Over the past years we have seen evidence of the power of prayer. I am not as good about asking for prayer for myself as I am asking for my children but I need them now please. For the past 7 weeks or so I have been in a great deal of pain. Mainly my joints and muscles and an extremely worn out feeling. Not like I normally feel. Nothing I could really put my finger on or explain. I kept blaming it on not being able to get enough rest, missing the comforts of home and all that had been going on. Well it continued to get worst and was really bad this weekend so I gave in and went to the doctor. They took 4 vials of blood to check for lots of stuff. One thing that she suspects is Lupus. PLEASE pray that it's not that. I do not know the other things she is testing for except for my vitamin D. She thinks that may be low. We are hoping it's just that and that's what is causing my pain.
That same day I had to take Abe back to have his eyes checked. One is much better but the other one is still really bad. We are taking him next week to the pediatric opthomologist to see why these meds are working for it. We were hoping that we could take him to Dr. Lambert who saw him in the NICU or to the girls opthomologist but they are completely booked for 2 months and he needs to be seen as soon as possible. I am sure this doctor will be fine but ya'll know how I am with change. Please keep Abe in your prayers for complete healing of his eyes.
On an exciting and nervous note we take his cast off tomorrow. Once his cast are off he will go straight into his shoes and brace for 23 hours a day. All of our clubfoot friends have been encouraging us and trying to prepare us for how tough it's going to be the first couple of weeks in his shoes. Hopefully our sweet spirited guy will just go with the flow and do great with it. I can't wait to see his precious little feet and get him a real bath.
After his cast come off we will take him to be weighed and measured and to get a couple of his immunizations.
Thanks so much for your continued prayers.
