It's been 37 days and Luke is still not doing better, we find comfort in knowing that God has a Plan!

I would love to sit down tonight and tell you all that Luke is doing great but alas, it is not so. Luke is not doing good tonight, no not one bit, he sounds terrible and has been alarming like crazy. He's been on oxygen for the last few days again, not a lot during the day, but quite a bit a night. He did seem to be doing a bit better a few days ago, but it seems whenever we think he has turned a corner for the good, he's right back to were he was at the beginning of this sickness.

He's not the only child that has been sick, Ezekiel, Lily and Isaiah have all been sick the last few days. I'm happy to say that Ezekiel seems to be completely over the bug that he had, Lily is still complaining about a stomach ache and now Isaiah seems to be coming down with something. Tonight I was thanking the Lord that all this did not hit us during the Holidays, it would of been so hard to go through all this without the help of Amy. I wonder at times if Luke just keeps catching whatever is going around again and again.

Please will you once again put Luke back into your prayers, we are desperate for a healing touch from Jesus. It is so draining to go through this long season that doesn't seem to end, I know God has not abandoned us, in fact last night I came across this scripture and it really ministered to my heart: "I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out - plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I'll listen. When you come looking for me, you'll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else. I'll make sure you won't be disappointed." Jeremiah 29:11 -14 (MSG) This scripture is full comfort and help during this very trying time, it's hard to remember at times like this that God sees the bigger picture than what is happening right this minute, but I know that He does and I have to trust Him. To learn to trust Him and know that He will not abandon us is so amazing, it can be quite a challenge at times, but I know that's exactly where He wants us to be.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Suzi

I am so sorry Luke is not feeling better. I have a dumb question, if Luke gets a stomach bug can he throw up, or does it just have to churn around in his tummy?

Wow, it has been a quite a bug. Justine got this way in 2004. She was in and out of the hospital several times. Justine rarely was in the hospital. In 2005 we had to make the choice of the trach. It was not a choice we ever thought we would have to make. Because we were told it would just make suctioning easier. But her trachea had started collapsing and obstructing the airway. She got to the point she too was on lots of oxygen. Her lungs were not inflating properly and adelectisis was causing fevers. Since then it has been a complete turn around. Before that my husband was afraid that she was coming to the end of her life. It had got that bad. I am not saying that is what Luke needs I was just telling about the long road with Justine. I hope he gets over this soon for you and his sake. You had asked where we live. We live in southern california. About an hour east of Disneyland. Anyway I will keep praying. Jodi
