Happy Birthday Dear!

Yesterday was my husby's 24th birthday. I made him roast, potatoes, and carrots for dinner then we took Dillon to a couple in our church for them to babysit him for a few hours. Josiah and I went to a theatrical production of "A Christmas Carol" in Allentown. It was very good and it was nice to get away for a little bit. On the way back to get Dillon I really wanted a hot fudge sundae from McD so we got cheeseburgers and ice cream and ate it on the way.

Dillon only had 1 big seizure (10 minutes) and maybe 2 little ones yesterday but so far today he had one at 2 am, 5 am, and 1 pm (none of which seemed to last more than a couple of minutes). The biochemist said since we are seeing improvement he is pretty sure it is working that we just need to give it more time to fully kick in. This makes sense as I have been told natural things can take up to six weeks to take full effect. Natural medicine is not as harsh as the drugs which are therefore "effective" more quickly.

Please continue to pray that the seizure will stop - SOON! I was feeling so excited yesterday that he made such improvement but today I am a little down again since he has had a few more. I guess it could be a bit of a roller coaster until it takes full effect. Also, it may be a little early to start worrying about this but: please pray for full cooperation from the neurologist when I tell him what he have been doing. If this stuff works - I will want to try to lower the drugs he is on so please start praying that the doctor will be understanding to this.

Tiffany know we've been in constant prayer concerning Dillon for improvement and just to strenghten them as a couple too. We love them both and know that God knows what is best. "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understandings." Proverbs 3:5 and "The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him." Lam. 3:24. These two verses have brought me through my lowest the past couple of weeks. He has comforted me. Despite of the unanswered results, HE is all I ever need and hope for (and hope ON!) Cause I am human I can be easily be pressed...but I'm thankful I can stop...pray...listen...and he gently speaks to me....calmly. Yes the situation or problem may still exist but He deals with things in his timing and ways which are not ours.

Love your Sista in Christ and Chocolate Brother,

So WHERE is the baby's first Christmas update?? And the picture of Dillon under the tree? With his first present?? Or with his Grandparents...all four of them? :) Just kidding! Perhaps you didn't take those, but we would like a recap of his first Christmas, when you get time, of course! :)
