Sunday 9:30 PM-- Big Update

Samuel is fast asleep. He went down easily at 8:00 PM. He had a rough day. The stomach bug is taking its toll on him. We are praying that tomorrow is a better day because today he only ate 6 oz. of yogurt, 2 tiny pretzels, and 2 tiny pieces of bread. The doctor recommended soy milk, and he drank 5-6 ounces of it today. That is all that we could get him to drink. I'm worn out from offering him so much food and drink that he refused. It's sad because he doesn't understand that Mommy and Daddy are concerned about him getting dehydrated. He is too little to comprehend the consequences of not drinking or eating. Thankfully, my mom is going to come over tomorrow to help me coax him into eating and drinking. It has been hard to deal with; I could use her help!

As of tonight, our house is no longer on the market. We're looking for a new realtor, so you can pray for us to find one that meets our needs. I'm interviewing a realtor at 2:00 PM tomorrow (Monday).

Our biggest news is that we are taking a step of faith and moving to Atlanta in two weeks. You can pray for us as we move and leave the house in the hands of a realtor. This is going to be a big transition for us! Last, but not least, we are thrilled because Vance will be joining our family in 4 months. We are so blessed and thank the Lord each day for him! I am so excited that I will have a little down time before Vance arrives since I have spent the last 8 months trying to sell the house and being a single parent during the week. I have prayed and cried out to the Lord to be with my husband again. God is good, and we are trusting in Him as we take this step of faith.

I will update tomorrow on Samuel's health. Hasta manana!


  1. Well, we woke up this morning with Bryce throwing up. Hmmm....

    I sure hope Samuel is over his bug and that you're feeling better, too.

    Remind me again...when is spring coming?!?!?!

  2. Where are ya'll planning to live? I wondered what the deal was when I got the appliance email.
