Stephanie and gestational diabetes

As you know, I (Steve) have celiac disease which means I can't digest Gluten. In Africa we learned that my three girls have a gluten intolerance as well. Yesterday we had Jay, Stephanie's father over for lunch and he has a heart condition so that he can't eat any fatty foods so that limits his eating. And then yesterday we found out that Stephanie has been diagnosed with gestational diabetes so during the rest of her pregnancy, she has to limit sugar and carbohydrates. So, it was a a bit comical us all sitting around the table, and it made for a complicated meal trying to make all these things work. Please be praying for Stephanie as we have to now try and make sense of how to adjust for her diet and ours and protect her health as well...
