Logan playing chess with his buddy, Joshua
Hi from a very chilly, rainy Valley - it's 47 degrees and to us "Texans" it feels much colder!
We received the second pathology report from Logan's biopsy of last week and it was a confirmation of the first results - inflammation resulting from this major infection he has had. Thankfully the cultures taken at the time of the biopsy didn't grow MRSA, as happened before. However, the real test will be to see what happens when this 2nd long course of IV Vancomycin is finished - we hope we're winning the battle against this resistant bug.
Logan is 3 days into oral steroids to shrink the orbital inflammation that is causing his eye to bulge. I am not seeing dramatic improvement, nor am I seeing it getting worse. The doctor wants to prescribe this medication week by week and observe him in the office to see what's happening clinically. More patience is needed to just wait this out and see what happens.
Waiting....watching...praying....that seems to be what God wants us to do right now. Our hearts are in Mexico with our people but we're doing our best as God helps us to leave that in His hands. We are thanking Him many times a day for answered prayer, His touch on Logan, and for how He is working this for our good. It doesn't feel good to Logan or to us, but we know that whatever draws us closer to Him and conforms us more into the image of His dear Son is good, indeed.
Again, I want to say thank you for the tremendous prayer support. We have felt carried by your prayers many times during this ordeal. When we feel so weak, God's people are fighting the battle for us. Thank you.
Oh, and how could I forget this? Grandma Sankey arrived last night to spend a few days with us! We're so excited to get to see her! Of course, we have to share her with Uncle Steve, Aunt Beth, and Kent. Or are they sharing her with us?...smiles...either way, I know we're going to have a good time.
