Diagnosis for Ray and a Challenge!

I FINALLY got a call today from Ray's urologist's office about her bladder test.  She does have bilateral reflux, which means that some of her urine is flowing out of her bladder back up towards her kidneys.  There can be several reasons that cause this and many different degrees of severity.  All I know right now is that Ray's isn't severe.  I would guess that means she won't have to have surgery.  I have an appointment with the urologist next Thursday to talk about her treatment.  I'm glad that we are getting this all sorted out before Josh and I travel.  Ray got sick again on Sunday afternoon and when Josh took her to the doctor she had yet another UTI, so I am really glad to be getting to the bottom of this mess.  Thank you for all the prayers sent up on Ray's behalf! 

Now for the challenge!  We cannot figure out a middle name for Parker!  To tell you the truth we haven't put a whole ton of effort in to it, but I'd still like some help.  Nothing seems to fit.  His real name is a no go, and I just can't seem to find something that fits with Parker.  Josh wants it to be meaningful, but the few names I've thrown out that have a meaning behind them that fits his situation, Josh has shot down.  I thought that maybe some of you might have some neat idea for a rockin' middle name for him!

We already have middle names for Daniel and Josslyn.  Daniel's middle name is going to be Dawson, after his daddy(Josh's middle name is Dawson).  And Josslyn's middle name has her real name in it, so I can't share it with you until our adoption is final.  It's cute though. Parker, poor Parker, is just middle name-less!  So if any of you have any good names that pop in to your head send 'em my way!

Praise God that you have some info on Ray!
Hmm, I'm going to have some fun searching for name ideas.

My boy's middle name is Zachariah--which means "Remembered by the Lord" He is 10 and lives in a home for older boys who refer to themselves as "The Forgotten Boys" as most have very little chance of being adopted as most people adopt babies and girls. I was between two middle names--the other choice was Jeremiah (reminds me of the verse "I know the plans I have for you...") but chose Zachariah as it was so significant to his story. So those are my two suggestions.

So thankful for answers for little miss Ray!! Praying as you move into the treatment phase that it'll be effective and you'll see some results before you have to leave her. As to the name, God will provide it when you need it. We had the same quandary with Nicole... she got her name as we were driving to the hospital for my induction! :)

I was thinking of Jeremiah and then saw the person above put that! I thought it was neat since Jeremiah 18-4 is on your blog address. Good luck choosing a name! Parker Jeremiah has a nice ring....

Parker Jeremiah maybe? Or Parker Malachi? Malachi means "God's messenger", isn't it beautiful? Parker Alexei?

What about keeping some or a translation of his birth name? I don't know what that is, so maybe it doesn't work with Parker. LOL

Can't wait to hear what you come up with!!

So, I'm just now reading these old blog posts, and I don't know if you have picked a middle name for Parker, but I think Jeff would like to throw his 2 cents in the hat: 'Crimefighter.' Since Carson got 'Danger' for a middle name, instead of Crimefighter, it's free for the pickin'. I know, what would you do without me, right? ;)
