One of those weeks!

I wrote a post for yesterday entitled "One of those days" but it soon became apparent that it is going to be one of those weeks.

It seems to be that way for almost everyone I know. Everyone is struggling with health problems, financial problems, relationship problems. It seems like we are all being picked on.

I am trying to keep it all in perspective. We are facing a lot of house repairs right now as our hot water heaters went out. There was some water damage that will have to be repaired. We have already been hit with several other unexpected bills this year is only money!

Hubby is blessed with a good job and we have been able to save some money for situations just like this. It hurts to take money out of our savings but that is exactly what it is there for.

I remind myself that all these things are temporary. Poor health, financial hardships, problems......they are all temporary. There is a great Day coming and all of this will seem as nothing!

So today, I say a special blessing for all my friends and my own family as we struggle through these things. I am thankful for all the Lord has given us and give him all the Praise and Glory!

Poor baby girl has pneumonia! We took her to the doctor again last night and she ordered x-ray and lab work for today. Before I even got home from having the test done, they had called my husband and said she has pneumonia.

Good news is we can treat it at home, although she says she wants to go to the hospital. They took about a gallon of blood from her this morning. We will see if anything come up from that.

Please pray that the antibiotics will work quickly, she has been sick a long time and we are all ready for her to be well again!

We are on day 4 of the Flu with my daughter being the star player. Every night about 3 am she comes downstairs and throws up for an hour. We thought maybe she was getting over it today, as she had no fever in the morning but by afternoon she was back up there to 102, so I guess we are not done yet. Now she has developed a cough and a huge fever blister, so she is a very unhappy camper.

Pray for us!

UPDAIE- We are now on day 6 of the flu! 6 days of vomiting, fever and crankiness! We are taking her back to the doctor this evening, this has gone on too long!
