It’s a day for celebration in the Taylor Household.
Almost a year ago, Grant got sick. It started with a cold, then moved on to strep. He had stomach pains as well. This went on for several months. That overwhelming “Mommy sense” came over me, and I decided to request a round of labs to be drawn to see if there was an underlying cause creating a reason for him not to heal.
When the results came in, we discovered that Grant was hypoglycemic and very anemic. The cause for his stomach pains was still in question.
As we began a whole new learning curve trying to figure out how to maintain his blood sugar, we also began juggling tests, more tests, doctor appointments and more doctor appointments.
Grant has now been diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. Another learning curve for us.
Although he has a new diagnosis (along with asthma, hypoglycemia, and Asperger’s) , he has been officially given the “all clear” and released from hematology at the Texas Tech Southwest Cancer Center. My heart goes out to all of the children I saw during our visits at the clinic. They have more strength than I do, that’s for sure.
Actually, so does Grant. He’s an excellent patient. He’s an excellent young man.
Thank you, God, for Grant, and thank you, God, for the “all clear.”
