I have a friend who I think is completely amazing. She juggles so much, and her family is beautiful. I thought you guys should read this…and this is where it all began, if you want to read why this is proving the goodness of God! Boy Felicity, this made my day!
I also have another friend that has entered the blogging world! WHOO HOO! I have a special prayer request for you guys for her and her son, Carson. Here is what she emailed me, and what my prayer is right now. Could you join me in praying for him? This isn’t just “lactose intolerant,” it is pretty serious.
Hi friends & family,
We wanted to send out this message to ask for prayer for Carson. Carson has Duarte Galactosemia (a rare, genetic, metabolic disorder where his body doesn’t have the enzymes to process galactose/milk) and starting this Saturday, he will go on a 10 day milk trial to see if his body will start making the enzymes to process galactose. We’re hopeful that the tests will come back saying that he can start drinking milk based formula and not have dietary restrictions when we start trying baby food. We are also hopeful that this milk trial won’t hurt him in any way by causing damage to his kidneys, liver, or brain.
God give them wisdom to know what to look for and when the testing should be done. Give Jeff and Lori peace that passes all understanding in their situation with their precious little miracle. Give the dr.s wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. Guide their hands, guide their thoughts and guide the testing. In all of this let every person that Lori and Jeff come in contact with see Jesus. Give them direction to ask the right questions and be persistent, even when they think they are being annoying to the Drs. I pray that the drs never give the idea to Jeff and Lori that they are! Let words be clear. Again I pray for a peace of mind.
God, most of all, I ask for healing. Carson is a treasured gift from You that You created to be whole and perfect in every way. I pray that you start rebuilding those enzymes now so that when this trial begins on Saturday they will be there to process the milk that he eats so he can be whole, healthy and happy. Because really, Jesus, you created ice cream to be eaten and Carson is going to need some when he gets older! Jesus, you have the power to make these enzymes to process the galactose for Carson. It doesn’t have to make sense to the Drs or to us, we just know and have the confidence that you can do this. Please show your power to us all through Carson. Jesus we trust You. We glorify You for the life of Carson and what goodness you have brought us even in this struggle and trial.
God is good!
