The Lesser Evil



We have once again been overwhelmed by the support and prayers and suggestions and inquires from so many that we know and love....and some we dont know but are so touched that they took the time to contact us!  We heard so many possible scenarios for what could be causing Izzy's alarming eosinophil counts both from doctors and from friends and strangers who told us about possible conditions that can cause these numbers to be elevated.

A little update....as most of you know, our 6 year old Izzy is being evaluated by doctors for a very enlarged stomach, pain and abnormal bloodwork.

Izzy was put on an aggressive anti-parasite treatment for two weeks.  She was on anti-nausea medicine to combat what we were told would be an almost certain side-effect of her parasite treatment.
Let me tell you that she did not have a single day that nausea darkened her doorstep - thank you Jesus!!  Such a direct answer to prayer!
Labs were drawn post-treatment and revealed a declining eosinophil count.
The Dr. said to give her body 3 weeks to see if the trend continued and then we would retest the blood since the antibiotics she had been receiving could have masked the problem.
Today we returned for more bloodwork.
Im thrilled to report that her numbers look perfect!  It is amazing to see the graph of where they were and how rapidly they declined to a "normal" healthy number.
She wants to retest in a couple months to make sure there isnt a "relapse", but feels confident that we have treated the problem.

I never thought Id be so relieved that its "just parasites".
Oh the very thought makes my skin crawl, but it is so much better than some of the scary alternatives we were looking at.  Its the lesser evil I suppose.  So so so so thankful!

THANK YOU ALL for your prayers on her behalf.  God has given us much peace through this process and placed us in the hands of wonderful doctors for which we are very grateful!   I feel like we have our girl back again.  I didnt realize how uncomfortable she had been until the end of her treatment when she wasnt lying around so much and got her sparkley spunk back!!
(here's a picture of her cute, quirky self haming it up....and Evie rolling her eyes at her crazy sister!)


In other news, we had just bid farewell to Mandy's cousin Faith who spent the last month living with us.  It was such a gift to have (practically a sister) here as a companion in C's absence when he travels.  We discovered that she and I both share a family trait of being able to consume unnatural amounts of popcorn while watching chic flicks late at night!
Faith is a teacher, so helped me get a better grip with homeschooling and fit right into our family.  Each of the kids got "Faith Dates" to the movies, or fun shopping sprees or explorations of the city.  She's got that crazy adventurous spirit and by the end of her month here, I felt like she was showing me around instead of the other way around!

Peace out - a clear sign we've been in Asia too long!

SUCH a blessing to have family so far from home!
We miss you Faithie!!

Not that she could be replaced, but......we quite enjoyed having her work with Izzy and Evie on a more elementary level while I do the older grades with the big kids.
Any post-graduate girls you know looking for an overseas missions experience and interested in tutoring?!
Im serious....we've got a room with a view here!

has anyone tried Celebrity Sexy Teeth Whitener'? i just bought 3 tubes for $99. supposed to whiten your tooth 8 shades in 14 days using it 2x day. with the applicator apply a thin layer on each tooth and let it set for 30 min. before drinking/eating. last night was my 1st time. we'll see.
BUT the info doesn't say how long using their whitener lasts before you have to buy another tube!!!

Everyone use your brain superman is not smart
by any implies when he fights he fights head on so if hulk and superman were to have into
a battle it would be a very extended battle one particular
exactly where superman would literally die from exhaustion.
due to the fact despite the fact that both have impressive resumes holding up planets and punching holes via time and space the huge advantage hulk has would
be the reality that he has unlimted power the a lot more the hulk gets frustrated
the a lot more damage he takes the a lot more power
he gains. Here is an additional huge disadvantage superman
punches 1st and figures out a plan later so unless
he runs away and figures out a weakness he will in no way ever defeat the hulk.

P.s Hulk is raw energy and so the speed point is not a huge deal due to the fact he is just as rapidly.
and he can generate a necular exsplosion with just clapping his hands.
