Dillon and JayDonn Updates

Dillon is still having whatever problem he is dealing with. I have called the doctor, but of course he called back during the short time I stepped out to go to the Chiropractor. I will speak with him tomorrow. I had a weight check done at the doctors office this afternoon and Dillon is back down to 10lb 2oz. I had them weigh him on both scales so I am sure it is right, but not sure of why he lost 14 oz in 15 days. This is another I will tell the Neurologist when I talk to him tomorrow to see if we should start talking about changing seizure drugs or not. Thank you for all those who prayed - this defiantly isn't over so please keep praying for God to give Josiah and the doctors wisdom. I fell like pounding my head into a wall....I need God to give the wisdom to Josiah so all I have to do is what he says. They say insanity is when you keep doing the same thing expecting different results...what is it called when you do everything you can different and get the same results? I think that is insanity too!
Wednesday I got a call from the doctor. My sugar came back at 160, it shouldn't have been above 135. So with the help of a lady from my parent's church (Thank you Mrs. A for all your help!) I started changing my diet and trying to be careful of the carbs I was eating. I went this morning for the 4 hour test. If my number would have been above 130 after fasting for 10 hours I would defiantly have gestational diabetes. My number came back at 80. So then I had to drink the orange sugar drink and give more blood an hour later, two hours later, and three hours later. I don't know those numbers yet. After each drawing I was getting more and more sick feeling and light headed, the lady said it is probably lack of food and that my sugar could actually be getting low. Sure enough as soon as I had some graham crackers and orange juice I felt much better. I am not sure if that means my numbers are where they should be or not. I should know in the next day or two if I do have it, but I will know for sure either way at my appointment on Thursday. Thursday they are doing another ultrasound. Since the blood work came back high at 17 weeks (when they thought he might have had spina bifida - which has been confirmed that he does not have it in case someone didn't know this already.) they have to check to make sure the placenta is working and that JayDonn is growing like he should be. I know I am getting bigger and I can feel him getting bigger and stronger so I am not worried, I am excited to get to see him again!

I'll let you know more when I know more. Thank you again for praying - I don't know if people understand how much it means to me to know that so many people all across this country and other countries are praying for my little boy, and for me! We are not going through this alone, sometimes it feels like we are, but we aren't everyone who prays for Dillon and loves Dillon is going through this to some degree with us. Thank you.

HI! Tiffany,

I read your mail, and I said, Praise the Lord that you didn't have any injury at deer&car accident!!
I pray for your car insurance situation.
We keep praying for your blood sugar getting normal, for Dillon's medication and much much gaining, and
for JayDonn. Whenever I tell my children about Dillon,Kotaro&Kei always pray for him before every meal.We are thinking of YOU ALL.
