We had an awesome turnout two Saturdays ago for Isaiah's fundraiser. A HUGE thank you to Holly Boykin for organizing everything. Thank you to all who came and gave generously from your hearts. We cannot even begin to express our gratitude. We also had a huge miracle happen when several families stepped forward and provided a new washer/dryer for us. God has been so good to us and continues to provide for us even when we are not faithful in asking for His help. We continue to walk this journey with the strength from your prayers.

We were recently back down at CHOP Main for several appointments. Pulmonary was satisfied with Isaiah's improvement, but will continue to monitor him for awhile. We saw another orthopaedic specialist, Dr. Lee, about Isaiah's left arm. He was incredibly supportive and understanding and wished he could give us better news. But, the reality is there is nothing he can do to improve the left arm. It is what it is, and he was very happy with how Isaiah uses it. Pray that as Isaiah continues to grow, that we will know how to encourage him to use his differences for the glory of God.

We also revisited the feeding clinic. I think this will be the last time we go down there for the clinic. They were not much help and pretty much shrugged their shoulders because they have no idea why Isaiah doesn't eat or why he throws up daily. It was a very frustrating meeting. We are going to look into some other feeding clinics, like Good Shepherd and Hershey. Please pray for wisdom as we choose.

At the moment we have a need for help on Tuesday mornings. I go to a women's Bible study every Tuesday morning. We are entering flu season and we don't want to expose the boys to any more germs than we have too. The times would be from 8:30am-12pm. The boys are very easy and Isaiah does NOT have to be hooked up to anything while I am gone. Please let me know if anyone can help.

I know some of you may still be interested in ordering from 31 Gifts to support Isaiah's fundraiser. Holly Boykin will still be taking orders until the end of the month. All of her profits she is donating to Isaiah. To place an order, you can go online to her website at, or you can call her directly at 267-375-9171. Thank you again for all of your help and support.
