a prayer request

I know, I know, I already posted one last night for Saoirse.  And to correct any confusion about that request, I guess the prayer would be for this "bite" to get better on its own, without having to call or go to the doctors.  The problem right now is that we don't know if it is a bug bite.  The good thing is that the pink area has not expanded any, maybe even the tiniest bit better today (maybe), but the raw area is larger, probably due to yesterday's itching fest (before she got the remedy).  So prayers that it heals quickly, whatever it is. 

But it seems we are in one of *those* modes of trial (small of course).  Last night Isabella came home from being out with Jeremiah at his soccer practice.  She was limping.  It's just an ingrown toe nail, but its all swollen and painful.  Ah, lovely.

Then this morning Jed threw up.  I was hoping it was due to the cough he had and that maybe he choked on some mucus.  However since it was almost 8 am, I was very suspicious when he lay right back down and fell back to sleep.  Hmmmm, not good, he normally is awake by this time.  He came out into the living room with out me hearing and I was surprised to see him when I walked in the room.  I asked him if he was ok.  He said, yes, and then immediately proceeded to throw up.  Yeah, you're ok alright!  It's 10:30  now and he is *still* sleeping!  I gave him a remedy for vomiting and he hasn't vomited since (two hours ago), I can only hope I got the right one and that the sleeping is a healing tool.  I've noticed with illnesses when the child gets the right remedy they fall asleep.  Weird.  But I suppose it's the body's way to shut down to heal.  So pray for him and a quick recovery.  Thus far in Jed's four years tummy bugs come and go quickly.  The problem of course is that he doesn't always keep them to himself :-)  This Saturday is Moira's birthday party with friends.  That's only 48 hours away, plenty of time for others to get sick, which means we would have to cancel the party.  I would hate to have to do that to her.  Moira seems to always end up with the short end of the stick.  I know she would be really upset.  So please pray we all stay well through the weekend.

Thank you all!  Off to hopefully finish the rest of my kitchen and get the girls busy with picking up the outside yard.

Sorry your tribe is having so many troubles! Be sure to soak that foot in Epsom salt! It's a miracle cure!
