Annoying bugs! August 3, 2008

Not much to update around here….

We are all recuperating from a mean and nasty stomach bug.  Yes, unfortunately I think Eli has been feeling it all week.  We just didn’t know his tummy was what was ailing him.  He has also had the bad cold  but now that I have been sick I realize this might have been part of the reason he has been so clingy and whiny.  It hit me halfway through the funeral.  When we arrived back at the house I literally could hardly stand so my parents helped me get the boys home and I passed out.

Thankfully my parents watched Eli and Becca took the big boys swimming.  More wonderful friends brought by dinner while I remained quarantined upstairs.  Mark fell prey to the evil bug during the night and then Saturday McCall came down with a fever.  Despite the dreadful bug my parents stuck it out with us and my sister Kelly, her wonderful husband and children came to celebrate McCall’s birthday and spend some time with all of us.  They didn’t even get to see Mark because by that time he was quarantined upstairs.  Some more great friends brought dinner for all of us, can you say amazing?

Today (Sunday) we spent the day just the five of us.  Only Haig was feeling well so we laid around all day long.  Sweet Gina brought us a great dinner tonight.  I went out to the Newspring Florence meeting (which was so exciting to be a part of) and then did some birthday shopping in the rain.

Once again we are amazed at our friends’ generosity and love.  Every need has been met without even asking.  Yesterday we ran out of toilet paper and before we could make a plan as to who would escape to the store, my friend Kara arrived on our doorstep with a basketful of goodies, including toilet paper!  God is good!  Mark is going to stay home with us one more day I think.  And prayerfully tomorrow we will all wake up feeling much better.  Thank you again everyone for all your prayers, they are felt and needed.
