Anyway, he is home this morning, not feeling well. I freaked out last night b/c I had to play pharmacist, and I have said many times before, if I had been smart enough to be a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, teacher, nutritionist, therapist, researcher, EMT, chef, the list goes on and on, I would have been one of those things - even just one - many years ago. So, for me to be required to “play” all those roles now as a mom, is just overwhelming sometimes. So, Eli was not feeling well at all last night, crying and very uncomfortable, agitated, but no fever, just a lot of coughing and snot. Caleb had run just a slight fever on Friday, barely made it to 100, if it even did, and it only lasted the afternoon. I have little confidence in our thermometer (Caleb seemed to feel fine, and was cool to the touch, so I don’t know for sure that he had one, but because of Eli we have to assume he did and react accordingly), so I’m going back to the old fashioned oral

The house looks so great! I just want to sit still in the quiet, simple, cleanliness of it. We have had a couple of shows, and we thought one was going to snag it, but they cooled their interest. So, that was a shame… sort of. It is not a perfect house by any measure, but where is? And we love our neighborhood - the people in it, and its location. I am going to try to be patient for a few months, but then I may have to throw my hands up and say “oh, well, I guess we’ve got to move back in and try plan D.” I don’t know what plan D is, but maybe it will shape up by the time we need it. We’ve been driving around looking at potential places for ourselves, so that in case it does sell we might have an idea of what we are going to do. Please, keep this effort in your prayers because it plays a big part in our future and our flexibility to do what we need to do for Eli and all the kids.
Please, add a boy named Ben to your prayer list. His family just received word that he has relapsed, and please add four-year-old Bryce who has recently been diagnosed with medullo. Five-year-old
