When God slows you down.

It’s odd what God will use to make you take a break.  I feel like I’ve been running, running, running, and still not getting anywhere.  Last night, shortly after I went to sleep, Elise was at my door saying she didn’t feel good.  I thought she was just talking about her throat as she had started losing her voice yesterday, so I just sent her back to bed.  I realized I was wrong when she came and got me again saying she was too sick to sleep.  When I took her back to her bed she threw up and then I realized I was dealing with something more.  She threw up a couple times last night, but thankfully was able to get some sleep.  I had to also wake up with Will last night to feed him, so needless to say I am rather tired.  Elise is cuddled on the couch watching cartoons and trying unsuccessfully to keep water down.  I guess we won’t be doing much of anything today.  But, I have to admit I am glad for the excuse to sit down and relax.  I do have to do some sewing, which every day I’ve tried to do and hardly get any done.  So hopefully today I’ll accomplish more because I don’t have to worry about doing school with Elise or cleaning.  My house is actually fairly clean due to help from Mom Lein and Aunt Meg, who came and helped me clean up last week.  So as long as you don’t go into the bedrooms or upstairs, you’ll be fooled into thinking I am keeping up with everything.  🙂  Anyway, please keep us in your prayers today:

-Pray that Elise will start feeling better and that she’ll start being able to keep liquids down so she doesn’t get dehydrated.

-Pray that Will, John, and I are protected from getting this bug.  (I am already feeling a bit queasy, but not sure if that is because I’m coming down with something, or if I’ve just cleaned up too much vomit. 😦 )

-Pray for Will as well.  He woke up with what appears to be an infection on his boy parts (to put it politely).  I’ve a call into the nurse to find out if I need to come in for that.

-Pray things will work out if for some reason I need to take Will in to the doctor, as I can’t leave Elise here alone, but really don’t want to take her out of the house either.

-Pray I will be able to finish Elise’s dress today and start on mine.

Thanks, I appreciate your prayers.  And also thanks to Laura who is bringing some 7-Up for Elise since I can’t get to Wal-Mart to get it.
