Quick update on things here

Over the last couple of days we have started to see Joshua having some lower numbers (80s and 90s).  Not technically "low", but pretty close.  His goal is to be closer to 200.

This morning, we planned to start our first day of school.  The kids got new school things last night and we had planned to go out to eat this morning as per our family tradition.  We got up and were getting going with our day when Joshua says that his stomach hurts.  I take him upstairs and so he can lay down and rest.  The pain gets worse for him and within half an hour, he is sick.  Again.  :-(  He threw up several (3) times and then fell asleep for a couple of hours. 

He seemed to feel much better after sleeping.  He stayed up in the bedroom for the rest of the day though without complaining.  I know he did some good reading and a little bit of math. 

The rest of the kids started school and had a productive (albeit slow) day.  More on all of that later. 

Please pray for health for Joshua.  He told me his stomach hurt again at bedtime.  I hope we are going to see this as a trend.  Planning to email his doctor later tonight - and then hopefully head to bed soon.
