No More Fever :)

Sorry I didn't get a chance to post yesterday... Abbey's fever finally broke yesterday afternoon. Her blood cultures both came back negative as did the strep throat test and other nose test that tested for many different viruses. We aren't sure what caused the fever, but are thankful that it's gone. There is a cold going around our house right now and Abbey does seem to have it, but so far it isn't bad. Please pray that her body would be able to fight this and that it doesn't turn into a sinus infection or something else that would require antibiotics. Last time she had a cold it turned into a sinus infection and then after being on the antibiotics her immunity dropped extremely low. We are praying against that as she fights this sickness. Thanks for checking in :)

AMEN! I'm so happy that the fever is gone! I'm praying that the cold doesn't turn into a sinus infection, I know how those antibiotics can weaken the immune system. Hopefully everyone will be better in a couple of days. Take care and God Bless!:)

Yay! Praise God for "little" things like fevers going away! I'm sorry to hear how heavy this last week has been for you. I pray Jacob will adjust soon. It's so hard when we make a decision and feel so at peace about it and then it doesn't go smoothly. It seems like it should if it's God's will. I've been trying to learn that lesson myself - that it doesn't really work that way. God gives us enough grace and wisdom for the moment we're in. Your family is certainly a testament to that. I pray you will have all the doses you need to make it through! Love you guys!
