Luke continues to improve, once again thank you for your prayers!

Just wanted everyone to know that Luke seems to be doing better and better everyday, thank you so much for your prayers. Though I don't think he is quite at 100% yet, he still seems to be miserable at times, but not complaining like he was two nights ago. He is still congested and needing to cough out some thick gunk, but at least he is doing it on his own for the most part. It's been warming up for us here in WA again and while we do enjoy having a warm summer, it not so easy on Luke to be in the heat. Last night he was on no extra oxygen and tonight he is on a little bit. Please join with us in praying that this will be the last bout of pneumonia he will have this year or for that matter forever.

This week has been a very busy week, Isaiah, Ezekiel and Lily are going to a VBS at the church where Natalie is getting married. They are having a great time, I'm so glad that they have this opportunity, though it's been a bit challenging for me to get enough sleep, but I'm doing fine, just having to rely on God's supernatural strength this week. We have been planning a camping trip leaving this Friday for a week, once again I hope and pray that Luke will stay healthy enough for us to go. I will be staying up there with the kids after Gordy comes back to work this next week.

We have been looking at houses, it's been hard because I really don't like the idea of moving. It's not that I love my home, but it is my home and we've been comfortable in it for over 20 years now. We think we've found a home that we like but it needs some finishing work done on it. We are praying whether this one could be our home, it has some features that we absolutely will need in our new home. It has a master bedroom and small office/bonus room on the first floor which would be perfect for Luke's room. It also doesn't have any carpet in it right now, it only has tile and pergo floors in it, which would be good for Luke, Gordy and Isaiah's allergy problems. The yard is completely over grown with tall grass, blackberry bushes, weeds, rocks and would be a major project. Anyway I say all that to say we need prayer for wisdom in whether we should pursue it or not. Of course we would need to sale our home first and it needs some work before we could put it on the market, which means we would need the extra energy to get the things done to it to get it sold. I guess the reason I'm sharing this with y'all is so that you would be praying that God will direct us to His perfect home, in His perfect timing and that we will have his wisdom in knowing exactly what to do and when to do it.

Need to sign off I'm having a hard time staying awake and it will be another early morning tomorrow. I hope that you are enjoying your summer.

Be blessed,
Luke's Mommy Suz

I am excited for your camping trip. How far away is it from your house? Is it the mountain? All of you will go? Hope you have a great time....

SO glad that sweet Luke is feeling better - poor little guy! Pneumonia can really wipe folks out and I'm praying that he will be back to 100% (and stay there) very soon.

We'll also be praying about the house decisions.

Been praying for direction as to where God would have you live and selling your present home. Looking forward to the answer he has for you. Tom & Pam

I hope you got to go on your camping trip. It sounds like you could use the time away from all the hustle and bustle. I too have a 2 story house with steps into it. We put a ramp in the front and a stair chair inside last year. I know they can also have things for the outside too but we just had a few steps outside. They are relatively inexpensive and was much easier than relocating since our house is paid off. I think we paid about 3500 for it installed. It was one of the best things we ever did. I can not believe I carried her up and down the steps for all those years. It took me actually falling down the last couple of steps with her in my arms twice before I finally looked into it. Fortunately I was able to protect her from getting hurt. I will continue to pray for Luke and I hope he is feeling better.
