Mommies Know Best!

Well I am happy to say that the catheter is OUT! It was a rough go and Ben has been in some pain. It seems I was right and though it is rare, Ben does have a urinary tract infection. Something I tried to convince a nurse of last night but she assured me that was rare and was likely NOT the case. After a urine test today, mommy's suspicion was confirmed! He is on course of antibiotics and has to be seen again on Monday. So please continue to pray for him. He is uncomfortable and has had a few bladder spasms since having the tube removed as he is learning what it feels like to have to pee again after just having it constantly drain for four days.

So to all who hoped to see us tomorrow, for your fourth of July parties, I am sorry to say we will be staying home. Ben needs to rest and we all need a little time to be still. It has been a rough week. Thank you all for your continued prayers! We love you!

Hope his antibiotics kick in soon and he is feeling like a new little man! And Mommy's always know what is wrong.

Mommies do know best! Good job momma! This happened with one of our sons, as well, and lasted for 2 weeks, until someone finally listened to me...frustrating! Anyway, I pray that he starts feeling well soon. Poor little guy! Hang in there! God Bless You and your wonderful family!

I am so glad his catheter is out!! And UTI's are definitely painful, poor little guy. Praying for him to start feeling much better now that the problem is being taken care of. You are such a good mommy Kristy. Have a restful and wonderful day today.
