Update on Daron & Taylor

I know that lately all of my posts have been about what I am going through. So, I decided to update you on how Daron & Taylor are doing. If you have any specific questions on either of them, please feel free to leave them in the comment section & I will try to answer them.

Update on Daron
Daron is enjoying his time at Laurels of Kent. He has a new roommate now & they are two peas in a pod. They have the same crazy sense of humor, they enjoy watching the same shows, they are interested in the same things. His roommate makes sure that Daron goes to the dining room for lunch & supper. Most days Daron has breakfast in bed & then relaxes until the nurses get him out of bed & dressed. The administrator of the nursing room turned one of the day rooms into a man cave for the guys at the nursing home. Daron & his roommate got to help with some insight & some decorating. They enjoy hanging out down there as well.

Daron had an MRI done at the end of August. We met with his neurologist on October 11 to go over the results. So far, there are no changes to the MS. Physically he is still declining - his legs are the biggest issue for him. No changes are being made to his medication right now & he will continue to receive the infusion every 4 weeks. I am currently trying to get those moved to Grand Rapids so that he won't have to travel so far each month. Once they are moved, he will only have to see the neurologist every 6 months, unless there are changes to his health.

Prayer Requests for Daron
Please pray that we will be able to get the infusions moved to Grand Rapids soon. It will be easier on Daron & he won't loose an entire day for them.

Please pray that he will feel God's peace in his life each day. He is struggling with being so young & having to be in a nursing home.

Update on Taylor
Taylor is now in 3rd grade - that's crazy to think about. He will be turning 9 in a few months & is looking forward to that. He is having some behavior issues, but we are working through them as best we can. He was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder a few months ago. They just changed his medication to treat that, so we are in a limbo period right now. I am hoping & praying that this medication will help. It breaks my heart to see him struggling so much at such a young age.

Taylor is a very active young man & he loves being outside as much as possible. I don't know what he is going to do when it is to cold to go outside this winter. I am so thankful each day that I have my son. He is the greatest gift God could have given me.

Prayer Requests for Taylor
Please pray that his medication will sort itself out soon. Seeing him struggle breaks my heart.

Please pray that he will feel God's peace & comfort each day of his life. There is a lot going on with him that I don't feel comfortable sharing, but God knows.

Thank you again for your prayers, support & compassion. We are so blessed to have wonderful people in our lives who truly care about us!
