we do not have any answers on Lainee and are still in close contact with Children’s in chicago each week concerning labs etc. thanks for checking in and asking after her
she’s doing well (and is well watched)
We’ve been in Michigan for much of the summer

Luke used his job money to buy a fishing pole~ I’m finally figuring out that if I make him use his own money the item is less likely to break. DUH

Luke this morning in the wet suit. I took him tubing , it sure was chilly today on the water!
It’s been kind of a challenging summer, as far as summers go. I want to remember that these children are all gifts, that I should feel honored to get to see God heal their little lives. But, it’s hard, and we’ve got plenty of issues rolling around with this group. I want to stay strong and focused on Christ, not the issues that I’m faced with.
I can almost hear His voice coaching me on, “keep running, runner!!! keep running, runner!”
