A little fussy

Jameson has been a little fussy for the past 2 day. This brings about fear for us because the last time he was this fussy we were in the hospital the next day. During dressing changes today, he had the start of some infection on both ankles. This is probably why he is being so fussy. His ankles have yet to improve since birth. They are still without new skin. The last 2 infections Jameson has had started with his ankles. Please pray that his ankles improve and that new skin will grow really fast.

I was telling Todd, just last night, it would be easier if it was bad all of the time or either good all of the time. Because what is really hard is the extreme emotional roller coaster we are on. Never knowing what tomorrow holds. That just reminds me of the verse that say we are not even promised tomorrow. We are walking second by second hoping that each day gets easier or God will give us the peace to walk through whatever He has for us that day.

I should be talking with the surgeon Monday and setting up a time this week for hernia surgery. Please pray that Jameson stays healthy enough for surgey and all of the doctors handle Jameson's condition with the utmost care.

Thank you for All of you prayers,
Melisa and Todd

Melisa and Todd,
Just got an e-mail from Jane Slusher regarding Jameson and wanted to let you both know we are praying for your whole family and the doctors. Todd it was great to talk to you a few months ago. As your "old" H.S. coach it is so satisfying to know you guys are trusting in the Lord and being a great testimony to many through this trial. Thanks for your faithfulness!
In Christ, Joel Carlson

Todd/Melisa - really sorry to hear that the infection has returned to JT's ankles. Will pray that it is minimal and will not require a return trip to the hospital for him -that he will begin to show continued healing vs this up and down roller coaster.

Love you all, praying for you

You are so much closer to where God wants us all to be than those of us who think we know what we are doing tomorrow or where we will be! Thank you for being our inspiration to get there in the midst of your trial! We love you so much and are praying without ceasing for Jameson's ankles, infection, surgery, and your family's stamina and strength!
