You didn't grow under my heart - but in it"

Can I borrow a knee?

Tonight I am asking for a knee, do you have one you can spare? Noah needs us. He had a reaction to his antibiotic. He has had diarrhea non stop for about 2 weeks. We are now changing his diapers about every 30 mins through the day and several times through the night. His diaper area has a fungus from the antibiotic as well. This is what it looks like:

We now have a cream the doctor prescribed that we can apply only 2x a day, problem is that when we put it on about 15 minutes later at most he poops and we have to change his diaper and wipe him. He spends most of the day sleeping and when he isnt sleeping he is screaming. He can not get comfortable. It's heartbreaking. I don't know how to fix this, God will help. So please join with in and pray for our boy.


Lord,

Thank you so much for Noah. Thank you for the miracles you have done in his life so far. I know he has a future and a hope Lord. I pray that you would take Noah's sickness away, heal his bum Lord. Touch him from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet. Take the infection out, the congestion, the diarrhea, the diaper rash and the pain from teething. I thank you for the healing that You will bring to my son. Help us Lord to have strength to care for him and get all that needs done, done. Let him be comfortable and bring him peace. Thank you for choosing me to be Noah's mommy and help me to always do what is best for him. Heal him tonight God. In Your name we pray, Amen.


Thank you all so much. I dont mean to complain I am just tired and cranky. We have dealt with a month or more of vomit everyday now this for the last 2 weeks. I know more people have it worse and if this is as bad as it ever gets we will be awesome. I hope this is not the start of a bad season. I am not use to sick kids.

Please as you pray for Noah continue to pray for the orphan crisis and it is a crisis. Today Trinity ask me what crisis meant because she was reading about it in history. I told her emergency, I am never good at definitions, but the orphan crisis is just that..an emergency. We need to be doing something more than blogging and praying about it. Like the song, if we are the body why arent his Why aren't His arms reaching
Why aren't His hands healing Why aren't His words teaching And if we are the Body Why aren't His feet going Why is His love not showing them there is a way There is a way.

Be blessed

  1. C-DIFF!!!!! Ask your pediatrician to test him for c-diff, especially since he's been on antibiotics. C-diff is one of the "bad" bacteria that naturally live in your colon. But sometimes a course of antibiotics, or frequent use of antibiotics, kills off too much of the good bacteria and the c-diff takes over. Angela had it a couple different times over the years and it is AWFUL! Their little rear ends just get burned raw from the acid. You can make a barrier by mixing a paste of maalox and aquaphor. The aquaphore is water soluble, and will absorb into the skin, but is the same texture and consistency as vaseline. The maalox will neutralize the acid from the stools so at least it's not burning his skin quite as bad.

    If it is c-diff, the treatment is a different course of antibiotics (they should culture his stool to test what it's sensitive to.) and it should clear up quickly.
