Just a quick update to let everyone know that Alex's labs were MUCH improved yesterday. While his labs never look perfect, his liver was back to an "Alex normal" yesterday. We are so thankful for how well Alex has been doing over the last 8 months. After 9 months straight in the hospital, we have only had to be admitted 3 times since April! We pray that Alex continues on this stable path.
Once again Dad is coming next week. We are so happy that Dad is always willing to travel to see us. I desparately miss being close to my family. When Bruce and I were transferred to TX 6 years ago, it was with every intention of getting back to NC. Unfortunately because of Alex's health that is simply not possible. We have such a good team of doctors here and the medicaid here is one of the best in the country. So we treasure the times that we get to spend with family. I love to watch Alex interact with them and the loving relationships they have formed.
So Dad is here until the 16th and then we are off to Houston for a scheduled trip. We will squeeze 5 appointments in 3 days! We will be busy to say the least. We are excited to have some fun and fellowship with the Knight family. They so graciously open their home to us. Alex loves playing with Lauren and Samuel. Missy and I revel in the comfort of our friendship where our crazy life is "so normal"!
As always we ask that you continue to pray for Buggy's health and Brucey's job search.
