Prayer request

or now. 10:30: Hello all my dear friends. I am writing this morning to ask you all to pray for Cooper. It really isn't a grave issue, it's just that he is really having a hard time with his asthma. He seems to be in a cycle of getting a SLIGHT runny nose each month which turns into a full blown asthma attack. He doesn't seem to be responding well to treatments and needs to be nebulized(sp) every couple of hours. SO...we are off to the doctors this morning to hopefully get some more answers! PLEASE pray that they can help us out. I really don't want him to be on steroids once a month anymore...it cannot be good for his little body. I will keep you all posted! Thanks~~Me

12:30: Went to the doc and he prescribed steroids for a week (surprise, surprise) and put him on a daily dose of Pulmacort. Lets hope this works for now...

We will be praying for you guys! I will ask Karl's aunt also for any suggestions that she might have. Her son had really bad asthma for years but it seems to be under control now. It's so hard to see them suffer because you feel so helpless. I'm sure that you are doing a great job so keep your chin up!!

I was thinking of my aunt's son Thoemaas too, as Courtney mentioned. The poor boy had to use a nebulizer alot as a young little boy, but I think he is pretty much passed all that now.. Keep doing what you are doing. God will protect him, I know you know that! =)
