Here we go again...

Just got home from taking Kaitlyn to the doctor, where they confirmed that she is in the midst of her THIRD bacterial infection. (Considering the fact that she's only 7 months old, that's insane. The doctors can't even believe it.) So more antibiotics, and a referral to an immunologist to find out what the heck is wrong with her immune system.

I'm so exhausted from dealing with her constant infections. I feel so helpless in that I can't just magically make them go away, and that she keeps getting them. I feel hopeful about seeing the immunologist, but at the same time afraid of what they'll find. Being born with an immune disorder is kind of a big deal.

Soooooo, that was today. I'm keenly aware today of the fact that God knows, and I don't, and that my kids truly are in His hands!

I'll put Kaitlyn back on my prayer list. Maybe it is just a random thing that she ended up with three infections.

Praying for you. A lot. Prayers for you to sleep and not be anxious. Prayers for healing and strength. "I trust in YOUR word." Ps. 119:42

God is in control, even when life seems out of control. Poor little Kaitlyn, very scary. Makes my worries seem so small! Give her kisses for us! b

oh no! I'm so sorry! Henry only has the common cold, and it's so sad as a mommy to feel so helpless. I know how you feel about the specialist. You want to know what's going on, but only if it's a "good" what's going on. When all the stuff with Hen's heart was happening, I wanted desparately to see the specialist...so that he could tell me everything was alright! Hang in there, you're in our prayers. At least she's the happiest kid around in spite of her little troubles! :)
