My Little One is Sick
« on: February 09, 2007, 12:31:14 AM »
Been throwing up--now dry heaving--since dinner.

Prayers for Hope (Elizabeth) would be appreciated. Y'all know of any services for that? I think the Akathist to the Theotokos is normally used, right?

Lord have mercy!

Please think about calling her doctor, especially if she also has a fever.  I know it is the middle of the night where you are, but I think the pediatrician will understand.

Lord, have mercy on the work of Your Hands.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Thanks, y'all.

We went to the dr. today after school (my mother graciously took off work and stayed with Hope), and it's pretty much just been diagnosed as a stomach bug.  So, lots of fluids (which she's keeping down now, thank God) for about a day, then start in on starchy stuff.

Thanks again for y'all's prayers.
