Samuel’s genetic test came back positive for him carrying the celiac gene. Am I surprised? No. It does help solidify the direction the doctors are taking. Answers are good.
In other more exciting news — he’s eating — after weeks of pushing away food! It is exciting to see him enjoy food again. He’s not absorbing much (the doctors told me what to watch for and how to tell), yet he’s still eating. I am just thankful that he’s eating and not in the tremendous pain that he was in for the last couple of weeks. Right now we need that intestinal tract of his to heal. Quickly. He’s so pale and lacks his full energy. But, he’s better. Getting recharged — bit by bit.
By the way — I wanted to update you tonight with news about the vehicle. And that makes 2 days with 2 posts. Life is busy right now…..:)
It was the battery. (Thank goodness.)
Todd met with a mechanic who checked the old (and very very dead ) battery and then replaced it with a new fully charged one. The mechanic worked outside in subzero temps — horrible weather conditions — but he was awesome and courteous and kind. I could hardly stand the cold when I drove it home so I can’t imagine working in that weather. (By the way, the heat did start to kick on when I pulled in the drive-way. ha ha ha)
So tonight I praise for Samuel’s returning appetite and recharged zest for food as well as the recharged (and new) battery. Thanks for the prayers. Truly.
