We've kept our July thread going for a while, but I thought a fresh one might be nice. Bring us new prayer requests, update old ones and share praises as well!

I'm going to start with a praise regarding Tim's latest appointment with the pediatrician. Even before giving Tim a quick physical exam, the doctor said we were making progress and to keep up the good work. When he felt Tim's stomach after he'd asked me some intro questions, he was impressed and said it was "remarkable" progress. Yay!

We still need to continue the daily laxatives until the next appt in three months. I admit there's some disappointment that this will go on for a long time, but the encouragement and compliments from the doc definitely helped. I pray there's no lasting dependence on laxatives, since there's a warning about that on one of the boxes. (He takes two different kinds of medication, one with breakfast and one with lunch.) And it's true that this is definitely helping finish up potty training, since he's learning the signals his body gives him about getting to the bathroom pronto!

Other praises:

- Ben's vocabulary is growing well, though for most words he's just got the beginning sound (and in that he's just a little behind Tim, the late talker). And I've learned to give a short daily nap in order to have a decent wake-up call - Ben is definitely a morning person like me!

- My mum had vertigo problems starting in late spring, but after a CT scan, the doctors determined she has inflammation in her inner ear. Definitely a better prognosis than mini-strokes as they'd feared. Whew! I think she'll be on medication and have stability exercises. (Must research online because the doc didn't give Mum a lot of info at the time, tsk tsk.)

I have another prayer request...the doctor still doesnt know whats goin on with me. I'm hoping he is able to find out real soon...I had to give yet another urine sample because the one I gave last week was contaminated. How it got contaminated, I really dont know...but I really want some answers as to whats goin on with me. Also my allergies have been really acting up and its just very frustrating lol

Becca - Thats awesome to hear about Tim's progress!

Praying for your sister as she goes through the testing and for you as the one being strong for her.

Boo to giving another sample, but I hope it gives them the answer and you get prompt treatment.

Yuck for allergies! I finally cleaned my car because I noticed my eyes hurting when I drove and suspected dust and dog hair was the problem. Seems better, but I still have occasional problems when I'm in the house all day. Can't wait for fall when I can open up the house for longer periods of time. Until then, I'll try cleaning up more and dusting!

I will be praying for your sister. I have been through a scare like that myself. I had a stereotactic biopsy and everything. I am so glad she is not going alone. It is best to have someone else there.

I usually just take loratadine (generic kind of Claritin) and it does the job. Haven't tried other kinds yet.
