Romans 5:3-5

"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems or trials, for we know they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disapointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love." Romans 5:3-5

To Bethesda and back in 3.5 days.

NIH December 4th to 7th   2011

Zach in the cockpit of the Airplane that flew us from Minneapolis to Dulles.
lucky bum....

Well it was a quick trip!  They did labs, scans and saw Dr. Winer.  We are tweaking his doses of PTH and they are trying to get his magnesium to come up and address the pain he is having in his joints.  Zach had lots of fun and as usual he makes friends wherever he goes.
Dr. Winer and Zach

This is Zach with his back to the Children's Inn. He was very excited to stay there,
 "it's kinda like a hotel but way cooler!"  Zach

Like decorating cookies...
Or playing with Viola the therapy dog.  Tho other little boy in the picture is from Newfoundland.  They've been coming to NIH for 4 years.

Or making Christmas ornaments.....

The Hospital and The Children's Inn were beautifully decorated for Christmas.  We are so thankful to be able to take Zach their where he can see Doctor's who have seen kids like him.  We have a story to share with you....I will post it shortly.  xoxo
