A Simple Thank You

Hello friends, today I have a simple thank you card that I created and an explanation for not posting here on my blog.  I've been missing in action for almost two weeks now and I apologise for just dropping off and not posting an answer for my absents. 
Our youngest son who is four years old has been going through some medical problems.  He has had stomach pains for the last six weeks which make him double over in pain and this is the second bout of having these types of pains so we took him to a GI specialist and he has been going through a number of different test with no answers.  So as you can imagine my mind has been distracted and worried thinking of the unknown.  After having to put our poor little guy through everything from blood work, ultrasound, upper GI test with x-rays and now yesterday a stomach scoping we wish we would find the answer to his pain.  Last week after we received the results of his ultrasound where everything came back normal other than the "new finding" as the doctor put it that his left kidney is not functioning properly.  Yesterday before the stomach scoping we had an appointment with a pediatric kidney specialist who told us that he thought our son's kidney problem was moderate and that we needed to take him for testing to see exactly how his kidney is functioning.  I'm grateful that if my son has a problem with his kidney that we found it now instead of finding it damaged later because of this problem but its all still very scary.  What ever the findings are with our son I pray that it can be fixed or controlled with medication.

Supplies: Love Birds & die, Fillable Frames #5 - PTI, So Saffron DSP, Ribbon, Polka Dot Impressions Folder, Foam tape.  Colors: Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, So Saffron.

Thank You for stopping by!

(((Lynn))) sending big hugs to you all! I know how scary a situation can be with our children. I'm happy to see that all the test are being done, as they should. It's not easy seeing them go through anything but like you said, it's better they find it now. I hope all works out and he won't be in so much pain. Please know I'm thinking of you!!!
