Doctors love my family!!!

Well, we're keeping lots of doctors in business these days. Between Karsynn and myself, we've had 3 doctor's visit in 2 days. Karsynn had a 6 mo. follow-up with her ENT who put her tubes in back in April. He says her ears look great, so no worries there. Thank you God! We also decided it was time to switch Karsynn's regular doctor. The one she has been seeing does what he can for her, but we felt she needed to be seen by a regular Pediatrician, since she's staying so sick. Well, that was a good idea. She saw Dr. Taylor, who wants to send her to an Allergist. She really thinks Karsynn's problems are allergy related. So, we'll call Monday for yet another appointment. As for myself, I've had to see the orthopedic doctor because I thought I had done something to my hip. Come to find out, after some tests, it's not my hip, it's my back. Well, at least that's what they think. I have an MRI done this Thursday to find out for sure, but he x-rays showed nothing wrong with my hip. Anyway, "these are the days of our lives." Say a prayer that we all get well soon.

We just returned home from a long day of tailgating at the UK Football game with friends. GO CATS!!! They beat WKU tonight, so we're off to a great start this season. Now comes the real test. We start SEC play now, so we'll see how that goes. We love this time of year!!! Troy and I are HUGE UK fans! Any sport, any time!!!! I'll try to post some updated pics of Karsynn soon. She's getting so big!

We're Feeling Better...FINALLY!

Karsynn is feeling much better, thank God! She is finally back to her rowdy little self. Thank you for all the prayers!!! We really appreciate them. Not much to report on, other than improved health. Karsynn is talking up a storm nowadays. You never know what she's going to say next. I think she's showing us signs of being ready to potty train. She's beginning to go and get a diaper and wants to be changed. I think we'll try over Christmas Break to tackle that one. We have new friends that are currently in China adopting their daughter, Alyzabeth An. She is from Karsynn's same orphanage in Nanchuan. She just turn 2, so she's having a difficult time adjusting to her new life. Please pray that things will continue to improve for all of them. They are getting better each day, so I know things will be just fine. If you'd like to follow their journey, then you can find their link under My Favorites on my website. I think it's listed as Another Nanchuan Girl. She's a real cutie! She reminds me a bit of Karsynn.

My Big Girl...

Our baby isn't a baby anymore. She's getting so big and so independent! In just a few short days, she'll be 22 months old. YIKES!! Where does time go? She's going through some very tough times right now, especially at night. She isn't sleeping through the night, and I fear, may actually be having Night Terrors. She wakes up thrashing and screaming and nothing soothes her, not even Mama, whom she prefers at night. Please pray that whatever is going on subsides soon. Please pray that God gives her peace of mind and heart. I know she's worn out and so are Daddy and I. We're all exhausted! I've contacted a pediatrician in Lexington, so hopefully she can shed some light on what's going on. I, know, however, that God can take care of this minor bump in the road.
