Last month was a good month, but this month has not been quite as good for Alisha. She still struggles with her breathing issues some, but the hardest thing for her is that she feels tired all the time. There has been some improvement overall since she started her meds in October, but not as much as we had hoped. The doctor in Singapore had said it could take 3 months to get back to normal, but we’re at 3 months and she is still a long ways from normal.
The question now is whether she should continue on these meds and be patient or go back to Singapore and try to figure out if it’s something else. We will need to go somewhere (probably the capital) to have Elroy and Scout’s passports renewed pretty soon. We have thought about trying to see a doctor while we are there.
We have tried to think of some reasons why this month has been harder for Alisha. We have thought it may be a different brand of medicine that she started. Or it could be that we have been working on painting a couple rooms. It’s hard to know. On good days, she might be able to go out to the mall or a friend’s house. On bad days, she tones it down and it feels like we’re just surviving. If we knew that she was really on the mend, we could be patient. But it’s not knowing that is difficult. I probably sound a little despondent- maybe that’s just cause it’s a bad day. But we still need your prayers.
The kids are continuing their homeschooling and pecking away at the language very slowly. Our house helper left a couple weeks ago, so that has meant more work for all of us, mainly Alisha. We have been doing language sessions off and on, which makes it very hard to have any kind of progress. Thanks for your prayers.
