Latest freebie and update.

I finally managed another freebie for all those that have been patiently lurking.....lol. Don't forget to leave a little loving and I hope you enjoy.

Download link no longer available.

Update on the home front....Lance had the rest of his tests on Monday and they finally found a problem. Under the Stress Echo Test they found that when Lance was at the peak of his exercise that the bottom of his heart literally stopped working...therefore no oxygen or blood flowing through as is meant too also means that not enough is getting to his brain. The pains he is having is literally Angina and not because he has blocked arteries but because he has a heart defect. Thankfully apart from the 2 technicians being there so was Lance's cardiologist and he saw what an attack does to Lance and what a mess the poor kid was so straight onto oxygen for awhile and still is could be until the attack subsided enough for him to get up and basically be told the bad news. Too keep it short it is very serious and we have been referred to the cardiology dept at the Royal Children's Hopsital (RCH) in Melbourne. All the info was faxed too them Monday and now we just have to be patient and wait for them to ring us and get us down there. I have no idea what this mean is reality apart from the fact that the daily pains are daily attacks of angina and sometimes he gets several in a day. The dizziness, sweating, nausea, faint headed is all due to low blood pressure as not enough is being pumped to his heart, and at the moment he really is not well. So we are in limbo just for the moment and somewhat numb and dazed by this. Anyway when I know more I will try to blog about it but in the meantime keep us in your thoughts and prayers please with what we are going through and about to undertake. I know God is looking after us and I know I gather my strength from him. As for how Lance is doing with all this.....well apart from the fact that his life has just been turned upside down he has not recovered well since the stress echo test on Monday and so is not well, is actually sleeping and he is not allowed to do any thing on the sports front whatsoever. Mentally I think we are all trying to deal with it the best way we can knowing God is with us and until we are told all the facts down at RCH then we just sit tight and pray. Oh and just for those that don't know....Lance turns 16 on the 15th of September. :)



Until next blogging....enjoy your freebie and leave a little loving.

Hugs

Oh gosh Chris, how scary for you all. Hope you get in to RCH soon and get some answers. Thinking of you and Lance.

Oh, Chris.... How heartbreaking for you all to be going through this. I'd say at least they have a diagnosis now, but I know that's no consolation. My heart really goes out to you all, and I really do pray that RCH contacts you soon so he can get the treatment he needs.
My thoughts are with you,
Jacinda

So sorry to hear what you are going through with your son. I hope the doctors are able to help him soon, must be really scary for him too.
Thanks so much for the gorgeous freebie, the colours are great!

Chris, I will be praying for Lance and for your family. The God who made Lance's body knows how to heal it. Marci

I love the colors in this freebie. Thank you. I also know that knowing the cause of Lance's pain is better for you because now they know where to start to treat him. My 17 year old DD has had stomach pain for several years and no one can find the cause - it's frustrating.

Nikkie said...

First time I'm on your blog...and what a sad story to read. I hope you'll soon know the next step in his treatment...

I also came by through "art you special" for your wonderful freebie. Thanks a lot!

So glad you have a diagnosis ... at least now you will know what you are dealing with.
By the way, I did the lil 'blog rating' quiz ... I am rated G, but oooops, I did use the font name 'bottled fart', so I am on notice, rotflol! :)

Hi Chris, first time on you blog, and so sorry to read about your son - prayers are with you all. May the doctors find the right treatment and pray that God will guide every step of his recovery.

I know how frightening this is with your son. My heart goes out to you. My youngest son had a very rare heart condition that had to be corrected when he was just a little older than your Lance. His heart would beat so fast that it would wear him out. The doctor said his heart was like that of a 40 year old person. After they got the procedure done that corrected the problem, his heart healed up and became fresh and new again. He has been fine ever since. But it is very scary when you go through something like this. Hugs to you and your family. I hope the doctors will be able to correct the problem Lance has and that all will be well with him.

Renee said...

My thoughts and prayers are with your family and Lance. Hopefully, knowing the problem is the first step towards curing it.

Goodness Chris, poor Lance is having a hard time, closely followed by your family's worry about him too, I'm sure. My prayers are certainly with you during this rough patch, and fingers crossed you can get it sorted real soon so that Lance can begin to feel well again. Hugs.
