Update on the mouth sores

Thanks to everyone for your prayers and advice about Abigail's mouth sores. She still has visible sores in her mouth, but her pain appears to have subsided a lot. She still can't eat everything that she'd like to, but she can eat mild foods without much discomfort (i.e. chicken nuggets are ok, but BBQ sauce on them hurts).

We still don't know for sure what it is from, but the signs and symptoms all point to an initial outbreak of HSV1 (the virus that causes cold sores). (For more info, you can read this link. I learned things that I never knew about cold sores.) The next most likely culprit is some kind of food allergy, but she has never shown any allergic sensitivities before, and we can't think of anything she's eaten lately that could be the cause.

So, we continue to pray for her to be totally back to normal, but for now she's doing much better.
