pray, think, light a candle...

We need some big prayers over here in my family. Ace is still not over this cold and he just got done getting a big dose over three days of rocephin shots, a broad spectrum antibiotic. I couldn't get his fever down below 100 for about 4 days there. He's still got a pretty persistent ear infection that I thought had gone away. Now he's breaking out all over the place, and I don't know if it's from sweating so much from breaking his fever or if it's an allergic reaction to the rocephin. The nurse told me to look out for it. If he's not better by tomorrow, I have to go back to the doctor for the 4th doggone time this week. If he is better by tomorrow, he's going down to my mama's for the night.

Also, my brother-in-law's father is getting some pretty scary surgery done. They're very private people so I don't want to go into it too much further, but I would really, really appreciate some prayers for him and his family.

My little sister's boyfriend's grandpa (got all that?) suffered a massive stroke yesterday and is in the hospital, where he may stay for a while. Pray for him, and pray for my sister who is a bit traumatized from finding him.

Thanks, y'all.

Oh Stacey! Hugs and PRAYERS are coming your way!

I hope all is well with Ace! He's a strong kid... he'll lick this darn cold/ ear infection yet :)

Dang girl. I'll give you your own prayer list!

I know two other little people (brothers) who've had the nagging cold for almost 3 weeks now. It sucks.

Ok... had to update my comment (yeah, I'm a dork!)

I prayed into Lilly's prayer box for Ace, BIL's father, sister's BF's grampa, and sister.

I also lit Lilly's candle for all of them.. and for all angel babies.

Keep us posted.

Ok will do.
I can't believe that baby is getting the ear infections since you breast fed him. That is supposed to protect them from the ear infections. Is he teething? Love it's little heart, I hate that he is sick so close to the holidays.
Hugs (( )),

Stacey, I've kept Ace on my prayer list since before he was born. ;) I'll add your family to my list, too, though.

All family matters are also in my prayers....

Lots and lots of prayers going up for you! We've been having the same kind of November here, too, so I understand! Poor little Ace! Andy and I are both allergic to Sulfa drugs and break out in a rash when we take any--the rash is a million tiny pink-ish dots, especially on our abdomen. Andy has even had blood in his "stool" (lovely word!)

Have they checked Ace at all for strep throat, by the way?

Praying, praying, praying!
