Praises & Prayers!

I don't know where to begin... lets start with the praises. Baden had a bit of a struggle two days post-op, but he is much better now! Also, Landon is fully recovered and at home Praise God! Isn't it wonderful to see the Lord at work!
Now for the prayer needs. Ana's update:
I spoke with the neurologist and the Neurontin (neuropathy medication) has been increased to 1,000mg a day from 750mg a day. We pray this works and her other meds do not have to be increased. We have a follow-up appointment in Charleston this Friday to make sure she has completely recovered from her most recent surgery. Lastly, we are still dealing with the bowel problem. One of Ana's specialist recommended a renowned Colorectal Center in Ohio. We have made contact with them and they are eager to help whether she need basic bowel management or the Malone procedure and bowel management. I will add a link over there on the left for those of you who want to know more about the Malone procedure. We are praying to get into the May clinic for bowel management. Yes, another trip... a trip to Cincinnati for a minimum of 9 days. We are concerned about the cost, but we know we have to do this. Ana is in a terrible amount of pain when having a bowel movement and the enemas are not getting the job done. Today marks 5 days since her last bowel movement last Thursday which was induced by an enema. We have been dealing with this for 16 months when her colon stopped working. Enough is enough, it is time for resolution. Please pray about this trip, pray for pain relief until this trip, pray for funds to make this trip possible, pray for these doctors who will be treating Ana. Thank you to all of you who pray for Ana every day... I know the Lord hears our prayers!
