said a prayer for Bubba... he'll be ok right???" My heart hurts for her as well. Thank you my friends. I am praying that he will be back to his sweet happy self in the morning and I can continue with fun, happy Christmas posts but until then I need your prayers.
