Long and short of it...

Chase has a respiratory infection (bronchitis). I thought he was doing better after the doctors yesterday (fever broke RIGHT before we went in, of course) but this morning the fever spiked back up and he was just absolutely miserable. Good ole Amoxicillin to the rescue. I am hoping it kicks in soon although the doc said it could take a couple days.

I am still planning on going to the wedding tomorrow (barring anything life threatening popping up) but I would SO like to see him feeling just a little bit better before I board a plane. Saying my prayers now... if you feel so inclined, I would love to have your prayers as well.

In the ongoing olive branch news... I received an email from my aunt yesterday. She was very excited to hear from me and that it was an answer to prayer. I want to put it out there that I am approaching this very cautiously. First, anyone can use the phrase 'answer to prayer'... I am not assuming she is a God fearing Christian ready to make ammends for all past wrongs. Second, I am vaguely aware of why she was so angry at my mother and I feel the same way my mother did... so, if things continue the same way, I won't stand for it. That being said... I am glad to have heard from her and I hope things are different.

What a bizarre journey.

You go and have a wonderful time, and thank God that you have a husband that is capable of handling any situation. Praying for Chase (and Adam :) ). Enjoy yourself, make some great memories!

Glad that Chase will be on the mend soon. Hope you have a great trip!

it always happens....the child breaks his fever, and is running around, smiling just as the doctor comes in. He'll be fine.....go and have fun.

Yeah...the "answer to prayer" line could be a set up. Thread lightly:)
