Prayers Please

We are very sick!

Warren came home from work early yesterday
with a fever and horrific cough.  Now, this cough has
been around for a while but it is beyond bad, right now.

I heated some water and poured it into a 
small amount of eucalyptus oil for
Warren to breathe.  
In about twenty minutes he was able to 
get some sleep.
He has used it all day to keep his
sinuses or bronchial tube from 
spasm.

Mikey came home from work early today and went
straight to bed.  Chelsea has been in bed since this morning
sometime. Sadly for our anorexic girl she cannot eat a thing.
Finally she is able to drink some water.
She has a doctor's appointment tomorrow evening
which will be interesting...
just keep reading.

I just returned from the doctor where they 
have decided to test us for Whooping Cough.
Frankly, I don't think that is the issue but they have 
to be sure.  Since we are such a mess.

This afternoon four out of five of us are down for the count
and the fifth sounds like he should be.  Too stubborn I guess, 
or on a different track with this.

Now, it gets more interesting.
The man that was supposed to take the 
mission team to the airport tomorrow is sick.
Some variation of US will be driving them there 
in the evening or late night hours.
It is about a 2 and a half hour drive...one way.

Monday, as you know, Mikey is supposed 
to begin his Program at Longwood.  He NEEDS
to be well.  Frankly, I guess we are asking for a 
miracle.  That God would allow us to get back 
on our feet quickly and that we would give HIM
the glory for it.

Praying for you all dear! And for what it's worth, there has been an outbreak of whooping cough up here over this past month. I'm sure you all don't have it, but even so, I'm glad to hear that all the possibilities are being looked into, yanno?
Be well♥
