New Update Picture

He looks sick. In the last couple pictures he is miserable, and I also recently recieve pics with a nasty runny nose from about a month ago. In most cases, a runny nose and a cold wouldn't be a problem. But for Asher, it turns ugly. Especially when it lingers. He is very anemic and has been since a baby. They (at the O) do take care of him and understand that his frequent colds cause him to go to the hospital. So I know they are watching this. But please pray that his body is staying strong. He was actually looking the best I've seen him throughout the summer and fall months. Last spring he got so sick he needed a transfusion, and I think that is the reason he did so well after. But a blood transfusion is not something I want him to have again in Haiti. Please remember to pray for our little peanut...

Praying for little Asher. Prayed for strength in his body, health, and for God to build up his blood.

I'll be praying for your cute little peanut to be healed soon...there seem to be lots of sad little eyes this month too, and that makes this wait so hard. You just want to snuggle them up!

Any chance they will prescribe him some iron supplements for the anemia? Or are they already? The kind Kenson is on are an oral medicine he takes twice a day. Just wondering.

I was told he was unhappy in this picture because an american doctor was taking the pictures...but I thought the January pictures were from the american doctor. I'm having a feeling, since both pictures were sent so close together, that this months photo was taken before lasts months, or at least very close together. So Even if he wasn't feeling well, it would have been a short time, not a month as I originally thought.

That does make me feel better...because the pics Kayla took were also around the same time...

Terry - Oh he does look sad, but hearing the news about who was taking the pic does make sense. Kaylin would probably do the same thing. Praying for God's continued protection of your son during this heartwrenching wait for you all. Love ya!
