I just thought I'd let you know that my dad is still in the hospital and has "officially" (kinda sorta) been diagnosed with MS now. The treatment I mentioned the doctors would be giving him for his symptoms in one of my previous posts is called plasmapheresis. His doctor thinks that with 10 days of this treatment and a few days in rehab afterward, he will get better. They're aiming to have him home by the superbowl (which I just learned is next Saturday, February 7th.) :) He started the plasmapheresis on last Tuesday and right now he's not doing very well. He's in a lot of pain all over his body and feels extremely weak, along with his other symptoms as well. Some friends of ours took Sister #1 and I to visit my parents at the hospital tonight. That was really nice, but it is really hard seeing Daddy lying so miserably in that hospital bed. Please pray for there to be improvement soon and also about a staph infection the doctors found in his blood yesterday. We think that might possibly be the cause to all of the pain in his body.
We continue to trust in God for all things! To Him be all glory, honor, and praise!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths sraight."
