Prayers...

.: Wild Daisies and Sweet Purple Clover Collected on One of Our Walks:.

Please pray for my dad, Father David. He is in the Emergency Room now and will likely be admitted for being septic. We aren't sure exactly what the problem is, but I will be sure to keep you posted.

UPDATE: My dad was finally diagnosed with cellulitus! Yikes. They will be keeping him for a day or two and my mother has calls out to clergy in the area to see if anyone can cover Vigil and Liturgy for him. Thank you for your prayers.

It has been a very hard day for our family. Besides worrying about my dad, we took Little Man to the ER at 5am for croup. He was given steroids and we were sent on our merry way. Button has been sick with cold-like symptoms (that are worsening) for five days, so I called our doctor for a sick visit and since he was booked up, he suggested waiting it out until Monday (this did not make Mama happy!) At about 4:30pm Sugar Plum began complaining that her ear hurt (she has been sick with a cold all week, too). I rushed her right over to the Urgent Care in our area and she was diagnosed with an ear infection. While we were there, I asked the nurse practitioner if she could look at Button, but she said that she couldn't since he was under 18 months old. When we got home, Father John and I decided that it would be a good idea to talk to the on-call physician about Button before it got too late in the evening. At 7:00 pm we were told to head to the ER "just to check things out". Father stayed home with the big ones, while I went off to the hospital. We are now home after 5 hours with a diagnosis of pneumonia! Yikes! Hopefully we will all get to rest tonight!

Thank you for your prayers!

Prayers for you all. Oh the shuffle of multiple sick ones.

One of ours battles croup and gets it a few times a year, it can be scary.
The first time he displayed signs he was actually hit with respiratory stridor and should've had the ambulance called to the home.

Oh, no! I never came back thinking that an update would be on a new post. I'm so sorry all of the children have been sick. How scary! I'm glad they're doing better now. Many prayers.

My grandmother has an overly generous physician who prescribes antibiotics at the drop of a hat. Anyway, she has had cellulitis 3 or 4 times. The answer on how she managed to survive it so many times is: good nourishing broth and kefir. The kefir they sell in the store is more than adequate, but I would stick to the plain so as not to aggravate the bacteria. This is a real Nourishing Traditions to the Rescue! situation and it really saved her life again and again, and again.

Lord have mercy on you and yours.
