david and his nose.

January 26th | david


i am happy to report that david’s tummy is feeling better .

he has been much less crampy and reflux-y.  we are so happy!

but a couple days ago while i was picking his nose

(don’t you pick your kids’ noses??)

i noticed a bump just inside the left nostril.

so we saw our pediatrician yesterday and the ENT today.

it looks like a benign polyp, but they want to do an MRI and see if there are other polyps or anything else to be concerned about.

we are driving down to children’s hospital in los angeles tomorrow morning to see a specialist.

they’ll probably schedule a simple surgery to remove the polyp(s).

we are hopeful that it will be simple and taken care of quickly.

in the meantime i am madly doing laundry, rescheduling meetings and getting the house in order since we weren’t planning on leaving town.

i’ll keep you updated.  and thanks for caring about our sweet david!

    Hi, Lisa. I’ll be praying for you guys and that must be a relief that his tummy is happy again. Hugs to you.

    Oh my goodness, Lisa. What a roller coaster for you guys. I hope it goes smoothly and turns out to be quite minor. I can relate to those “we didn’t know we were going to the hospital but here we go” experiences, but not so much lately. Good luck with everything. (And yes, I do pick my kids’ noses when they will let me! I’m a picker).

  45. sheri says:

    i also have a son, mac, with special needs, he’s 17 now, but what a joy he brings to our lives. what breaks my heart is all the nasty things he has to endure, much like david. so unfair. the bright side is that he has taught us & continues to teach us daily how to be better people. it’s obvious that david has blessed your family. i wish him better days ahead & you too. hang in there…lots of hugs

  46. Whitney Hill says:

    It’s never fun when something is wrong with your kiddo — add to that the stress (and annoyance) of doctor’s visits — in my book, those are rarely fun either. Will pray for David today. Thank you for sharing the joys & struggles….and I don’t think I’ve said it yet, Happy New Year. 😉

  47. Melissa says:

    I hope everything goes well. Kids are so precious to us!
