Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our family blog. This may be your first visit here, or you may be a friend from across the globe, or family that we have just seen. Who ever you may be, thanks for taking the time to read about our little family, and all we are learning on this adventure the Lord has called us to live! Here you will find, the random thoughts, funny stories, prayer requests, and the journey our family and Jack is on with his battle with Leukemia.

at the hospital

I have long been meaning to update about the health of our family, but as you will read, we have not had much time for the blog. As I write, I am sitting in the Pediatric Emergency Room, waiting for Jack to return from getting a sonogram done on his abdomen.

For the past month, he has been pretty sick, with ear infections, and various other ailments. The issues became pressing, when we noticed his glands in his groin area swollen and he was limping. This quickly escalated to where he could no longer walk at all. We took him for blood work, and they found that he had gotten Lyme Disease. We thought we had caught it in the early stages, and so the Dr. began a cycle of amoxicillin. That was 3 weeks ago. His glands all over his body have continued to swell, and he has been pretty much miserable.

So here we are today, to see if this is all Lyme Disease, or if something else is causing all of this. He has been a trooper and has put up with a lot of poking and prodding.

We are so aware of our weakness in all of this. We are drawing near to the Lord, knowing that he is not only intimately aware of all the details of the situation, but every cell in Jacks body. We are drawing great comfort and faith in the knowledge that the Lord is worthy of trust and faithful.

Isaiah 40:27-31

Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, "My way is hidden from the LORD, and my right is disregarded by my God"? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Updates will come as I can. Dylan is here with us, and he is being an angel baby. I am not sure how long I will be able to stay with the snow storm upon us. The plan for now was for Jordan to stay the night with him. I would like to stay as well, but a lot will be determined by the room he is given, assuming he is going to be admitted. We are really just going to wait and see what happens after these tests. Thank you friends for the prayers for our little man.
