Prayers Please!

Abby has had a minor setback. She has had to start seizure medicine again. She started complaining about having a "funny" feeling late last Monday night on the left side of her body. After several phone calls to St. Jude, we were told she was having sensory seizures and would need to go back on medicine to control them. We were very disappointed. We are just praying that this doesn't mean the tumor is growing. We will just have to wait for the MRI to see. The medicine has several possible side effects that we are having to watch for which is a little scary too. These are our prayer requests:
1. pray that she won't experience any negative side effects from the medicine
2. pray that the tumor is stable
3. pray that God will give His wisdom to her doctors
4. pray that Jason and I will continue to trust in the Lord to take care of her and us

Thank you all so much for being faithful friends.

Although we are anxious and worried, we know that God is with us. We have a peace that we can't explain.

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:7

Quick Update

I am the worst blogger. I get busy with life and reading other people's blogs that I forget I should be blogging too!

First of all, an announcement for those who don't live near: God will be blessing us with another baby in January! We don't know if its a girl or boy yet but we are very excited to add another little one to our family.

Second, Abby is officially a kindergartner now! We just finished up our first week of home school kindergarten and it was awesome! I have another blog for our home school adventures that I may or may not keep updated :) Updated to add: here is the link to other site. I did an update for our first week of school.

Last, our next MRI is September 13th. Please pray for Abby, that the tumor will not have grown, they don't detect any changes in her vision, and that the trip goes smoothly.

I will post an update after we know our MRI results. Thank you so much for your prayers!
