For those following our strep throat saga, we have no carrier! Both boys apparently have something in their spit that looks enough like strep to make a positive result with a rapid test, but doesn't grow when the samples are sent for cultures. It is very likely that Thing1's previous sore throats have just been viruses that would have run their course anyway. From now on we will send all samples for cultures. Hopefully this will cut down on the amount of antibiotics they have to take. Praise the Lord!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take." Proverbs 3:5-6
Ways you can pray:
- That PrincessO would stay with our family, but above all that God's will would be done, and that we would accept it no matter what.
- If her home should be elsewhere that God prepares those people even now for her. That He would continue to protect her from the dangers of her Birthmom's poor choices.
- Pray for our new caseworker to be bold and confident in her decisions. That she would continue to learn her job quickly, and use wisdom in all of her recommendations.
- Pray for all of us as we are still settling into our new routine. I had some huge frustrations and added work handed to me this week, and am very stressed about it. I need to handle things with grace and boldness. I also need good time management skills in order to do even an adequate job.
