Timothy Update

I should apologize for such a belated update on Timothy. Thank-you for the prayers. . .
He fought high, high fevers for days, together with febrile seizures. For awhile it looked quite likely that he had meningitis, but the tests ended up negative.
After about a week in the hospital, he was finally discharged (read: my mother insisted that he be discharged due to the unearthly price of the antibiotics being given him that didn't seem to be doing any good and the doctor intended to keep him on for another week. . .)
Now he is much better. No fever at all. The only issue that persists is his allergies.
Poor little guy! He reacts as badly to the super expensive prescription hypoallergenic formulas as he does to anything else. So far we've tried regular formula, soy formula, and goat formula, as well as various concoctions of rice milk, jobs tears, coconut milk, afore-mentioned super expensive hypoallergenic formulas, ect, ect. My mother has tried so hard. And nothing - all miserable reactions.
Right now we're testing out (as a last resort) almond milk; made by cooking, blending, and straining the almonds.
Would you please pray that God would bless this in his small body?
