And an Update

Well, there's nothing like a fever of 104.3 to bring a mother to her knees. When I couldn't get a nurse to speak with at the doctor's office before 5 p.m. (apparently they were busy seeing A LOT of this in their office yesterday!), I called the one who would know what to do and how to calm me down....MOM! She stayed on the phone with me, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out how quickly a tepid bath brought down the fever. I was actually relieved to see readings in the 102 range! (Thanks, Mom, for being there!)

Last night, while talking with her before we went to bed, I walked into the living room and found Jerry on his knees cradling Cody as he slept peacefully on his matress, praying over him. Daddy was calling the One who heals, comforts, and brings down fevers!

Today, Cody has had some water, jello, and lots of love from Caden. Little brother is also having lots of fun pouncing on brother's mattress and giving him lots of hugs and "pats." I think he enjoys having the mattress on the living room floor! (Scroll down to see Wordless Wednesday!)

Hope you all have a great day and thank you for praying for us.

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song." ~Psalm 28:7

I remember the first time I saw a 104 temp. It really freaked me out. But then the doctor told me it's normal. (too bad it STILL freaks me out)

How blessed are you to have such a wonderful man. Him praying over Cody sent me chills!! Get better soon little guy.

What a great daddy to be praying over your little man! I don't think I would have thought of a tepid bath!! Great mom advice! I remember a bad fever I had as a child and my parents put me in a cold bath with ice. I remember feeling I would freeze but I remember the fever broke shortly after b/c everyone began to leave me alone finally! :) I pray Cody continues recovery with no further lapses in fever!! Many blessings to you!
