Survival Mode

So, we had our first round of the stomach bug already and Nate is only 3 weeks old! We didn't think we would run into this until winter time. However, there is a bug going around.... go figure. Josh and I decided to go out to eat after dropping Christy off at the airport and Will and Abby stayed with my in-laws. On our way home we got a call that Abby had a fever and threw up...... oh no! So, after praying most of the way home.... we got Abby ready for bed and didn't know what things were going to look like for the rest of the family. Abby was a mess that night and threw up a lot.... which meant Josh and I up a lot and me changing my clothes often so that Nate wouldn't get it. Will ended up getting a fever also, but no stomach issues. Nate got a fever and it only lasted about 6 hours... family was praying!!!! I should have posted sooner so more would pray, but I was running on only a couple hours of sleep and I couldn't think straight. I know that people are still praying though and I know that helped us and Nate through. Nate's doctor was so helpful in that she gave me her cell phone in order to call her on our way to the hospital if Nate started getting sick - she said she would talk with the ER before we got there... Wow, that made us feel so much more relieved! We are all starting to feel better now and know that we will be sustained through all of this by a God who cares so much more about Nate than any of us can! We were definitly in survival mode the past couple of days... just taking things one step at a time and knowing that it's not in our hands....
