Prayers Please

I have almost completely recovered from my cough but just as I was getting better, the kids caught it. Nate wasn't so bad and he recovered quickly. Abi and Kenny have been sick for over 3 weeks now and, although Abi seems to be recovering, Kenny is still as sick as day 1.

I've been talking to the American Dr. in UB and we're both kind of baffled as to what it is. Kenny coughs until his little body looks like he's convulsing, gags, and almost always throws up. At night he has periods of apnea where he'll wake up blue and gasping for air. This has had us very worried and shaken up for some time and now I'm just plain exhausted. I wake up with him, sometimes up to 6 times a night. During the day he only sleeps for about 2o minute stretches then wakes up coughing and very cranky.

His nursing has picked up again so that's a relief. He's not much into eating but is drinking a lot.

I want to ask you to be praying for him and Abi to be completely healed. I also ask that you pray for me and Hetee, that we'll get the rest we need. My body is protesting the sleepless nights and added stress with headaches, weight loss and painful mouth ulcers. The tears come easily but I cling to Gods promise that He is our Healer.

On my homepage today's scripture was Matt.10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Just for you! You're in my prayers!
