My mom called me last night to let me know my cousin’s 10 year old son, Charlie, is in the hospital in critical condition. Apparently he’s been sick for a couple of weeks and they’ve been treating him for the flu because they couldn’t find anything wrong with him. Yesterday evening the pain got so bad his mother took him to the ER where the discovered not only had his appendix burst, but it had done so sometime the day before and infection is everywhere. They started giving him antibiotics, and were going to do surgery this morning.
I just spoke to my mom again for an update, and they have not taken him into surgery yet. She does not what the doctors are waiting on. He’s still considered in critical condition. She said they are afraid he’s not going to make it, but I’m not sure if she meant the doctors or the family.
Pray for my mom too. This particular part of the family turned their backs on her not long after my dad died and don’t consider her “family” anymore. She’s blood family to them, but they refuse to have anything to do with her. Long story, but it’s unfounded on their parts. My mom desperately wants to be at the hospital there with then, but because of the mess they created doesn’t feel she’d be welcome there and is probably right.
God is still in the healing and miracle business though. And he can heal my cousin and he can heal this relationship between my mom and his mom.
