We have some fantastic news! We are just so pumped that we wanted to share it with all of you!


Isn't that great?

I mean...she actually has an infection. That is so good b/c it means that she doesn't have some sort of lifelong allergy, or metabolic disorder, or malformed intestines! She doesn't have crones disease, or celiacs disease, or a wheat or milk allergy! It is just a bunch of really hard to find bacteria living in her gut.

We just give her medicine, and in 5-10 days, she should be gaining weight, eating again, and having solid poopy!

I just can't explain how relieved we are. God has answered our prayers. Thank you for your prayers and support and offers for groceries, and love. It means so much!

So we go back to the Doc in a month or so to re-weigh, but he told us that her appetite should improve very soon.

And tonight, she ate a hamburger patty (from mcdonalds) like 8 french fries and a half of an oreo. Oh, and an ounce of juice! That may not seem like a lot, but compared to practically nothing, it is a ton! to bathe the kids.

I'm totally behind in my blog reading. I am so sorry I missed the prayer request the other day when you posted it. I'm so glad she is SICK. I will continue to pray for her to heal and gain weight. Isn't it day she's be praying NOT to gain weight (as an adult woman). =-)

I'm so happy you found a simple cause for her problems. There is nothing as frightening as having your baby not healthy.
Praising him with you,
