Prayers for Carter

I have a call into the doctor at children's to see what our next option will be for testing. Our next appointment is in a few weeks.

I brought him to after hours care and was talking to the doctor (Dr. Knowels) there and she said to have the testing done only at Children's, not locally. She said that our doctors are good but lack any experience with kids.

Lately Carter makes a funny face almost as if his face is frozen in a mid wink expression. I can't be certain that it is really stuck like that or if it just an expression.It happens at random times and it is almost like he can't help it. My mommy gut is telling me that there is more to Carter's story then I even know.

When sharing Carter's story I have had many friends email me, telling me that they have Gastroparesis....Click here to read more about it... It is like his stomach is paralyzed.

I am thinking that this maybe EXACTLY what he has. I have printed off the information to bring to the doctor. Today when I called I requested a stomach emptying test that Dr. Knowels had recommend. I am waiting for a call back.

Please pray for Carter...he is 20 months old and almost every night is in so much pain and discomfort. We want and need answers.....
