Newest Update on Little Man...

Little Man seems to be doing much better with his new asthma medication.  He still needs his albuterol inhaler once in a while but less often than before.  I never imagined my little baby to be on so much medicine!  But sometimes, as in this case, his meds are very needed.  Praising the Lord for his goodness!!!

We finally met with his tummy dr (GI specialist) and he ran some blood tests for certain things.  I was anxiously waiting the 10 days to hear the results.  Praying for good news because it seems everytime he sees a dr, more things are found and diagnosed.  I don't think I've cried so much in the life than I have since Little Man has been born.  The nurse called me and told me that his blood tests show that he is allergic to wheat and eggs.  And he also has elevated antibodies that indicate celiac disease (gluten intolerance).They want to test him further to determine to confirm or deny their findings.  I cried hard after hanging up the phone with the nurse. It's so frustrating.  I don't understand what all the testing is.  I would prefer to just change his diet and see if he improves.  He has a test tomorrow morning and the next ones will be scheduled after that if SuperDaddy and I go through with all the testing.  Please keep Little Man in your prayers. How much more can be wrong with my baby.  Please pray that I stay focused on the Lord and continue to praise him in all circumstances!

Thanks for your prayers and support!
