I will keep things short this time around I promise.
I got admitted to the hospital Tuesday night. I am still here awaiting some answers as to if I am having a massive Crohns flare or another infection like I battled earlier this year in Jan/Feb/March.We are already dealing with some of the same paperwork/office politics we did last time around, so I would appreciate prayers for the following:
1. Decisiveness in creating a treatment/procedure plan on for the different departments and doctors I am dealing with. We normally go through a holding pattern where Surgeon's dont want to see me as my CT shows active Crohns, and the GI guys say its an infection due to the symptoms I am having which I wont go into details on to spare you all. Normally its 2-3 days before they decide if they are going to actually do anything, during which I am confined to only clear liquids, which is you haven't been on before, pray you never have to.
2. That this isn't anything big so I can go home and not mess with our vacation plans to leave on Saturday for TN.
3. Peace for my wife. This isn't the first time we have been on this merry go round, however this is the first time she has been on it while pregnant which adds a whole new level of complexity to things.
4. Continued Strength and Patience for both myself and my wife. This is hard for me to just sit here not at work, and be mostly confined to a bed, it also gets boring very fast.
So for those who didnt catch it in #3, we are expecting our first child, a girl on February 4th of this year. I am already working hard to ensure she is properly indoctrinated in audio already . We are tentatively agreed on the name Skye Meridith Pedersen.
If folks want more in depth I can, but at this point prayers for myself and my family are more than enough.
