Steady Improvement

Here's the latest on Logan: He saw the Infectious Disease doctor again yesterday and he (Dr. Loja, who is taking Dr. Linsangan's patients until after her baby's born) was pleased with Logan's appearance. He really does look great. The infection under his eye has almost completely receded and the proptosis is hardly noticeable, also. Thank the Lord! However, since we've now had 2 recurrences of MRSA, the doctor wants him on another month at least of the antibiotic, Zyvox, and will also be keeping him on the antifungal therapy, Vfend. Since both of these are oral, we don't have to worry about needles for the time being, unless something else comes up which has been known to happen.
We believe the Lord is definitely touching Logan. Since he was annointed in the healing service at Sea Breeze Camp last Saturday, there has been slow but steady improvement. I know God is able to completely take this infection away. In the meantime, we're giving the medicine, waiting, hoping and praying.

Oh, good! So glad. I already checked your blog this morning once because I felt like you might update today.

Glad things seems to be going in the right direction right now. We will pray that this becomes a steady trend!

I love you!

Thank the Lord!
At breakfast this morning, Bryson said with excitement, "We will be going to see Marc and Melodie in a few days!" That totally came out the blue, but I wish it were true. He was disappointed when I told him that wasn't going to happen. :(

I am so thankful that Logan is improving. I have prayed and prayed for that little boy. He is so special to us and we love him very much. It is hard to see a child struggle with something so huge. Know that you are in my prayers and will continue to be there...forever.

Isn't God's grace amazing? If you would have know that you guys were going to have to go through all of this before it happened it would have seemed to be more than what you could handle. I think that is why we can't see into the furture. (smiles) I am so happy to hear that he is improving.

Love to all of you...

Loving all this good news this week! First, Ron, then my eye exam (long story), and now your little boy... and, a couple of weeks ago, a lady in our church got saved that people have been praying for for at least 20 years! God is doing great things, and proving that He truly is faithful to care for His people. Yes, He is good no matter what happens to any of us, but I sure enjoy seeing happy answers to prayer!

Thanks for your email about you trying to get me the words to that song that Marc and you sang...I'm anxious to practice it since we have only a FEW weeks left. =) I really appreciate you working on it for me! =)

Like others, Kathy and I are glad for the good news and hope that this is now the beginning of the end. I wonder who He's preparing you to bless.

Melodie,
So glad you did get to go to HS Camp. And thank the Lord that Logan is so much better. I know God is going to continue giving you grace.
