And the Answer Is… (plus some videos, too)

We got our Tb tests read late Wednesday afternoon.  (Thank you to all who prayed and checked in on us during my absence from the blog.)  Unfortunately, Conner tested postive for Tb, so we will go for a chest X-ray today to determine if he has active Tb.  He will also get his blood drawn to send off the special test (gold test) to determine if he could have latent Tb or if it was just a false positive.  Conner doesn’t have symptoms of Tb, and he had a chest X-ray during his hospital stay that didn’t indicate active Tb, so I’m not too concerned about it.  We do, however, need to be absolutely sure that Conner doesn’t have active Tb, as that could be life-threatening for Sawyer once he’s on Remicade.


None of this is a surprise to our Father, as He even knows the number of hairs on our heads.  Nothing gets by Him, and He loves Sawyer even  more than I do, so I have faith that He’s got a good plan in all of this.


And now, while we wait for X-rays and results, enjoy two videos of Cooper and Conner. BIG progress happening around here, folks!!!  God never ceases to amaze me.  Just a couple of weeks ago, Cooper was convinced his legs didn’t work *at all*.  He’s now pulling up, cruising, climbing—amazing difference in just a week or so!!!  Praise the One who has made this possible for Cooper!!!




And Conner is eating from a spoon!!!!!  I had pretty much given up on Conner ever eating anything from a spoon because  he was so defensive to anything near his mouth.  I continued to try pureed foods from a spoon for Conner, with hopes that one day he’d change his mind and decide the food was yummy.  Well, the day has come, friends!!!  Conner is eating yogurt from a spoon.  Huge accomplishment!!!  God is good!!!
