Family Camper

Long time no update, huh? Well, that is good news because I've had nothin' to tell ya! The boy is growing and overall doing pretty well. His current stats are 19.5 lbs and 28.5 inches. Will continues to have some issues with digestion and respiratory infections. But, Connie and Al have gotten pretty good at knowing when something isn't quite as it should be and getting Will in to see his pediatrician before major problems develop. Will's heart tests show no changes. While he still has heart issues, they are not getting any worse at this time.

However, the biggest news that we have to report is that Will was a first time Family Camper at Gull Lake Ministries! The week got off to a rough start with a trip to the ER the second day and then another trip to the pediatricians office a day or two later. But once Will got a couple doses of antibiotics to treat his lung infection, he was one happy camper! He enjoyed lots of attention from cousins, in-laws, out-laws, rednecks, etc. and he told all kinds of stories to anyone that would listen.

And the last bit of news is that Will will be going to Bronson for an overnight on Wednesday. They will be doing some GI testing and it will be best for everyone if it is done inpatient. Please pray that Will tolerates the testing well and that the results will give the doctors a definitive answer as to what is the best way to proceed with treating Will.
