Thank you to everyone who has been praying for Taite. We continue to need wisdom as we figure out our next few weeks.
Taite has been having a lot of difficulty eating and drinking anything. Even her spit was not going down. For a 5′ 5″ girl her weight has dropped to a scary 80 pounds. We finally took her in for some tests and then were sent to a Children’s hospital where she underwent some more tests, some under sedation and some fully awake. Taite has been a very brave young lady. Bravery makes a parent cry. We have been on a roller coaster of hopeful highs to despairing lows. We are now in waiting pattern for a call from the doctor with some results and probably a referral to a surgeon.
For right now we are thrilled to all be back at home. Hotels are only nice if you’re on vacation. And we had thought our trip would be a quick 24 hours so we were running low on clean underwear and socks.
It was really terrific to go to Matthias’s basketball game today, and even better that they won and are still undefeated after their fourth game! He had a cheering crowd of three sisters, one brother, two brother-in-laws, six nieces and nephews, and a set of parents. I think that’s why they won the game.
