Well, we have officially made Vanderbilt Children's Hospital part of our summer vacation. We have called them approximately 7 times and had one visit regarding James' persistent fever (hovering around 101 for almost three days). After our last call tonight, we were told that if his fever continues through tomorrow, we will need to make another visit to have him examined once again. Joy and I believe (in our expert medical opinion) that he has a nagging virus. He has understandably been extremely whiny and having little patience with us or himself. As a result, we have been understandably whiny and having little patience with him. It's a vicious cycle you see. It is hard being away from the familiarity of home, but we are thankful that we have been here in the company of our supportive Tennessee family and friends. James has been doing so well and it comes as no surprise that the day after we give our testimony at FBC Lewisburg, James begins to be affected by a virus. We know that we can choose our attitude each day, but your prayers for James' healing, patience all around, a continued fun visit to TN, and a safe drive home are coveted. Thank you for continuing to walk alongside us, lifting us up on prayer.
On a sidenote, we had a wonderful visit today with our friends Michael, Jana, Joshua, and Andi Kelley (check out Joshua's blog in our links). Pictures are forthcoming upon our return to Texas!
