Tangible Love / MMKM

Dear Ones:

This past weekend was a 4 day school break for the boys. It did not go as you would hope for a break to go. Canaan had pneumonia and Zion had the flu. Elijah still is fighting bronchitis. Buster even vomited on the carpet, of course only 3 inches from the wood floor.  Eric took Canaan to the ER on Sunday morning because his fever was so high. Sunday afternoon it had reached 104.3, I think we could have roasted marshmallows off of his body. As it turned out his x-rays showed his lungs had cleared with a little wheezing left and he had just caught the flu from Zion. The poor little guy spent the entire day and through the night in bed. He seems to be a little better this morning. He had the breakfast of champions...bologna. I know the stuff is so unhealthy but he requested it and since he had not eaten in a while we were going to give him whatever his heart desired. This morning Canaan and Zion still have fevers and Elijah is still barking so I am off to the doctor again in a few minutes. I think I could have come close to buying my dream SLR camera with all the doctor and drug co-pays we have forked out. OK 
maybe that is an exaggeration but it is not cheap let me tell you. Can anyone say Ramen Noodles for dinner :)

Well that is the latest on our health drama. Below I wanted to share some tangible acts of love given to us through it all:

Canaans dear friends from across the cul- de- sac delivered their "we love you" art work 
Lots of phone calls and e mails checking on us and encouraging us.
Our dear friends Fritz and Andrea even dropped off pizza for dinner. After a day of bleach and lysol it was so nice to not have to worry about dinner. 

We are so thankful for the prayers and love. May it all multiply back on to the givers.

  1. I hope the boys are feeling better soon. It is not fun when the kids are sick. I just heard from the moms at our library time that the flu is going around our area again. No thanks, we're all set!

    blessings,
