Back at the hospital!!!!

Well after 3 1/2 days at home we are back at Children's Hospital. Last night we headed up to the ER with Little Bug because he was coughing and sneezing terribly and his work of breathing was dramatically increased. Sure enough, that pesky cold that Randy got eventually filtered through me and poor Connor ended up with it as well. They admitted us here at the hospital for observation and we are hopeful that it will only be a few days. Both Randy and I feel terrible that we gave him a cold after only being home for a few short days. The docs tell us that most of this stuff is routine and we can't protect him from colds forever, but it's hard that it had to happen so soon.

Randy is feeling much better, and I on the other hand am feeling lousy!!! On top of this terrible cold, I fell down our stairway in the middle of the night on Wednesday and I feel like my body has been in a car accident. Boy oh boy, when it rains it pours. We must remember that this too shall pass and we will all be on the road to better health soon.

Yesterday before taking Connor to the ER I was able to attend the funeral services for baby Jonah. It was a beautiful rememberance of him and an incredible testimony of his family's faith in God. May we all become better people and may we have deeper relationships with the Lord because of what we walk through here on earth.

All our Lovebug Hugs,

Randy & Lori,
I am so sorry that you are back at the hospital, but it is true, you can't protect him from every cold. You just can't help it. I feel so bad that you are all going through it. Our household is currently fighting it too and if you have what I have, YUCK! I hope you feel better really soon. We'll be praying for you. As for your fall Lori, have you been to the doctor to make sure you're alright? Please take care of yourself.

We love you all! I'm sure Little But will recover from this cold quickly and get right back home! :)

So sorry things have taken a turn for the worse and will be praying that it will all turn around quickly and you will all be back home, healthy and whole.

We will understand it all better by and by and in the meantime, keeping in mind that God is with you in the midst of it all with His loving care and mercy. You are such witnesses of that and may the Lord continue using you to bring glory to His name.

I sure hope little Connor is feeling much better as well as you and Randy. I wasn't expecting to see that you were back at Children's. You are only supposed to go there now on for appointments. Lori, you are a precious gift to not only your family but to all the families you have made friends with at Children's. I admire you so much. Get that Little Bug feeling better and get back home soon.
Keeping you in our prayers as well as baby Michael, Stone and Jonah's families. May their hearts feel some peace.
Your Friend, Susie.

Dear Randy - Lori - Connor: Your names are continually on the lips of many. Your intercessors have not stepped out of line, they remain faithful, interceding when your strength seems faint. May you draw strength from knowing many, including the KING of all kings is standing ever so close. As one standing in the gap, I can hear the whispers among those of us in line: "hurry up, I want to pray", "God is continually working", "What a testimony this family has been to multitudes", "He is the cutest bug I have ever seen - do you think he bites?", "Has anyone seen Herman...I heard he is an angel?", "Have you seen the way Connor's Mom coos and awes over her own - I hope everyone gets a Mommy like that.", "What about that Daddy he fights for his family and the country - he takes multi-tasking to a whole new level.", Okay, Okay, break it's time to get focused we need to pray the family home and home for good!
