Tired and exhausted......

Hello! I am going to start by saying that this has been the most trying few weeks ever!! I am tired and exhausted and am continuing to be tired and exhausted until this thing passes! First of all Samuel started with a terrible ear infection that would not go away. Even 2 days before Christmas, while we were out of town I ended up in the emergency room with him and his ears. He did better until we got home and it flared into yucky puss filled ears and a terrible few days. After shots of Antibiotics in the doctors office and a weeks worth of strong antibiotics he seems to be finally over it today. Ellie is very sick. Friday at about 3 in the afternoon she started throwing up. It started every half hour and by six was every ten minutes. The poor girl couldn't stop. Finally at 4 in the morning after around 25-30 times vomitting I took her to the emergency room. After 4 tries attempting to get an IV in and being catheterized to get a pee sample she finally was all hooked up. After getting a few hours of fluid the vomiitting stopped. We hadn't gotten any sleep so we went home to rest. We slept until around 4:00 pm Saturday and she was burning up with fever and now she had diareah! All through the night it was fever and diareah and then Sunday she wouldn't stop with the diareah and wouldn't drink anything. Then it scared me. She wouldn't wake up for me and when she did it was as if I wasn't there. I took her in and they addmitted her. I was in there until Tuesday with her. They gave her fluids for 2 days and then she finally started to drink a little, and thank God started to act like herself again!!! We came home Tueday to a sick and throwing up Josiah and Ethan. Josiah seems a little better but...Ethan has been throwing up all day today, and then Ellie woke up throwing up again. I took her to the Dr. today and they gave her a shot of Phinegran (sp) for her vomitting and we crossed our fingers and prayed that she wouldn't have to go back to the hospital. She is still throwing up a few times here and there. Pray that our family will get over this disgusting virus. We are all tired and worn out! Thank you for your prayers!!

It's about time!

Time for yet another blog! I haven't been on here forever! We are doing good! We are in the process of a lot of different changes which are very good! Our church plant has merged with another church plant and we are combining forces!! Doubled up in ministry is an awsome thing!! Adam is now the associate pastor of the inner city church SOLID ROCK--who is moving to a new location reaching East Toledo and Oregon. Adam is head over the evangelism, cell groups and the youth department. We are still looking for a building in East Toledo, so we can turn it into an evangelistic coffee house! We are SO excited about what God is doing and how God has set everything up with perfection! It is neat to see His hand moving upon everything that we are doing!! Continue to pray for our ministry!

Everything else is good. My children have been getting sick again alot. I hate winter! Samuel has had an ear infection for about 3 months now and it won't go away! I took him in today and it was so bad there was puss and yucky stuff in his ears and the doctors had to give him two shots of antibiotics in the office. Poor little guy is miserable!!!!! Ethan has a little cyst on his face and I have to go see a plastic surgeon to see if I can get it removed! Ughhh! Anyway...Continue to pray for us. Hopefully soon I can get some more pics of the kids on here. My othere ones are so old!!
