Update on Mal and the fam...

We took Mallory back to the dr today because her arm wasn't improving. The dr referred Mal to an Ortopedic dr (who stayed open an hour later just to see us) who said that her arm wasn't properly adjusted. He adjusted it and popped it back into place. It breaks my heart knowing that she's been walking around with a dislocated elbow for the past 3 days, but I'm also thankful we went to the dr today because she was diagnosed with bronchitis, along with Patrick earlier today. I couldn't believe it! She had been coughing a lot at night, but no other symptoms. I told the dr that Ethan has been having the same symptoms, and praise God that he gave me an antibiotic for him, too. Our kids have been through the ringer lately and given that my mom has been here since Wed has been a blessing that God knew we needed. Oh, what perfect timing the Lord has!

Just a few of the blessings in God's timing:
1. Mom has been here this week to help with the craziness
2. The ER didn't properly adjust her arm which caused me to take Mal to the dr who diagnosed her with brochitis and she now has a perscription
3. I have not caught any of the illness...which is great because I have a performance this weekend!

This is a reminder for all of us...the Lord is in control....and we need to praise Him in all things!

Happy to hear Mal's arm is finally feeling better and that the family has some meds to get them all well.

Love U All!!!
