Thank Goodness for Wal*Mart and Facebook

Last Friday I had a late night run to Wal*Mart to pick up a few things for Austin Kieff's first t-ball game...chairs, sunscreen, goody bags, candy...well I had a wonderful surprise in that I also ran into an old friend from high school. Julie is one of the sweetest and kindest girls I know. It was so nice to reconnect with her and I do apologize for blocking the aisle for all of those who went around us!

Julie's little boy Preston needs our prayers. The following is from Julie's post on facebook:

Subject: Preston
Asking everyone to please pray for Preston today. He went back to Birmingham. He saw his gastroenterologist. He told us Preston had dropped down to the thirteenth percentile on the growth chart and wanted him to take in more calories. The nuerologist wants him to stay slim so his muscles won't tire easily. Hopefully they will consult each other soon. Preston is to continue with the same medicines, he is changing formulas and adding the abc diet to try to stop the constant diarrhea. We are trying to find the balance of enough medicine to help him be hungry but not move food through system too fast. We are so thankful for how far God has brought him. We are so happy that he is growing. He is growing at HIS pace. He saw his pulmonologist. He has a respiratory infection again. Please pray this runs it's course quickly. Preston is not feeling very well today. Thank you to everyone for every prayer that has been said on Preston's behalf.
