Prayer Request PLEASE
Thu, 05-29-2008 - 3:55pm

HI! I got Ryan's test back for his lead. In Feb. it was 10 points and it seem that everything was going good the results seem to be going down quick. And the state would leave us alone. But today his results was 16 points!! I have no idea what is going on the only lead we have in the house is in the window wells and they have been closed all winter and he doesn't go anywhere but to church and they are ok. So, i'm crying all day trying to find out what is going on the state is now coming over tomorrow which I hate. I painted with a paint that is suppose to help the lead in the paint. But I got rid off their toys I just threw them away in the trash and I still don't know what is happening. He is on the iron diet taking iron pills he has been prayed over and with oil half of his life has been with lead and we dont know what to do.

Aww Katie!

I am so sorry this is happening. I can't imagine what you are going through. With all that lead paint scare from the childrens toys last year, we got rid of all Chloe's thomas trains, Dora and Diego toys, half of her puzzles...and a ton of other things.

Its so scary. I will pray that they can find the source and stop this misery. (((HUGS)))

Don't lose heart, you will find the solution.

Sweetheart, I'll step up my prayers for the little man. I"m so sorry! I just knew it was gonna be a good number this time. I'm floored. Like Karen said though, you just never know where the lead is anymore. It seems to be in everything now. It could be in their sippy cups if they are plastic or even on a plastic outdoor slide. It's terrible that we have to constantly worry about detoxing the environment around our kids. ((HUGS)) I'll keep in prayer. Don't lose heart. God is mighty and wonderful and will get you thru this.

Your sister in Christ,

Katie I am so sorry to hear that. I think of Ryan often and will continue to pray they find the source and you are able to really get him on the road to recovery.

I stand in agreement with everyone, Katie. God knows what the source of this is, and He'll direct you to it in due time. Don't lose heart -- the moment we do is the moment we're THAT close to the breakthrough!
