therapy and prayers

So.  It's been awhile.  It's so hard to make time for so many things I love, and yet... and yet, sometimes I know I just have to do it.  I just have to let the dishes sit, and find me some therapy.

Let's start at the very beginning, a very good place to --

No, let's not.  We'll never get through it.

Let's start with today.

Today, Sebastian is on hour number five of not being able to eat.  He's on a clear liquids only diet, in preparation for a colonoscopy tomorrow.  Tomorrow, at 3:00 pm.  If you're counting, that's 26 hours of not eating.  For a three year old.  Ask me if he understands.  He doesn't.  God gave us popsicles though, and the green and orange ones are included on the diet, so with His help and those, we'll make it through.  The test itself?  We just don't know.  He's been having some symptoms that can't be explained after two months and countless non-invasive tests, so now, it's the colonoscopy.  He'll be sedated (a blessing as well as an additional worry).  We're hoping the test goes well, and that we find answers that bring peace and good health to our sweet little guy.

I'm anxious, for so many reasons.  So.

Pray for him, please?  Thanks.
