Healthy and Together
Praise God that we had a great visit to MD Anderson yesterday. James put on his best "I ain't sick!" persona and presented as a happy and healthy 2 year old. His doctor looked at him as he was pounding on a play piano and noted through keen observation that, "Well, he seems like he feels good." All of his examinations and blood work looked normal and his antibiotic seemed to be helping tremendously. I believe that the love of our family and the respite provided by AC has made the biggest difference by far. While we are displaced and referred to as "refugees" by my brother, we have felt comfortable and had fun during this challenging time. As we have stayed in contact with our neighbors, we have found that power has not yet been restored and will likely be restored by next Thursday at the latest. Pray for sooner! I had a chance to go back to the neighborhood a couple of days ago and it seemed more together with a stronger sense of community than ever before. It's been awesome to see the kindness of neighbors and how people have banded together to make the best of an unfortunate situation. We thank you for your prayer and support and hope to be back in our home very soon!
