Prayer request

Recently we’ve noticed that Lucy’s arthritis has started spreading to other joints. At first it was only in her ankle, but now it appears to also be in her wrists and possibly in one of her knees. A doctor’s appointment today has confirmed our fears. The doctor we see really wants to aggressively treat this and not let it spread anymore. So now in addition to the medicine we hide in her food everyday we are going to start having to give her a shot once a week. We have to go for training next week so we can properly give her the shots. To top this all off we have to take her once a month to get blood tests to make sure she is not experiencing any of the side effects that these shots can give her. Drawing blood from Lucy is very hard, her veins don’t cooperate, and she screams and cries the entire time; last time it took almost a half hour. Please keep our little girl in your prayers.

The good news is that none of this appears to be bothering Lucy at all (with the exception of the blood tests and as long as your not messing with her wrists or ankles, but if you do she’ll let you know about it). She knows how to limp to avoid pain in her ankle and how to avoid putting pressure on her wrists. She loves life and she makes us love life all the more from sharing life with her.

Something very special happened today at nana and papa's church. Pastor Dan asked if anyone wanted to be anointed for a special need. I asked pastor Dan to anoint me for you and for special prayer for you. I believe in the power of God and the healing touch of his hand. There are a lot of people praying for you and I know that God hears and answers prayer.

I love you! Hope to see you soon!
