He was a preemie at birth coming almost 6 weeks early...because of this he had underdeveloped lungs that were filled with fluid. He spent the first 3 days of his life in the NIC-U (and I am thankful that it was so short).
One month before he turned 2 he broke his left femur and was in a spica cast for almost 9 weeks...that was fun....not!
At 3 he had a super bad case of stomiovitus...a terrible terrible oral infection that gave him blisters and canker sores all over his lips, tongue, mouth, & throat...his pediatrician had never seen a case as bad as his. He couldn't eat for a week...it was so painful.
Three months after turning 4, he had to have surgery to drop his left testicle because it was undescended.
When he was 8 and a half he was diagnosed with Childhood Absence Epilepsy. He is now on 750mg daily of his anti-seizure medication.
And now, 1 week shy of his 9th birthday, he has once again been diagnosed with another undescended testicle...the right one this time. What does that mean...another surgery.
He heard this and lost it...'I am done mom' he said to me when the dr. told us this.
I am lifting my Colin Boy up to God...please give him the strength and courage to get through this next step...Give it all to God...because God's got this...
