We could not believe it when we received the call from our social worker at CHOP that Freddy's Footsteps approved the grant to replace the flooring in our home. We are just so grateful for the work our social worker, Megan, did on our behalf, and for the generosity of the grant program. We were so overwhelmed with trying to figure out a way to do the floors ourselves after all the damage from Isaiah's vomiting for the past 2 years. Now, we don't have to! PRAISE THE LORD!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! Construction/Destruction (or "struction" as Josiah says) has begun in our home. Please pray for grace, safety, and patience as we work on replacing the floors over the next month.
Another BIG praise---the bill that originally passed to charge additional co-pays to families that have children with disabilities has now been placed on hold. What a HUGE relief! Thank you to those who wrote to the local and state governments on our behalf and on the behalf of all the other children with challenges. This is a small victory in the midst of many battles, but significant none the less.
Isaiah has been enjoying being home---we all have. He still has occasional bad days with stomach pain and has lost weight again, but he continues to take small steps forward. This Wednesday we see his surgeon and pulmonologist. Pray that the visits go well and we can continue to find ways to make Isaiah's life healthier and less painful. Thank you again for all your love, prayers, support, meals, gifts, cleaning, and helping with our home. Your willingness to follow God's leading continues to give us the strength to take each day as it comes.
