Bible Verse of the Day

Right now I need wisdom.

I need wisdom to know how best to look after Rory.  We are seeing a paediatrician (who saw Rory in the hospital) in Perth next week because we suspect Rory has silent reflux.  We have elevated his cot mattress to a 45 degree angle and are giving him Infacol.  If it's not reflux, I don't know what it is.  It is very hard to get him to sleep for any decent period during the day which means I don't get a sleep either.  He seems to be in pain and screams a lot. 

I'm also thinking, What if we're wrong?  What if the paediatrician says there's nothing physically wrong with him?  What if it's just his personality that's grumpy and wakeful? 

I need wisdom to know who to consult.  There's a bewildering array of medical professionals and well-meaning friends out there who will tell you all sorts of things.

Thanks Amanda for reminding me that God gives wisdom to those who ask for it.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.  If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
James 1:2-5

YAY for paediatricians! They know stuff, they are helpful and the ones I've dealt with are usually kind and gentle with stressed-out over-tired parents (and their babies). Will be praying that it will be a helpful visit for you and that you'll get the wise advice you are after. :)

Poor Rory, and poor Mum.
Hooray for doctors sharing their medical knowledge.

Praying that you and Duncan continue to have true wisdom and that you receive knowledge on how to help young Rory.

Will pray that your visit to the paediatrician gives you some answers and some help. Hopefully if it is suspected reflux they will give you some medication to try....if it really is reflux usually the medication sorts it out pretty quickly, it worked a treat with our little bubby when she needed it :) Sorry to hear things are still a bit difficult, do hang in there and keep us all posted on how you're going too.

Take care xx
