Hello Dear Friends and Family,

We wanted to let you know that one of our friends, that we met on this amazing journey with Isaiah, contacted us to do a fundraiser for Isaiah through his photography business to help with our many expenses. If you remember, Mike Landis, took the first pictures of Isaiah right after he was born. Mike was with us during a very uncertain time and sacrificed his time and resources to take beautiful photos. We are incredibly thankful for Mike and his wife, Trish, who continue to support us.

To find out about Mike's fundraiser for Isaiah, please go to his blog site for further information. Thank you, Mike and Trish, for your love and support.

Also, please pray for us as we head back down to CHOP again on Sept. 21st. Isaiah has been having trouble swallowing food. He either chokes, gags, throws up, or just holds the food in his mouth refusing to swallow it. His Occupational Therapist has been working with him, but he has not progressed. It's frustrating, because it's just one more thing to follow-up on. Isaiah will meet with 4 different specialists. I am looking for someone to go down to CHOP with me. I know it is short notice. We would have to leave my house at 7:00 in the morning on Monday, and I don't know what time we would return. Please let me know if anyone is available. I would appreciate it.

Isaiah has recovered nicely from his surgery. We had a little set back in the beginning, due to an onset of diarrhea, but thankfully all of his tests came back negative. The doctors think Isaiah was probably sick due to the medication and the anesthesia. He is back to his usual self. Thank you to all who prayed. We will update you after he meets with the specialists. Isaiah has not been tested yet for Cystic Fybrosis. We have other things to take care of first...
