Could Use a Little Prayer

So this post is totally off the WLS topic, but our household could use a little extra prayer.  Seems like that oh-so-nasty stomach bug has hit our home.  I'm not sure exactly what it is, to be honest.  Each of the boys had headache/cold/fever symptoms last week into this weekend.  But have been fever-free yesterday and today.

Then, this morning our oldest woke up with nausea and dry heaves.  I kept him home from school.  He threw up a couple of times throughout the day coupled with diarrhea.  The youngest woke up complaining of his stomach hurting, but since there was no fever and he wasn't vomiting, he thought he could make it.  Wrong.  My phone at work rang at 10:15 because he was in the nurse's office not feeling well and since his brother had the bug, well, they sent him home.  Smart move.  Diarrhea hit him first and then vomiting at 3:00pm.  UGH!

Not only did the boys catch whatever it is that's going around, CME's Mom and step-dad were in town this weekend and my mother-in-law caught it too!  Made for a really long ride home back to Michigan for them!  (So sorry D!)  So far, CME and I haven't had the stomach issue.

I've Clorox-wiped down everything the boys could have touched.  The smell of Lysol permeates through the house.  This may seem silly to say, but I'm a little fearful of what a stomach virus would do to my pouch.  I mean, I know people get sick after gastric bypass, but if I can somehow avoid it, please God, let me!

So, if you're the praying type, will you keep our family in your prayers?  Pray that the boys and my in-laws recover quickly and pray that CME and I avoid this nasty virus!
"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14


  1. Prayed for peace, protection and healing for the ill ones.

  2. Thank you, Claire! The boys are good today...and CME and I are still healthy! Praise God!
