Say A Little Prayer

Laura Anne has had a cough for a few weeks, but just since her check-up last Wednesday it has gotten worse. Friday night she went to bed with a fever. Saturday and Sunday she hardly ate anything. Sunday afternoon her fever was 102.1 so I called her doctor. They wanted us to bring her in and after examining her the doctor confirmed that Laura Anne has pneumonia. It's not very advanced, which we're thankful for, but she's still to be on an antibiotic for four days. We need to take her back to the doctor on Thursday for a check-up.

Needless to say, she's uncomfortable, clingy, fussy, irritable and so on. Night time is really hard on all of us. So if you all could please remember her (and us) in your prayers for the next few days we would greatly appreciate it. So far today, she is eating a little better which is definitely a good thing.

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas! Don't forget the Baby in the manger. I'm reminded of the lyrics to a song I like:

Hope that you don't mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But long awaited Holy Stranger
Make yourself at home
Bring your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
World now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us unto us is born
So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
perfect Son of God
