Our little Nehemiah is sick. Sunday afternoon, he started throwing up and continued throughout the day and night. Monday, he it was coming out of "both ends"...it is Wednesday evening, and he is still losing everything and looks like he feels pretty miserable.
He seems to get sick with something every 3-4 weeks and has always been delicate of health. The strange thing (if this is a stomach bug) is that nobody else in the family has gotten it. I have been praying for the rest of the children to stay healthy as well as for little guy to get better, so the Lord may be answering my prayer.
Of course, I always begin to wonder if it is something other than a flu when he is the only one who is sick. He's had a low grade fever off and on too.
My doctor called today and wants me to go get my blood drawn again tomorrow morning because my iron was low last week when they tested me and he wants to check it again. I'm not sure why since he said he still plans on doing the c-section on Friday morning.
Anyways, I would feel awful if I had to go the hospital when Nehemiah is still so sick. I had to stay home with him Sunday evening, and am home during prayer meeting tonight as well. If he is still sick by tomorrow afternoon, I will probably call my doctor and see if we can postpone the delivery. I know he won't be too keen on that as I already talked him into a week later than he wanted.
Please pray that the Lord will give us wisdom and that little Nehemiah will feel better soon.
Daniel just called me as I was finishing this post...the lady from our church who is going to be watching our children on Friday just found out her cousin died today. He was only 28 or 29 and died from a heart attack. In Mexico, the funeral is the same day or the next; they do more of a wake than a funeral~ it lasts from the evening through the following morning. Daniel will probably be going after church tonight. Pray he'll be able to share the gospel there; often they allow people to get up and speak during it. We have a busy weekend ahead too, so please pray the Lord gives him strength too as he'll not get much sleep tonight.
