it was by way of miracle that God provided a way out of that rock and hard place situation. the peripheral IV plan was our miracle. our way out. our way of getting sparky the treatment he needs.
now his veins have crapped out. even when they get a line in, it quits working in short order or his body just rejects them. no one could have ever anticipated that this would occur.
last week, the doc tried to access his vein 6 times...but to no avail.
even after enduring all those pokes, sparky piped up,
"too bad i'm not an octopus. at least we'd have a few more options."
i am continually amazed at how he maintains in his humor in the face of suffering and adversity - he truly is a unique and unusual kid - but, unfortunately, his uniqueness does not include 8 arms.
we are between a rock and a hard place. again.
we pray and wait for God to make a way out.
over the past 3.5 years, we have had to go to extraordinary measures to get sparky the treatment he needs.
we will continue to do so.
and God has moved in extraordinary ways to provide a way thru.
we know He will continue to do so.
