Day +699 - Things Change So Quickly

I'm glad we got out of the chiropractor's office (I'm having a foot problem) before David started throwing up. God blesses me with the foresight to have what we need in the car to help him when things don't go well. I won't go into detail, but he provided the extra help I needed today. Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement. I'm feeling a lot better compared to when I sent out the following email today, but David has a 101 temp and cannot still keep anything down.

Would you please pray for David? 1-1/2 weeks ago he had a GI problem and got over it without a hospital visit. However, today he is showing the same GI problem. He is loosing everything from both ends. I'm not sure if it's coincidence but the problem occurred both times after he ate feta cheese, which is supposed to be ok for him to eat. He'll see the doctor on Thursday for a regular visit, if not sooner if he does not improve. He is thirsty but cannot keep any water down. He insists I give him water, so I do. It keeps him hydrated. I'm fairly confident he will recover quickly this time, however, I'm finding it emotionally hard today to watch him suffer for this long (all his life) and endure everything. He is such a good boy, hardly complains, and just puts up with everything so gracefully. I'm so afraid his overall health will never be the same and things will not end positively, as I'm sure you can understand.

The girls are doing well today and keeping themselves busy while I help David. Unfortunately, when he is not well their lives are disrupted, for example, Ariella cannot go to her regular gymnastics class today.

In tears,

Aimee and Michael McNally
