A Small Update

Thank you all so much for your caring and for your prayers for the kids. I meant to update sooner. These days seem to go by so quickly. The phone is ringing, ringing with results and more results, negatives and positives. wink Thankfully we’ve made a little headway. It turned out that the aching joints and swelling and the rash were from strep. In all the years with the kids growing up, we never had strep so I am not well-versed in these symptoms. Bad Mom! Jacob did get strep last year, but his symptoms then were much different, like a bad flu. Well, that is neither here nor there. At least we found out, and they are being treated.

Molly still is not feeling well daily, mostly just the nausea or stomach pain. Otherwise she feels healthy, but I am sure it takes its toll. She is finding it hard to concentrate and to write, and I know that is frustrating to her. BUT. We have an appointment with a specialist next week. So I just PRAY we will finally get some answers. After six months of this she will never ever take lack of stomach problems for granted again. Trials are hard, especially ongoing or lengthy ones, but they do yield a certain benefit.


  1. Hi Pam,
    I am so glad you are starting get some answers! I will continue to pray for speedy recovery time and that things go well at the specialist.
    Hope you have a nice weekend!
    Love & hugs

  2. Hey girl, glad you are finally getting your questions answered. I pray that things go well next week. I know how Molly feels with the stomach issues, I have dealt with them over the years,and it isn't fun. And it does take its toll.

    Have a super weekend.

    to these health issues- I am sure it's been a very hard time for them and for you and your husband.

    Pray you get more good results next week.
    blessings, Joann
