Spoke too soon..

OK, so I spoke to soon. Yesterday was our clinic day and I got both kids ready and out the door to my sis and law's house to drop Adrianne and meet my father in law. Greg has been out of town for the last couple of days so yesterday was a challenge to get it all done. Anyway, for the last couple of days James has developed a cough and runny nose(shocker). So we are headed to the clinic at 7:45 and around 8:10 we get onto I45 and at the Rayford/Sawdust exit James throws up everywhere. Of Course, I hadn't packed a change of clothes or brought a towel. My father in law stops at the HEB, and we get wipes, trash bags, and paper towels. I call the clinic and tell them we are going to be late and then we head to the the Super Target at Cypresswood. I go in there and buy James 2 sets of clothes and a pair of shoes and I buy myself another jacket(b/c he threw up on me too). We finally get to the clinic and his counts look great and he seems to be feeling fine. We had to go for an anesthesia consult because he is getting an LP next month. We get to the place at 1:00 and we walk out to go get our car at 4:00. We get back to the house around 6:00. I tried to give him his 2nd dose of steroids and he spits it everywhere so needless to say I am at my wits end!

I put the kids to bed at 8 and James wakes up all night long. I go check on him at 12:30am and he is running fever. This morning his fever climbed to 102 and I called the clinic and they wanted to see him again. So James, Adrianne, I packed the car, we dropped Adrianne at my sis in law's, and we headed back to MDA. They took some more blood and gave him Tylenol and sent us home. They are going to call and let us know his counts and if there is an infection at his port site. I will keep you posted on how he is doing. Please continue to pray for us!

Hey there Joy! I am so sorry to hear that James is sick. Please know that I am praying for him to get better and I am praying for God to give you patience with your kiddos. God is so awesome... He sees the big picture even when we are going through the little battles.

Much Love and Prayers,

I'm praying for James...that his fever stays away tonight so that he can sleep and in return, you can...I know you know, that every day, hour, and minute He's walking with you....
