WE MADE IT THRU AN ENTIRE WEEKEND WITHOUT A RAGE!!!!
YES! WE actually went thru an entire weekend without a rage! I think that the medication might be working. There is a downside (the weight gain), but I think we will be able to control this with exercise and diet(I hope). Danielle is really proud of herself and so are we. We would like to thank everyone who has continued to pray for us too, because we know that God has answered these prayers!
On a yucky note: Rylie had a fever last night of 103.7 and she was taken to the ER at Summerville Medical. After 3 hours of waiting we found out that she has Hand, Foot and Mouth disease. The doctor said this is a viral illness and that it is really going around right now. He suggessted that we avoid shopping carts even if we use the covers ( unless I washed it after every use, which I dont. I wash it weekly with my laundry). He said a better bet would be to use our stroller as much as possible. She is feeling a lot better today and her fever is much lower but it was a scary night to say the least. We once again used the power of prayer last night and we believe that our prayers were answered. Her fever broke even when the doctors said it would probably take 2-3 days of being that high. Well it broke before we left and now its like 100.2 ish and has been all day! Praise God!
"Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven."
James 5:14-15 NLT
By the way, we love our new camera! We will post some new pics soon! We have just been so busy! That seems to be the story of our life these days!
Have a blessed day!
