…to say that we are doing well. We had a quiet Easter at home, and enjoyed our church's services via the world wide web! Praise the Lord for technology!
We had a scare with Isaac last week…the doctor thought his shunt was infected, sent us for a CAT scan and told us to be prepared for more surgery. Thank God that he was wrong and the shunt was not infected. It was just a skin infection, and he's been on a strong antibiotic for it. The surgery site is looking much better now.
We're still trying to get his bowels in working order, following surgery, and this additional medication is wreaking havoc with them. We're not out of ideas, yet, though, so we'll keep persevering with that.
My back is still not well, and I'll be seeing my chiropractor and my doctor this week, Lord willing, for their continued advice. I really appreciate your prayers about that.
We have decided to shop for a new bed, rather than a used vehicle. We're thinking the investment will be more helpful to us in the long run, even though the initial outlay is staggering for a new bed! If you have any suggestions – and by that, I mean, a bed that has worked for you – please pass them along.
The Lord continues to be so faithful, and is showing us mercy on every side. We feel overwhelmed by His goodness, and unworthy of it too. I know He is doing something in us, and through us, during this time; and I am just trying to trust His timing (while letting go of mine – or at least, trying to hold my plans very loosely.) ;o)
I pray that you have a good week, and that you continue to rejoice in the truth of the Resurrection!
