By His Grace

Just wanted to ask for your continued prayers for my little ones. They are all four hopefully on the mend but we have had QUITE a weekend! Thank you to Granny Smith Green and A Journey To Our Daughter for their precious prayer requests posts~ you two are incredible. Thank you for being such wonderful friends to me! A huge thank you and big hug to all of you for your heartfelt prayers, sweet comments and well wishes. I am beyond grateful.  My son Bennett was hospitalized this past Saturday with pneumonia. It came on suddenly and without any warning! Once he was doing better and was discharged from the hospital- we were home maybe several hours and I noticed that Ashton felt like he had a fever. Sure enough he did. 100.5. After speaking to the Dr. we rushed right back to the hospital where they proceeded to do everything under the sun- including a spinal tap on my precious newborn baby. He had to be admitted- for a min. of 48 hours. Sweet Jesus. I felt so helpless. I cried and I prayed. Please Lord. Please. That was all I could say through hours and hours of tears.We called my Mom and she was able to fly in to help as I do not have a baby sitter or any child care. In the midst of all of this- I noticed that Bella Grace seemed to be getting the same symptoms and Emma Pearl had a runny nose. Yes. That is correct! After a visit to the pediatricians office we were told that Bella had the start of pneumonia and an ear infection. They went ahead and started baby Pearl on the same medicine just to be on the safe side. Ashton was discharged yesterday- thank you Lord.  I am now at home with my four pumpkins and four bottles of Amoxicillin- make that five-Mommy is also sick.
Thank you for your continued prayers for our family! I will keep you updated.

Oh.. I know how hard a spinal tap is on babies. Two of my little ones had to get them. One was dx'd with viral meningitis at 12 weeks! My prayers and thoughts are with you and your little ones!

Hang in there! If I lived closer I'd come clean your house/do laundry or bring you a meal. So from California, here's sending some prayers.

I found your site through Granny Smith Green. You have such a beautiful family. I am so sorry to hear that your precious little ones are sick. I pray that they recover soon and are back to their wonderful selves very quickly. And I pray that you're able to rest and recover as well.

Good heavens! Poor thing! Praying for you and your babies!

Becky said...

Oh my dear, I will say a prayer for your littles. My little sister had pneumonia 7 times as a child and I remember myself and my older sister being quarantined away from her -- it was so difficult on my poor mother (even as a child, I could see that!). All you can do is nurse all the babies back to health and keep yourself going any way you can -- lots of coffee, lots of prayer, and don't worry about the chores! Keep us updated on how things are going. You are in my thoughts, my friend.

MIMILEE said...

God Bless You!! Oh , how I remember those times when my little ones were sick. It can be so frightening! Thank the Lord you are a believer and TRUST the One who CARES the most and Loves your children the most! He often had to remind me of that when my fears welled up within me and believe me , they often did!
Praying for you and your lovely children!

I'm so sorry to hear that you all of having such a time. There's nothing worse than the helpless feeling we as parents have when our children are sick. You're in my prayers.
