frowny faced


Poor Eliot! Why does he get the sickest when we get colds? He was in pretty bad shape by the time we found a doctor. Thank goodness we were able to get an appointment for the next day. The good new is - we brought our breathing machine and the breathing machine has helped a lot. The bad news is Eliot is too sick to be able to take inhaled steroids and we have to give him oral Prednisone which does the same thing to a child that it does to an athlete who abuses steroids. It might take a day or so to kick in but Eliot gets very aggressive and I don't know how to deal with it. Please pray that he will get better soon, that I will discipline him in an understanding way and deal with him in love until he gets better. Sigh ... I guess that means we won't be going to Washington DC this weekend as we had planned. Oh well, some other time ...

Oh, poor Eliot!
Poor you!

I thought I had discipline challenges today. I will pray for you in your sweet request for discipline with understanding.

I think that's what it's all about, in general, isn't it? How often
I forget. Will you pray for me too?

Thanks!

Poor litt dude. I didn't realize he used a breathing machine? Does he have asthma? I'll be praying for you guys. By the way, I'm loving all the posts about your adventures! It's so cool...it's like you guys are on this really extended vacation on the east coast! How fun!
