In AWE of God’s Power
MAY 14, 2015
One thing I haven’t told many people is that I am now going to college full time. YAY ME! I am finally going to finish college! I am really excited and going full time. I plan on getting my degree in Biblical Studies with emphasis on Worship Leadership.
At my university, I am given the option of writing a thesis in lieu of my English courses. It would actually give me 12 credits worth. So I have decided to write about my sons diagnosis of Childhood Kidney Disease. I will so be discussing his initial diagnosis of Posterior Urethral Valves and Pediatric Dialysis. I pray I can get it together and make it work.
A long time ago I got copies of my sons medical records from when he was first diagnosed in utero to when he was released from the NICU. And I was simply in AWE. Not because of everything that was wrong with him… but because of everything God did to heal him.
Here is a SHORT list of my son’s main problems at birth:
- Bilateral Hydronephrosis
- pneumothorax in both lungs
- pulmonary hypoplasia
- pulmonary hypertension
- subdural hematoma
- cerebral hemorrhage with intraventricular inundation
And none of those have anything to do with his bladder issues. I did what I’m sure some of you are going to do.. I googled these and I was shocked. At the time I remember I KNEW our son was sick…. I even remember bits and pieces of doctors talking to us and telling us what is wrong. I remember it like flashbacks. But I don’t think I ever REALLY understood the severity of his problems.
I remember his lungs were an issue… then his brain bleeds… then his heart… then his kidneys…
Fast forward to now… I am just in AWE, The POWER GOD HAS.
In The Name of Jesus…
To God Be The Glory
