I apologize for being such a poor blogger lately. Time and internet access has been liminted lately. As many of you now know, Joshua's recently suffered from a painful case of pancreatitis. His pancreas is hugely enlarged and inflamed. Enzyme levels which should normally be anywhere from 25-120 were 5,800. Today they're down to 1,800. The treatment is resting the pancreas by holding any food or drink and pain management. By now even Joshua who rarely feels it, is hungry. No one can eat in front of him, it would just be too cruel. We are still awaiting word from the GI as to what happens next, or how it began in the first place. I don't ever want to see him in so much pain again. It kills me.

We are asking for prayers for a speedy recovery and as with every set-back, that something productive come from all this.
