Something to Praise and Pray about

We got some poop last night around 11. Sara has needed some help to get it out. None since then. Her bowel sounds are still good, just no merchandise.

What the doc is trying to figure out is - is Sara just irregular and what all do we have to do to help her stay normal. This is something we have already been through with Emma Grace, we get that and know how to deal with it.

The doc is concerned it might be more serious. She could be lacking some nerve cells around the rectum that trigger the release mechanism. She would have to see a pediatric gastrointestinal specialist in Shreveport to look at that and recommend treat which could include surgery. Is this related to her brain bleeds and infarctions? Don't know. It is something fixable, it's just going to take time to observe. That is - time in our favorite place - the hospital. Please pray they would know soon and we could get on the road to resolving this. Please pray for Jennifer and I to have strength, wisdom, patience, and peace. Thanks
