Our little girl is in the hospital...
I tell you what...it seems like it is one thing right after another in our household. I have been sick with this H Pylori thing taking tons of antibiotics. N and M have had a stomach virus. Hubby is taking care of everyone and working a stressful job. He is amazing at all that he is doing.

I took S to the ER early this morning for severe stomach pain. She has a massive kidney infection. They are keeping her here fin the hospital for several days. I am lucky that I found a wireless connection.

I just wanted to ask for everyone's prayers and/or good vibes being sent our way. I feel like we are being majorly tested. But, like my sister called to tell me today....God doesn't give us anymore than we can handle. He sure must think I am strong!!!

All my best to everyone... I will be back in touch in blogger land!!!

Caroline,
I thought of you today...we are set to travel on June 6 and I was thinking how everything just seemed to be falling apart today for me spilled orange juice, crashed laptop computer, camera pooped out and had to be sent in for repair, my youngest son is getting molars and is CRANKY, and I thought...HOLY MOLY I am going out to intentionally add more work to my life????
Ofcourse it was a momentary thing and I am over it now but GEE life sure has a way of letting us know we are here sometimes.
I do pray that your lives will finally get back to normal and that mundane will be yours to cherish for a while:-) So very sorry to hear of your daughters illness. Hope you are all well soon. Wishing you the very best.

Hi, I just stumbled across your blog and want to let you know that I said a prayer for your daughter to heal quickly. I can't imagine how traumatic that must be to have a child in the hospital.

BTW - I love your blog title about "the journey inward."

Oh your poor daughter!! I hope she feels better soon. (And that hopefully they are giving her some meds in the hospital to take the pain away somewhat.) Yikes! A kidney infection.... possibly from Russia too? I will say some prayers for you, S, and the rest of the family. I hope that you are feeling better too. Keep us posted when you can. And I hope that you have some help from family and friends so that you and your husband can get rest, and also be able to be with S in the hospital.

Oh goodness. I hope she feels better soon.

I was in the hospital for a long time as a little kid with a severe kidney infection. They wouldn't even let me get out of the bed. Know what I remember most? Making fashion plate etches and my dad hanging them all around the room, getting a card that said S.W.A.K. from the cutest boy in my class, and staying up late to watch TAXI. For the most part, it wasn't a scary experience. I hope your daughter is handling the experience well. I wish I still had my fashion plates to send to her!

I hope S gets well soon. What a time for you guys! I agree with your sister though, God never gives us more than we can handle. He gives us His strength.

Hang in there!!
