p-new-moan-ya

Yes, pneumonia has struck. Aaron has it, warranting his first ever antibiotic, and even as I pray that Evan will not succumb, I find myself jumping with furrowed brow at every tiny cough, and wondering why on EARTH I didn't have the doctor take a quick listen to Evan's little lungs yesterday. I am waiting on Michael to come home and listen to see if a trip to Urgent Care is necessary. I don't even want to think about antibiotics and my tiny baby.

And I? I am grumpy with that "sickness is coming" feeling and am begging God to let this be the last sickness in our family for a long, long time. I am discouraged even as I recite Scripture and sing Scripture songs. Please pray for my attitude to be sweet.

No one will be happier to welcome Spring than I. No one.

I've had pneumonia so many times and it just takes it out of you. I'm so sorry Aaron has it, poor little guy. I pray God will restore him to full health. I also pray spring will come soon for you.

Oh dear! I'll pray for you. Only God can graciously give a sweet spirit in the midst of these times. (I know - I've been there too! Not through pneumonia but in similar worrisome circumstances.)

Oh Jenny!! You guys have really had a rough winter! I'll be praying for all of you, and especially that Evan won't get it. And that Aaron will be able to sleep well tonight, and that he'll be all better soon. Praying that God will strengthen you and give you much needed grace, and rest, too!!

My dear sweet Jenny. I will be just as happy as you when spring arrives. Wait til you have 5 kids to rotate the sickness around.
I hope your little guy comes around quickly.

Achia (the word spoken here to communicate "I'm sorry" but in a deeper, more heartfelt way).

Jenny - I hope this encourages you - but my experience has been that the first 2-4 years have a lot of sickness as their immunity gets established. Keep on keeping on! My older ones are healthy most of the time... and even Jonathan is starting to pull out of those difficult years.

Praying for encouragement and health!
