This Illness Just Won't Go AWAY

We all continue to have our bad times. Today, it is Daddy and Rebekah who are throwing up, Daddy and Sarah who have a mild fever and all of us who are cranky and tired.

Rebekah threw up this morning in her bed. What a mess! Then, she was scheduled for Physical Therapy, so we packed up and headed into town for that. On our way in, she started throwing up again. I called and cancelled her therapy, and we turned around and went home. That is two weeks in a row that we have had to cancel Occupational Therapy or Physical Therapy. I would like to get it going, so that we can get into a new routine. These bugs just aren't letting it happen.

I called the Pediatric Surgeon's office about Rebekah's rash. We emailed some pictures of the infection and the doctor took a look and decided to put her on a different antibiotic (augmentin). We got that called in yesterday, picked up and started last night. Hopefully this will take care of it. We are now into day 14 of antibiotics of one form or another. With that, her stools are pretty soft and she has a sore bottom. It hasn't gotten too out of hand, and I'm doing my best not to let it.

Please pray that we ALL get to feeling better soon. This is just dragging on TOO long and we are all tired of it.

Sounds like you're sick and tired of BEING sick and tired, and it never seems to end. Hopefully, with the warmer weather, you can open up the windows to get some fresh air into your place and let some of the bugs out. Bless you all.

My daughter is five and our entire household has had some type of cold bug that just won't go away. It took us all over three weeks to lose it and she is finally able to breathe after her doctor gave us Augmentin this week.

The Augmentin does work and I really hope Rebekah is feeling better soon. She has been through so much, you all have, to be sick like this on top of it all I know is just annoying. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, as well as the thoughts and prayers of those I love; we are all pulling for your family.

If you have time to drop me a note at renmeleon@earthlink.net I would like to send Rebekah something if it is ok, something that I hope will make her smile...

Technology is amazing - that you can just e-mail pictures to the doctor.

In the name of Jesus and in Holy Spirit power, I command the spirits of affliction to be cleansed from your bodies,your home and your land and ask God to pour down healing grace as oil from the top of your heads, soaking you down to the tips of your toes. May the angels of God make war upon the enemy that they would flee far from you and the power of the blood of Jesus be placed as a mighty hedge of protection round about each of you. In Jesus blessed name I believe. Amen.

I am always thinking of you and wishing for you to be in perfect health, all of you. May you be able to get into your new routine very soon and hopefully the augmentin will work for Rebekah.
Check out my blog there is a book on there that I am promoting for my friend that you may be interested in.
Love & Hugs to all of you,
from both of us :)
