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 her!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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.
