Another Trek to Emerge

Yesterday sure brought trials our way.  Suddenly in the afternoon Jacob started crying/screaming.  There was nothing obvious what caused him to be so irate.  After close observation, I decided to take him to emerge because he seemed to be favouring his right leg.  It makes things so difficult when he can't indicate what's hurting him.  At Emerge, they took x-rays of his pelvis and legs, but all came back with a positive report.  Bizarre.  It's the life we have with Jacob.  We often face the reality of the unknown. 

When he's in pain, like yesterday, it truly breaks our hearts to see him suffer to such an extreme.  The poor boy.
His evening and night were OK, but he sure still isn't himself yet.  He's off to respite this afternoon.  I don't want him gone when he's not himself, but on the other hand, it's great to have such skilled eyes on him.  The doctor and nurses there are extremely knowledgeable with these kiddos.

We covet your prayers as we continue down this path, which God has so perfectly laid out for us.
