Feeling Weary...

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
~Matthew 11:28-30

Feeling a bit weary and just wanting my little girl to be well! The doctor just left the room and delivered the news that we will definitely be here until tomorrow. Abby's appetite has not returned at all and the doctor is fairly certain it's due to the infection. X-rays today show the fluid to be the same. Good news is the pneumonia has not progressed.

The dreaded "chest tube" was mentioned again today. I thought we were out of the realm of that happening. My weary-worry-o-meter just shot up. Immediately, the Lord whispered the verse above in my ear.

Many of you have asked how Emily and Ben are doing. They have been troopers, but are definitely getting restless and bored. It's hard enough to have a sick child in the hospital, but it's a million times harder to be on the road, away from home, with a 6 and 9-year-old who need entertaining. Jason and I don't have the energy or desire to entertain them, but press on, we will...

The doctor complimented us for our positive attitudes and asked how we do it, saying they don't see that often. Kind of ironic that in that very moment, I felt the urge to throw something...not at her, mind you...just a random act of throwing things...maybe a little rebellion coming out, who knows!

Please continue to pray for us and thank you so much for praying!

Melissa - I am sorry for the disappointing news. It must seem like you're in this dry and weary land. Praying encouragement into your hearts and minds. Praying health and vitality into your daughter. Praying patience and self-entertainment into your children. You are so loved!
