Trying Times

This past week has been a hard week.

My dad's mother, Lottie Boyne, passed away last week and we buried her in Sapulpa, OK, yesterday.

Emily got really sick and had a 105.8 fever. She ran over 103 for three days. Turns out she has strep throat. She is feeling really lousy and had to miss Memaw's funeral. Sally couldn't get her in anywhere and had to take her to the emergency room for treatment.

Sally's computer had a "thermal episode" and shut down. It looks like it has shut down permanently. She makes her living as a medical transcriptionist using her computer and the internet. We broke down and bought her a brand new Dell, that should be here tomorrow.

This morning, Audrey woke up sick. She said she had a belly ache. Sally was able to get her in to see the doctor this morning. He administered a strep test, but she doesn't have it yet. He said her glands were swollen and she had a fever (low). He said that if she gets worse, all we have to do is call his office and he'll send a prescription in and we can go pick it up.

Isn't this the way it is? When it rains, it pours.

We'll remember you in our prayers. Satan will never learn, he tries to 'pile on' when we are down, but all it does is give God more Glory when we lean on Him and make it through!

I'm sorry you are having a difficult week. I do understand as our family has been battling strep - first time ever for my girls - and even I've had to take antibiotics. All I know is that after the "storms" of life there is a great sense of cleansing and that rainbows often appear!

In our situation we felt that we were still in the storm but when we took Madison to the doctor, her cast came off EARLY and didn't have to be splinted (just a brace!) AND at her orthodontist appointment they had her all worked up about a cavity and after they gassed her up, the dentist said it was just a deep crevice so he just put a sealant in. BOTH situations were extremely "ugh" moments but both of them turned out far better - the sunshine after the rain!

Hope everyone feels better soon, that it doesn't continue to spread through the family, and that Sally will just be pleased as punch with that new Dell.
