quick update

Ethan's appointment went well on Tuesday. He had to get a shot - which he didn't like - but it's a preventative step against pneumonia and such, so it was good for him. His sodium is borderline too low, and his potassium is border line too high... meaning they are still in the "safe zone" (thankfully!), but are close to a slight dip in the wrong direction. Pray that they each get back to their respective & "appropriate" levels.

And one quick thing, can you pray fervently with me today about this rash on Ethan's face? It's starting to become very red and inflamed around his eyes (upper and lower eye lids) and he's rubbing them all the time - making it worse. Pray with me today that the irritation around his eyes specifically would go away even this very day.

Adam goes back to see the hand doctor tomorrow to have his cast removed and to have an assessment since his surgery last week. He's been quite uncomfortable. Pray God's blessing over his hand and the appointment.

Thank you so much for taking the time to pray for us. I'm so honored that you do.

We are praying for you. I am glad to hear that Ethan is doing so well. I have a feeling he is going to beat this cancer. My husband had cancer as a child and it has been in remission since he was 9. God is good!
