Finally An Answer

Hunter and I trucked it in to the hospital for a quick set appointment with the CT scan people. Come to find out his appendix is fine, he does however have something called Mesentric Adenitis. MA is the swelling of the lymph nodes in the Mesentric area of the abdomen and mimics appendicitis to a T! MA has no real cure so we can only medicate Hunter for symptoms, but we cannot fix his problem. Most of the time MA sticks around for about 2-3 weeks, Hunter has been sick 1 week today, so we have a little bit to go.
Hunter's spirits were lifted when we got home and the school had dropped off Get Well Soon cards from his class...he felt sooooo loved!


Thank the good Lord we had a wonderful Pediatrician, Dr. Katie Copeland, and a wonderful hospital, St. Luke's Meridian, who would not give up with an easy answer and fit us in late on a Friday to get a CT Scan and get an answer!
