I knew we wouldn't be able to keep Lilah from getting sick forever...I just thought we might be able to make it a little longer than a month. When Garrett came down with the sniffles last week, I was still optimistic. We took all kinds of precautions, but when he started to look like a poster child for "virus" and I could practically see the germs floating in the air, I knew I was kidding myself. Sure enough, she's sick:( So far, so good though-she's smiling, eating, and not running a fever. It's always terrible to have a sick child, but Lilah's condition ups the ante quite a bit. I'm a nervous wreck, of course, because a little cold is how it all started. But, her doctor tells me that he thinks she's much stronger now than she was before her last cold and he thinks she'll be fine (but he wants to see us again tomorrow, a Sunday, anyway). To add to my ulcer, she's lost weight again....ahhh! It really is one hurdle after another. But, I remind myself that that is life, that God is good, and He is constant and faithful. And then I go take a nap.
