This week has been kind of rough. Mr P has been struggling more and more with vomiting. His appetite has continued to suffer. Thankfully we have been blessed with a wonderful GI doctor. I had a very lengthy conversation with him and he then called another specialist that specializes in the exact intestinal infection that has caused Preston to be so ill. The concensus is that we will be giving him a VERY STRONG antibiotic for the next FIVE weeks! So far it has been a little bit of a challenge to get it into him but prayerfully this will get him feeling better once and for all. He has to have 1 teaspoon four times a day. I have a call in to the doctor to see if while he is on this strong antibiotic if we can get out and about more. I am not sure what they will say since he will still be susceptable to viral illness, but it would be nice if we could go to church or be around groups of people. Waiting to hear back... He is so cute and when he is feeling well he is so curious and silly. I am enjoying him so much! He has been such a blessing to our family, but I sure wish he was feeling well all the time, and that he didn't have to go through so much....
We have also become involved in this new program here in town. It is called the "Parent Child Home Program." I am not sure where it initiated but it is a state funded program, where someone essentially comes into the house each week (the same person) and brings P a new toy or book and plays with him or reads to him. She brought an Usborne book this time called "That;s not my puppy" and then he got to do his first little coloring craft project with his worker Martha:-)
James 1:17 (NIV) Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
