A Mother's Apprehension

For these past few days I’m not inspired to neither write nor post in my blog. I even don’t do my usual blog hopping and EC dropping for I just don’t feel it. My mind was so pre-occupied with so many things concerning my son’s health.

I’m worried with my son’s lump on his left foot. His complaining that it’s painful and it already affects the way he walks. He keeps on leaping his left foot.

This Lump started if I’m not mistaken when he was still 9 months old. At first we thought that it was just a plain foot callous. By the way, my son learns to walk at an early stage. In fact he uses his walker for only a month. By the age of 1 he can walk on himself already. And that’s the time that we consulted to his pedia about his foot. His pedia told us to monitor its growth and if he won’t complain pain on it, there’s nothing to worry. And if we decided to take it off through operation my son will be sedated with general anesthesia. And its not advisable yet for his too young to go through that process. So from that on we just check his lump from time to time. 3 years had past and he complained nothing about it.

And just this Saturday February 21, he complained about his left foot and told me that “mama akit ako tiil” (mom my foot is aching) pointing to his left foot. At first I thought that he was just joking, so I ask him again if what part of his foot is painful and he kept on pointing his left foot. So I decided to let it check on his pedia last Tuesday, February 24. His pedia check it and refer us to a pedia surgeon but our appointment will be next week yet March 3 for his under medication. His pedia gave us antibiotics for the pain and swelling well subside, for there’s a swelling around the affected area.

I was afraid and worried. I pray that this is just a simple lump on his foot. That there’s nothing to worry about. I have sleepless nights since yesterday and keep on observing his lump. Can’t wait next week so that we’ll know what it is. Hope everything will be fine on his coming check up. Until now his still complaining on his foot and sometimes he does cry when he feels a stabbing pain on it. I feel helpless seeing my son crying as if my heart was squeeze. If only I can take away the pain he feels on his foot. It's really hard seeing my son suffering with pain.

Hang in there. When my daughter was little she got a tiny piece of glass in her foot, it took almost 2 years to work back to the surface. You both will be in my thoughts over the coming days.

Sis, my heart is torn when I hear something about kids and children's condition. Sis, don't worry he's gonna be alright. The Lord is good all the time. The Lord's faithfulness is manifested in ways He has arranged.

hi Laine I just read this post today, and I feel for you laine sometimes it is really hard to being a mom specially when your child is sick, just be strong laine and hug your son oftentimes and touch the part that made him uncomfortable and hurt him, sometimes our touch could heal them and would take those pains away. I keep you in my prayers.
