Andrew.

Here's an e-mail update my sister sent out regarding my nephew... they were up here Friday and the girls at the office got to see him crawl all around:o). He's definitely all-boy; he loves to eat! The little munchkin is all smiles too...what a cutie! If you think of it, I would appreciate you praying for him. Thanks!



Hi everyone- We just wanted to update all of you with Andrews' progress. Last week we went to CHOP and did basic tests. All the tests came back negative, except one of the blood tests. Andrew has extremely low proteins in the blood. Also, this week we met with the GI specialist and she did more observations on Andrew. At this time, she feels that Andrew is not absorbing the fats and proteins into his body from the food. We will be going into CHOP on Monday morning for further tests on his digestive tract. We also received a call from our regular doctor this morning. She said if Andrew does not gain weight in the next few days he will be admitted into CHOP. We would really appreciate the prayers and thoughts for Andrew so he will be comfortable and that we will be strong as his parents.

Oh, Anne. Thank you so much for the kind words. I really do appreciate them. You telling me that was an encouragement to ME because sometimes I feel quite inadequate as a sister in Christ and wonder if I'd doing my part. I pray I'll always be an encouragement to others and have been blessed beyond words to "meet" you and R and now T. God is good!
