Happy New Year, everybody! We got home from Ohio last week and it's been a little crazy around here since then. It started in Ohio. First Keith got sick. Then Maddie. Then me. So far, I'm the only one who's actually gotten better! Keith and Maddie both have head colds and Maddie's went into her chest, so she has the horrible cough too. We took her to the doctor a couple days ago and discovered she also has an ear infection! Seems she's been to the doctor a lot lately. In mid-December, before we left, she was running a 103.5 fever for three days (without any other symptoms). She's had these "fevers of unknown origin" on probably 4-5 different occasions over the past 2 years and the doctors never know what it is. This last time they were thinking either a urinary tract infection or a kidney infection,which is much more serious. Her doctor is actually still concerned about kidney damage, so Maddie is having a kidney ultrasound on Thursday morning at Emmanuel (looks like no Bible Study or Mom-to-Mom for me this week, dang it!). So, if you could please pray for the health of our family, I'd really appreciate it!Here's our silly girl in a moment of feeling better. I just love how festive she looks...like a little Gap girl! That red velvet coat is actually from Aunt Dana for LAST year's Christmas gift and it *still* fits!
P.S.--Sorry if this post shows up with little rectangles in it or the same pics twice! I tried posting it originally through my Picasa photo software, but the pics wouldn't load, so I had to go back and put them in again! Technology...ugh.
