He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

The Fevers are Back...

But this time they reside with Noah. Last night he started to run a fever. I didn't think too much of it, gave him some tylenol and went to bed. This morning he seemed fine but around noon his fever was back. As luck would have it, I had already had a well child visit scheduled for Adam so I took Noah along and "Dr. Carol" squeezed him in for me. Turns out the poor child has a sore throat as well as an ear infection. Wonderful. More meds or the medicine cabinet. I swear our family is paying for our doctor's children's college education.

Adam's well visit went great. He is average for height which I find hard to believe because he seems so tall, and he is only in the 5th percentile for weight. That's remained constant for him so nothing to worry about. He's just a skinny kid. Doesn't take after his momma! The boys are exempt from any of the shots they need since Joshua can not be around any live viruses. I had hoped that the delay in immunizations wouldn't effect Noah but since Joshua relapsed it will. All the shots you need to start school will have to be put on hold for him as well as the twins until Joshua is out of treatment a good 6 months to a year.

I hope everyone's summer is going well and that you are enjoying some family time. I can't believe it is already the middle of July. I have to be honest though and say that I am looking forward to fall. It's my favorite season and always seems to put us back into routine. I live for routine. It's that type A personality thing.
