Home Again

It's been a rough week and a half.  There are fourteen messages on the answering machine, tons of emails to respond to, and the mess from the spaghetti sauce I made ten days ago to clean up.



Emily got sick on the 21st.  She started throwing up around noon and by 8:00 p.m. she was throwing up every ten-fifteen minutes or so.  Our trip to the ER ended with her being admitted.  The local hospital transferred her to WVU on Monday and we're home today.  

Lots of tears, vomit, poop, and blessings later, we are home.  It looks like Em will be fine long term but it was an emotionally exhausting ten days.  More later.

In the meantime, if you're waiting for a response from us to something we'll probably need a few days to regroup. 

Thank you for the prayer and caring.  We have been blown away by the love we have been shown.    



  1. I almost called you since you hadn't posted in so long.We are still praying for you all and little Emily as she learns how to adjust to having the blessing of your family. Hang in there galfriend..know that I am especially praying for YOU!<3

  2. No phone call or response needed.......just so glad to hear that all is well. I'll be anxious to hear all of the details, but take your time, get your family settled, and REST!
    Much love,

  3. Oh my goodness, friend! I wish I had checked the blog earlier. Any insight in to what triggered the vomiting this time around? We will be praying for all of you as you recover and rest and regroup! And, probably as you do a few loads of laundry post puking!
