Update 5/7/10

07 May

Ok.  So today I am feeling a bit better than yesterday.  My muscles are sore, but not the gripping pain from yesterday.  The plan is that I am going to go back up to 20mg of prednisone and stay at 175 of Imuran.  I am going to have blood work on Monday and then see Dr. Gilkeson on next Friday!!!  Then we will be able to make a decision.  I miss Jacob and the kids, but everyone is taking this in stride.  God is continuing to be true to His promises and His character.  He has given us the grace that we need in this moment and we are still praising Him for His perfect timing and care.  He has given me a wonderful doctor in Dr. Gilkeson and he is on top of everything.  We are all working together to get me back with the family and serving the Ticos!!   This is a unique time for our family and I am praising God for the opportunities He has given us to praise Him and shine for Him and experience Him during all of these trials.  I have no room for complaints.  All praises to Him!  Please continue to pray for us.  Love to all, Court

      Thank you Mike! You have no idea how much I needed that encouragement this morning!! That is so my goal – to focus on Him and not all of this other stuff! You and your precious family are so special to us! Thanks for always standing by us and being there for us! 🙂 God is using you greatly in His mission to Irazu too! 🙂 Love you all, Court
