Sick :(

We could really use prayers right now. First and foremost Amber is sick, she is trying to stay out of the hospital. She has had trace to moderate keytones in her urine. She is in communication with the nurse and they are monitoring her closely from home. Well from my Mom's house. She has a fever that she has to take Tylenol every 4 hours to keep down, it is still 99.7. She has given herself two bolus of Zofran to keep her food down as well. She feels horrific. She really hates taking meds so she is really sick to be taking them like this. The baby is moving around a lot and even kicked Cole's hand. He was delighted.

McKenna has a fever of 102.7 and is lethargic and has the chills

I have a fever of 100 and a very full head and sore throat

Jimmie still has a lot of snot, he has been kinda gaggy, and a few coughs here and there. I am listening to his lungs with my stethoscope (yes I do that) I don't hear any crackling but I do worry about his lungs.

Andrea (my Mom) she is trying to tend to everyone. Mom is not sick but lets pray that she stays that way. Thankfully Justin is home today and I think Rod and Kathy will come out tomorrow to help me.

I know this is not the end of the world but it feels like it. Can I just keep Jimmie in a bubble please!

Love, Rachael


  1. We're praying for ALL of you--including the healthy ones, so they don't get sick, too!! Don't feel weird about using a stethoscope to listen to his lungs--you totally know that you're not alone in that! =)

    Love you all,
    Adrian and Janelle

  2. Oh my-- so sorry. Certainly will lift you ALL up tonight and continue tomorrow. Thanks for sharing so we know to pray!

  3. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

  4. I will continue to pray for you all!! I hope that you were recognized on Mother's Day because you have been and are a terrific mother and Jimmy is very lucky to have you!! Hang in there is really does get better as they age!!
