Feelin' Crummy

This is Elizabeth in a fun dress from Grandma Harms. It's been quite cold here, but the girls put them on and wouldn't take them off for 3 days!

It's been a few weeks since Elizabeth has needed her own update, but before things get crazy, I thought I'd email a quick update and prayer request. The cold that Elizabeth has had for the last two weeks has hung on long enough to give her an ear infection and allow some mucous to collect in her lungs. She started complaining of pain (rare for her) last night and sure enough had fevers all day, in addition to a gnarly sounding cough. Praise God I'd already arranged for my friend to be here for the day to help out and she was able to stay with the little ones while I took Elizabug to the pediatrician and to Children's for blood work. We were also thankful our Infectious Disease Dr. was able to weigh in and suggest she start another round of the heavy duty oral antibiotics that allowed us to leave the hospital early last time. So, for now, and hopefully for good, we're home, but Elizabeth is feeling, in her words "crummy".

Would you please pray for good rest for her, that the antibiotics would give her system the boost it needs to clear both the ear infection and protect her from pneumonia, AND that we get to stay home from the hospital?? All three of the girls have colds now, but so far, Matt and I have remained mostly symptom free. We hope we sent Grandma off in good health (a few days will tell) and Granna arrives late tonight. YAY! Thanks so much for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. Your emails continue to encourage us. Meals from friends continue to nourish us and the prayers you offer up are surely sustaining us.  I'm once again without wireless on my laptop (sheesh!) but will send out an update on the bed rest situation after we get a peek on Baby H & the clot next Tuesday.
