partly cloudy...

Hi Friends (:

Well Dr. Pat put it perfectly this afternoon at Evie's sick visit... last Friday she was Sunny with clear skies and today she is Partly Cloudy. Hopefully we can keep away that chance of rain. She most likely has a virus, but we're putting her on precautionary antibiotics, and are going to start breathing treatments to see if it helps to unclog the gunk she has building up.

It just about broke my heart when Dr. Pat said "yeah, she just doesn't have that glimmer in her eyes that she had on Friday." Ugh. add to that a partly cloudy mama.

I truly believe that with loads of prayer and rest Evie will be all cleared up and ready to go for surgery. We have 18 days, and her cold should run it's course in 7-10 provided it doesn't settle in her lungs and grow in there. Will you pray that Evie gets better quickly, and Lyla doesn't go bonkers while I keep her away from any potentially sick human being (that being everyone) for the next two and a half weeks? Also that Eve can keep weight on during her cold... shes already lost 4 oz... shes 11-7.

Thanks friends. Love you.


  1. Continuing to think about you all! I'm headed to a Steubenville conference with the youth of our parish on the 16th and I will be thinking of Evie and all of you and we will all be praying for her on our bus ride up to Minnesota!

  2. Thanks for letting me share a "sickie present" with each of the girls today! We're praying for you each day-many times a day!!!
