Our Redeemer Sustains!

As not to take away from the last post of my handsome, hairless, boys....
I am asking that you join me in prayer for the following:
I have developed dry socket in one of the wisdom tooth extraction sights. To say the least, this is VERY painful. I am unable to take advil due to it's chance of increasing my risk of ulcer/bleeding. Therefore, I am trying to pack my mouth with gauze soaked in tree tea oil and keep myself from talking to much--hard to do with a house full of inquisitive little ones!
Also, I spoke with Ethan's uncle tonight. He has waited for the second day in a row for this 'uncle' of ill-repute. Needless to say, he has not shown up. The clan elders have advised the uncle to just let it go and proceed in finalizing the process of handing Ethan over to our care. This is good news indeed. Please keep praying for a hedge of protection around the uncle and of course around Ethan, too. I have been in contact with the care centers director and he is ready to sign the release letter as soon as the uncle delivers the clan letter.
"Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world."

Oh Lord, Heal Summer's mouth and give her grace for the pain and even when she's free of pain!

So sorry about your pain. I ache for you as I got dry socket too when I got my wisom teeth removed.
Hairless guys are too cute. I still have locks of Ezra's hair from when we shaved at Amani when he had the nasty cradle cap!!I will treasure it forever!! Prayers are with you all.

Clove oil is what they used on both Justin and I. We will continue to pray. I am very excited about the news on Ethan!
