Garage sale all day Saturday morning and then Joel and I threw up fairly consistently from midnight to 6 am on Sunday morning. We are thinking about sending a thank you note to Whataburger, as that’s the only thing we can trace it back to. PTL, neither of the kids got sick and no one we know is sick…..so it had to be something we ate, right? UPDATE: ELLA IS NOW SICK. We think it was indeed a bug. Pray that Seth avoids it.
MUCHOS GRACIAS to Nana for coming to help with the babies, cleaning, laundry, etc. It would have been so hard to make it through all of that without help. The thought of buttering a waffle for Ella still makes my stomach turn flips and I just praise God that I didn’t have to do it. Really and truly, I felt that bad.
Here are some ways we can praise the Lord through the weekend, though it ended poorly:
-Baby weight is offically gone, thanks to E. coli!
-The kids didn’t get sick.
-Nana took care of the kids so we could sleep.
-We made $168 at our garage sale on Saturday.
-All closets, drawers, the pantry and attic are cleaned out and ready to be moved.
The MOST important part of this post is to ask for your prayers for Seth on Tuesday morning at 8:15. He’ll have a day surgery to have tubes placed in his ears. As Nana says, “Seffy is getting new ears on Tuesday!” Pray all goes well and that surgery is routine. Pray they can find a vein for the IV with no problems (last surgery, he had been poked all over), and pray that he wakes up without pain and nausea. Pray for the doctor who performs the surgery- he’ll also being scoping his lungs to check his air passages before we get into cold/flu season. The reason is that DS kids often have smaller, more constricted air passages, and the scope will give the doc a better idea of his passages when they’re healthy, should he need to prescribe breathing treatments or something else for the fall. Pray against anxiety for mom and dad. Thank you, thank you for your prayers and concern for us. It is so humbling and so encouraging to me and Joel that you care so much. We’ll let you know about “new ears” tomorrow!
Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord! Em
