Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Friday Catch Up

This post should probably be titled "Still Waiting." I feel like I've been waiting all week...

...waiting for Faith's fever to go away, and it has not. Waiting for the cough to settle, and it has not. My daughter has been in bed for one week and one day. That is remarkable. If you really knew this girl, you'd know she doesn't stay in one place for five minutes, much less a week. She doesn't want to get out of bed, even though I told her she can have the sofa in the family room with the TV. If it were not for the fact that she is at least eating, and being very cranky, I'd be really really worried. As it is I'm just really worried. We saw our pediatrician on Wednesday and he says it's just a bad cold. Really bad.

I was waiting for beads so I could have something to do while I worried, but they came yesterday. So now there are St. Andrew chaplets in the Etsy shop if you need something to keep track of those prayers.

And I was waiting for Friday to come so I could have my MRI (because you know how excited I get about MRIs). I just had my last sip of anything before my 6 p.m. appointment (no anything by mouth 4 hours prior).

I wish you were here, so you could wait with me.


  1. Praying for Faith to get well and for you too. I wish I could be there to wait with you!

  2. So sorry to hear Faith is still feeling so poorly! You'll be in my prayers these evening - we'll be at Mass and holy hour while you're at your test. Hope all goes well.

  3. Oh man! Hope this doesn't sound silly, but did they do an influenza test on her? Poor girl. Poor mama. Prayers and hugs to you all up there!!! May St. Nicholas intercede on your behalf for Faith's recovery.

  4. Waiting with you from here, and praying!

  5. Praying that Faith is feeling better and that your MRI was successful in finding a definite diagnosis.

  6. I hope Faith is doing better by now and you had a successful MRI with a lead for the doctor to diagnose you. May your Advent be blessed.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
