So we are putting one foot in front of the other over here.
Milla is about the same. She is progressing along and has had some hard times falling asleep due to her tremors becoming worse at bedtime (probably because her body is so fatigued by then). She also is occasionally waking up in the middle of the night because her tremors will start back up. So we are increasing one of her meds to combat that. We continue to see more weakness and spasticity in her body. But she remains the warrior that she is! She works so hard mentally and physically - and always with a smile - she is amazing.
Elle continues to have hard days lately as well. I'm hoping that a contributing part of her issues is due to the hand, foot, mouth infection she has right now. :( She is pretty miserable this week. But infection or not, we are increasing one of her seizure meds to see if her seizures, tremors, etc. decrease. Pray this virus clears up quickly and that the sores in her mouth will heal tonight as those sores are causing so much pain that she's having a hard time eating and a super hard time taking her meds. She's been crying most of the last 3 or 4 days...more than her norm/usual.
Update on Mrs. Melba: Her surgery went very well and the doctors think they got all the cancer out - pray that they really did! Thank you for praying for her. She still has a long, long road of recovery, but praise the Lord the surgery went well! And Milla has been adjusting well to school-without-Mrs. Melba. She (and I) had a hard time at drop-off the first couple of days without Mrs. Melba but we are both doing better. :) The kids in her classroom are giving her a little bit of extra love, and the teachers are working so hard to make sure she is taken care of and is happy. As I've said before, we are so thankful for Second Presbyterian Church's nursery, special needs class and PDO programs! They have loved us well.
Please continue to pray for strength, energy, wisdom and health for all of us! And thank you, as always, for your faithfulness in praying for us.

Come quickly, Jesus!!
Much love to you all!!
