Praise Reports

Needless to say things have been a bit stressful around here. It's like one big emergency after another, but I like to believe that the worst is behind us.

They say when it rains it pours, so I should not be surprised that in the middle of getting ready for school to start and dealing with various medical situation Z would break his glasses. It was in a very awkward place too. We tried apoxy, super glue, and in the privacy of our own home I was even desperate enough to use tape. Thus the funny photo I posted the other day.

Long testimony short we got an anonymous envelope  in the mail with nothing but cash inside and it was the exact amount it costed to get Z's glasses fixed just in time for school! I have no idea who this good samaritan is, but if you are reading this thank you for your generosity and for being a willing vessel. God is good.

As far as SJ, the scary episodes she was having with her internal device seem to have subsided and we saw her ENT today. He showed me her CT scans and gave a very thorough explanation of what it appears has happened. The good news is that the internal device is not misplaced, but it has shifted a little bit within the area that it was implanted. This is not anything you can see from the X-ray, but judging by her symptoms it is pretty obvious. It will heal itself by building up scar tissue that will secure the device again and she will be 100% back to her normal once the process is complete. She hardly ever touches her head there anymore, so I think it will be smooth sailing from here. We will see the Doctor again in two months just to be sure. 

Both of these things were like mountains before us along with the horrible infection I got in the middle of it all, but everyone is healthy and doing well now. Praise the Lord. Thank you for all of your prayers!
