Wow!

All I can say is WOW! I am amazed at the women in my life. Some of you are ones that just read my blogs and I don't even know what your faces look like. I don't know you in person but I know you in heart and spirit. I am so glad that God has given me the ability to be transparent, otherwise I would not experience all of your words that fill me up. ALL OF YOU!

Well, I just got home from the Doctor's office. This morning Josiah was burning up , eyes rolling back and would not walk. I WAS TERRIFIED. I called my mom and she began to pray for him. It truly was an act of God. I called and told the Doctor's office that my son seemed very sick, shaking, high fever and the office manager said bring him in NOW! I was shocked because this doesn't usually happen. Then, we get there and the office manager sees Ava Beth and says, "Sweetie, you don't look good either." The pediatrician who we have never seen (we always see the nurse practioner) walks up and wants to see both of my kids immediately. ANOTHER thing that never happens! I was shocked! No waiting, no waiting in the exam room, no waiting at all! Josiah had 103.4 temp with STREP throat and AB has an ear infection. The ear infection is a first for me, my kids have never had them! So, we have all of our medicine and we are now on the road to recovery, $100 later! Co pays and drugs! But, they only charged me one copay for both kids. It may have been an accident on their part but a blessing on God's. Today, I could feel God loving on me. It was too easy and I know that came from HIM. The Doctor said, "Josiah with that kind of fever, how are you even talking?" HA! He never shuts up! Don't know where he gets that from! :) Actually, my mom was praying the whole time and Jeremy's mom was with me, so Josiah's spirit brightened despite the high fever, another God thing!

Thank you all so much, I love each of you for what you have poured into my life. Pray for my babies!

More to come later...

I am sorry your babies are so sick, I will definitely be praying for them as well as you! I hope you have many more God moments today...where you know He is with you, holding you.

all I can say.. with a smile on my face..He can show His love and Himself to us in ways we understand. That is how critical you are to God. He can sweep you up and say you need to be seen now!!! mmmmm I can see the words "God Thing" on the whole deal....on your heart, on your feelings, on your babies and on their charts. whoo hoo!!!

Amanda,

God bless you and your babies! May they feel better very soon!

P.S.-your very fortunate not to have experienced the ear infection thing! Gracie had so very many and we finally put tubes in and presto they were gone! Now tubes have recently disappeared so hopefully we won't go right back down that constant ear infection road!

Laura Archer said...

Yes...WOW is how this is all summed up! God knows what your going through and He speaks to you now thru all these beautiful women in your life! You have an awesome support group...you are so blessed!
I will continue to pray for little Josiah and Ava Beth. Poor babies, but they have a great mommy!

Hi Amanda,

As we journey down this road of getting to know each other, it won't take you long to find out that I am a huge believer in looking for the causes of illness, and not just treating the symptom.

Let me give you one quick tip if I may....for as long as Josiah has an ear infection, do not let him drink milk, have cheese or any other milk products.

I won't go into any long, drawn out explanation here, but milk products will cause phlegm (sp?) to pool in any cavity..especially ear/nose/throat.

And don't worry about calcium for now...cows grow lots of strong bones and teeth just by eating grass..!

I'll pray for you and your family tonight...

WOW! I can't believe that happened. I'm crying just reading about it from the sad and from the blessings of God. I'm so Glad you have this outlet to reach out to others. The Power of Prayer is soo great. I may have told you about this but one time before a surgery, I asked many prayer groups for prayer and when the time came for me to wait in the waiting room I felt the Prayer like a Prayer Drug. I was soo low key and extremely calm, when previously I was so freaked out. Thank you God!
