I just received an email from sweet friends that are in Cincinnati right now for testing with their 4yr. old son "S". He has the same medical needs as Solomon...they came home with him just as we were leaving for China.
We are calling all prayer warriors...they have just discovered that their precious son actually only has 1 kidney and that kidney is "in the last stages before complete renal failure. There is a number we are following-30. This is where he is now. Renal failure and dialysis start at 30. Healthy people are between 90-120. Of course I asked about transplants and the answer is no. He is not healing enough to get one, and his body will soon reject. If his numbers can be maintained perhaps in a few years..."
This beautiful families loves the Lord and is pleading with our God to heal their sweet babe.
I would be lying if I said this news didn't upset me...in fact, it made me ill & worry for their sweet "S" and our precious Solomon. We knew this could be a possibility for Solomon...we've seen this with several other kiddos with this same birth defect. We have prayed and hoped for the best diagnosis for Solomon but he is completely in the Lord's hands. But my mama's heart is worried...plain & simply worried...worried for our son and worried for our friends son. But don't let my worry fool you ;P In my worry, I do COMPLETELY TRUST my God...the Creator of all things...the Creator of my baby boy!
There are several complications that come with this special medical need...tethered spinal cord, kidney issues, etc. All needs that we have prayed the Lord would protect Solomon from. The testing we will go through in the Cincinnati in early February will help answer a lot of questions.
Would you please join us in praying for God's complete healing for "S" and guidance for his family...for peace as they wait to see all that the Lord has planned for their son?? Thank you so much!!!!
