more health issues


Praise was diagosed with pancreatic insufficency, which means that her body does not make the enzymes to digest proteins and fats. She is going to be on a special medication that she takes before meals to help her. Hopefully this will stop the diarrhea and help her to gain some more weight.Please pray that this works for her and that she is able to put on some more weight. Thanks!

HI Michelle,

It has been a while since I haev checked your blog and I am thrilled to see pictures of Praise walking! ALthough it is hard to see her get another diagnosis, I am sure you are glad to knwo why she hasn't been gaining weight. I am sure God is watching out for her and will help her to process her food and make gains in her health. Just so you know, I am back with Children's Hope in the NY office so you can call if you need anything! -Emily
