This week, we only had to drive up to L.A. 2x. With every visit, there’s lab work. As Timothy gets older, it seems like his veins are more accessible. Only one poke today :). And he never complains. Never. After we came home, we received a phone call from the nurse with his results… everything is great! To hear those words, came instant joy and thanksgiving. His sed rate is back to normal. And the rest of his counts are good! This simple and quick conversation completely changed my mood today. Praise God! Thank you, everyone for your continual prayers for Timothy and our family. Thank you!
Here’s a video of Timothy talking… notice the squeaky voice? It’s either this or a booming low tone.
Just in case you are wondering what T is saying… his response to my questions:
T: me, too. me, too. see.
T: I play ipad.
T: umma, see. can’t see.
Another video: Kids are singing “Jesus Loves Me”. Notice Timothy’s mouth… how he accentuates the last word in each line. And when he gets to the word “belong”, he tries so hard to get the word out that he ends up spitting :).
Towards the end of the song, he is looking at himself in the mirror when he looks away.
As for the rest of us, we have been quite busy. Claire started preschool this week. She enjoys school very much, but was quite tired. With each drop off, I remind and repeat the importance of washing hands and not putting anything in her mouth. I even tell her not to play with anyone who might be sick… maybe a bit paranoid? And of course with every pick up, she has to wash up. Here’s Claire at school: (and me in the reflection :))
As for Daniel and I, we were able to go out on a “date” for the first time in a long time. We enjoyed a movie and dinner together. It was nice just the two of us :).
