Whoo Hoo! antibiotics

Praise the Lord in all trials,

We are to consider it all joy when we encounter various trials and tribulations.

Well I should be one joyful lady. :) We have Scarlet fever. I caught in quickly and now all three are on antibiotics for different reasons.

Mason for Scartlet Fever
Abby for double lung infection
Judah for after surgery/ overdose.

like I said Whoo hOOO!
I have been trying hard to stay upbeat, Judah is recovering fine so that is one very good thing. He ate "real" food tonight. He slept through the night all last night so we are anticipating a full recovery in the next few days. He is fighting with his brother and sister so he must be feeling well.

We will be meeting with the doctors and staff on Monday to dicuss the situation with the morphine and what happened to Judah. The anthestisiologist called and wants to meet with me in person to discuss things. I was told he is punishing himself and feels very bad. I want to have grace in this situation but I must assure that things will change for other families in the future. Everyone is very proactive and they are starting new procedures all ready in effect. For instance longer monitoring for children after surgery and especially after any dose of Narcan. So things are changing and that is what I wanted. The ENT was very empathatic yesterday with me on the phone and we had a chance to communicate. He is very concerned about this and is asking all the questions I have so I know they are on top of things. I feel they are being very proactive. Anyway I will keep you up to date. I have been out of the loop recently as Judah was struggling with some big time pain, after the big dose of morphine wore off he had few days that were hard on him.


  1. Wow when it rains, it pours! Standing the gap with you!!

  2. Oh my!
    You are one strong lady. God Bless you!

  3. I hope they all get better and you find out exactly what happened with your baby and his surgery.


  4. I've been thinking about you Kim and wondering how things are going! Sorry all the kids are sick. Sounds like Judah's on the other side of the pain and I'm glad about that. I'll be praying that everyone is better soon and that you stay well. I'll talk to you when I get back!
    Love, Julia

  5. Praying for complete healing and restoration for each of your precious ones!
    And praising God for the firemen who saved Judah's life!!!
