Prayers please

I know I haven't been around much lately and when I have I haven't been so much my usual self.
But I really need your prayers.
My son has had some issues the last year. Issues relating with growth and complications from early puberty.
He's also been unwell. Persistent headaches and some 'episodes' where he has fainted, felt nauseous, dizzy and some double vision and balance issues.
They haven't been ongoing.
One minute he is as fit as a fiddle and the next unwell.
We went to the doctors again today and he had some blood pressure issues. Initially he had really high blood pressure then 5 mins later dangerously low.
The doctor has sent him for a brain scan tomorrow morning. He is checking for a brain tumor.
I'm trying to stay positive and not worry but it's just not the current health issues. Early puberty and stunted growth in boys can be attributed to a brain tumor.
He has already had X-rays, scans and blood tests this year. A diagnosis that he will never grow past 5"2 which have really taken its toll on him. But never any answers as to why.
Now he has to go through this.
An awful lot on the shoulders of a 14 yr old.
I'm trying to stay strong and positive but inside I'm struggling.
I just pray that tomorrow brings good news and not an explanation to all these issues that I'm dreading.
Your prayers would be greatly appreciated!!

My dear,
I pray that it will not be a brain tumor. And if yes, please, get back to me.
I pray also for God holding you up and giving strength and wisdom to you to be a great support to your child.
If I was there, I would hug you very tightly.
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
-- Philippians 1:6

Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

And that, brothers and sisters, is the kind of foolishness you get people who insist on denying biblical theism. A good illustration of any as the length people will go to avoid acknowledging basic truths.

You have our sincere prayers.
1Tim1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.Amen.

Praying.
Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.

I rang this morning and the results had just come through to our doctor but there were no appointments available today so we have an appointment tomorrow arvo. They wouldn't give results over the phone.
I'm looking at this lack of urgency as a good sign.
I'm feeling much better today and calmer.
I was just really taken aback and scared when the doctor wanted the scans and spoke of the possibility.
I'm really humbled and grateful for all your prayers.
Especially Hana.
Thankyou xo
With what you have on your shoulders, your heart and caring for others is truly amazing.

On a side note, Riley got in trouble today at school that was pretty out of character for him.
He's far from perfect but a good kid.
He's a bit slack sometimes with his homework ect but I went for parent/teacher interviews a couple months back and all his teachers said that he could be a bit lazy with his school work but he was respectful and easy to like.
Then today he was apparently really out of line. Rude and full of attitude.
He got in trouble then laughed it off infront of the vice principle.
It's really out of character. I haven't informed the school of what's going on with him not only medically but psychologically.
I don't want to make excuses for poor behaviour but perhaps this is one time when perhaps he needs a bit of a break or understanding.
My hubby disagrees but I think the school should know the situation as it may shed some light on his behaviour.
Thoughts?

Sorry, Mel, didn't see this. Prayers for Riley, peace and wisdom for you and your husband.

My youngest is just about a year younger - it can be really challenging. We just got a call from the school yesterday - behavioral related. :roll: Our kid is extremely strong-willed!
