Puffy Eyes, Asthma and more…

Posted: 02/04/2009 in Prayer Requests

Well, It’s been a week or so since I last updated you on our current situation. As you all know, Miha and Katie have been dealing with some health issues and we’ve been trying to find the answers. A week and a half ago, we moved out of our house to see if something in the house was causing the allergic reactions. We stayed a day and a night with my parents, but the moment we lay down to sleep Miha had another asthma attack. The next day we moved over to Anca and Poli’s apartment and stayed there for a week. Though Miha didn’t have another attack, there were no major changes to Miha and Katie’s health… Same old purple puffy eyes, itching sneezing, etc.

We went to a local allergy doctor and had some tests done. The doctor was convinced that they were allergic to something in our house. Miha had some allergy tests done and we anxiously awaited the results which were to come back after a few days. A few days passed by and the results came back, and surprisingly Miha is NOT allergic to any of those things (mold, dust, cat hair, cockroaches, pollen, etc.) that they tested her for…

Sooo… Apparently the problem is something in the air here… The pollution level has been noticeably high lately. A number of times even I have noticed my throat and eyes burning while walking through town. The doctor recommended leaving town for a while to see how they react.

Pray for us as we are still pretty discouraged. We were hoping that Miha and Katie were just allergic to something in our house and that the sollution would simply be to move out to another place. Unfortuanately it seems much more complicated and we are still trying to figure out what to do… We probably will leave for a week or so to another location, though we had just come back from America where we were problem free.

Pray for me (Joey) that I’d have wisdom and courage to do the best thing for my family and for God’s glory. I know that God is good and in control of this situation, but need to constantly remember that His sovereign ways are best for His children.

Blessings to you all,

Joey, Miha and Katie

    I know that these situations seem so hard when we are going through them but God really knows what He is doing and I pray that you hear His will loud and clear.

    Oh… I forgot to mention that the doctors here have no possibility of testing for allergies to the pollution here… Just told us that the way to probably test that is to leave town for a while to see if they are better.
