We are somewhat in a routine with James and his treatment right now. He consistently does a wonderful job of taking (with some strong-handed coercion) his nightly chemotherapy, but he doesn't do so great taking the protective antibiotic two-times per day, three days per week. We continue to attempt any potential trick, but we have found that the most effective means is to take it head on and continue to attempt to convince him that all this unwanted treatment is helpful. We press on! James has been a riot recently. He's a chatterbox and often attempts to have dialogue with whomever will listen. Now, it's his own special language, but he is absolutely fluent! James has responded well post-LP. He has maintained good sleep patterns, has not been overly fussy, and has appeared happy most of the time. Thank you for your prayer in this area.
We are so blessed that Adrianne is in the clear from jaundice. Her doctor released her from the UV light yesterday. Yeah! Joy and Nana have received little sleep because of Adrianne's erratic sleep patterns. They have been tag-teaming with Adrianne so that I am able to be fresh for work. I am blessed - that's for sure. Please pray that Adrianne sleeps for good pockets of time so that everyone can get much needed rest. We are certainly reminded each day of challenges we face, and it often seems that new challenges pop up every day. Yet, our faith has continued to grow and our dependence on God is ever apparent each day. Thank you for being God's instrument by sharing His love through your words and actions. We'll keep you updated. Again, it's so nice to have ordinary things to talk about.
