I did want to share a couple of other things with you. First our little Sam has suffered somewhat with eczema since he was a baby. Melody has done all kinds of things about it to include special creams, soaps, etc. But recently he has just been itchy. No real eczema rash at all right now but just itchy. So she decided to take him back to the docs again and they decided to test him for allergies to see if they can't get to the bottom of the problem. She got the results this morning and they said he has several allergies and so they are going in tomorrow to discuss the next step and treatment plans. I am praying for wisdom for the docs and relief and comfort for Sam. It seems a little weird to me as allergies USUALLY include itchy, watery eyes and a running nose with sneezing. Sam has NONE of these symptoms. We will see. I just have to show you this pic of little Sam getting his blood drawn for the testing. Broke Grandma's heart, Look at his little face...But you should have heard him telling me the story this morning on the phone. He said, "Grandma they put big needles in my arm but I only cried a little. I was tough and brave. And then I got ice cream!" lol
|THANK GOODNESS HIS DADDY COULD COME HELP OUT WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR THE BLOOD TO BE DRAWN. I GUESS CLAIRE PICKED THAT MOMENT TO FUSS FOR HER LUNCH AND LUKE WAS BUSY DUMPING CRACKERS ON THE GROUND, LOL HAVE I MENTIONED HER HANDS ARE FULL?|
And then my grand daughter Lindsey is graduating next week from junior high. She will of course be starting high school in the fall. My oldest son and his wife have been praying for a while about where to send her for high school as none of them really want her at the local public high school. Lindsey's hearts desire is to go to the Christian high school where Melody and two of my sons went as well. But to say it is expensive would be putting it mildly. Melody only graduated from there 10 years ago, and I thought it was high then. But today's tuition would have put it out of our reach. Anyway, there is a VERY GOOD chance that she is to get into the school on a scholarship. She has maintained a perfect 4.0 all through junior high and has been involved in student council and a mentor for special ed students, She is also a star athlete, Sooo she is looking pretty good. They have a meeting today to find out what is happening. I have her covered in prayer as well. It's hard sometimes because I think OF COURSE God wants her in that school, but the bottom line is we don't know and we have to trust Him. I just tell myself as much as I love her and want what's best for her, He wants it more. So if this is where she is meant to be, then the details will be worked out. Lindsey plays on a club volleyball team which she just loves. They just finished their season 3rd overall. Oh, and her club coach is the varsity coach at the Christian high school, and will put in good word for her! Coincidence? Maybe, but I think not.
