He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children it will be a refuge.

Pneumonia




Poor, sweet little "Nomi" was SOO sick a few weeks ago with pneumonia and gave us all (especially me) a scare mostly before we knew what it was. It was 6 days before we got a diagnosis and all I knew was that she had a scary high fever, was very out of it and could not stay awake for anything (despite her best efforts- see picture :)). We are so thankful for all the prayers for her and us during a very emotionally and physically exhausting week. I realized thought that really I should be very thankful because in my nine plus years as a parent, this was the sickest I've seen one of my kids and in the grand scheme of things, that's a lot to be thankful for.



I thought we had a breakthrough mid-week when she recieved her birthday package from Annie and Da and actually came to life for about thirty minutes or so but was quickly downhill again. Her new polly pockets were instrumental the next day though in getting us through our second ER visit of the week and chest x-ray and more examinations by residents AND doctors (I was probably not as understanding as I should have been about the whole teaching hospital thing considering I"m a nurse, but it's different when they're poking around on your baby!)



And here's Naomi on the road to recovery...


Several pounds lighter but feeling MUCH better...
