1. My oldest daughter had some tests done today. The doctor suspects Crohn's disease, but we have to wait to find out.

2. Tomorrow our dog takes the one way trip to the vet. He's only seven years old, but has a fairly rare auto-immune disease that has him miserable. Thousands of dollars of medication and special diet would keep him alive, but not help his quality of life at all. The kids could use a bit of prayer as we go through this. Thankfully, they're all old enough to understand how this works and this isn't the first time they've dealt with it. I'm sure they'll get through it okay, but it may be a rough couple of days.

3. My son is still going through a difficult time transitioning to adulthood. He's been driving about six months now and has owned four cars - all used Audis and BMWs (nothing else is good enough for him). Two of them he's totaled (but if you ask him, it wasn't his fault) and the other two he damaged and then sold at a steep loss. He hasn't had car insurance for any of it, so his license is probably suspended now. His living situation is still unstable. He signed with the Navy with a scheduled ship date in a few months, but has yet to decide if he's actually going to go or not. He is dealing with a bad combination of pride and paranoia.

4. Through it all, my wife is dealing with fibromyalgia and lupus - both of which are aggravated by stress.

Praying. And I'll say a separate prayer for your daughter. Our daughter has had Crohn's for 8 years (she's now 31). I hope and pray that yours does not.

Sorry you and your family are going through all that, Moose. That does seem like quite a bit. Your son sounds like me at 17. I had wrecks w/my first few cars, too. But then after the 3rd I all of a sudden became a better driver.

Prayers up right now.
