Relieved and Thankful…

Dr. Cook called Tim while I was on the road to mom’s and said that Olivia’s ultrasound was clear!  Her blood work was normal except for low iron, and her protein level in another test had dropped significantly!!! The low iron level explains why she has had such a lack of energy lately.

Dr. Cook has talked to a specialist in Columbus and they believe Olivia has “Orthostatic proteinuria” (Martha and Tiffany, you were right!)  This is a benign condition that you can look up on the Internet if you are curious to know more.  🙂

Thank you for your prayers.  Olivia will start multi-vitamins and extra iron now, so hopefully her bouncy self will be back soon! 🙂

Praying you find many ways to cherish today,

  1. Cheri,

    I will be praying for your daughter. We have a friend who battles the same disease, and he has developed some recipes that are amazing! Please email me at and I will hook you up with him and his wife. They are precious, and I know he will be a huge help to you!!! Your daughter has been blessed with a wonderful mom to help her adjust to such a different way of eating.

    I love you.
