nightmare of a weekend!

i am so glad that it is monday. i hope that this week can go a little better than the last one. here is a little recap of our weekend. friday--took "M" to primary children's hospital because he could not breathe or stop coughing. the doctor sent us there because he had progressively gotten worse throughout the week. sunday--i took "A" to church while "K" stayed home with the little ones. in his primary class they were learning about joseph smith and his leg operation. it is a very graphic story, but one of my all time favorites! i guess that it was too much for "A"--he turned white, slid off his chair, and started jerking around on the floor. by the time i got to him he was still white/green but completely alert. our good friend took us home and he helped "K" give him a blessing. in the meantime my amazing family dropped everything that they were doing and came to be with him and help us out. the doctor ran some tests--on his heart and a cbc. everything looked good. after a complete exam and the doctor speaking with his primary teacher on the phone he thinks that it wasn't a seizure, but that the story was too much for him. i pray that that is what it was! then to top it all off--baby "H" was in the kids care 2X last night with RSV. her stats were very borderline. she did sleep great throughout the night--so hopefully things will turn around soon! i feel so blessed to have the medical care that we do, the priesthood, wonderful friends, and the most amazing family in the world!

Oh my goodness. I would be wishing for Monday as well!
Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and please let me know if you need anything at all!
I'm so glad you hve such a wonderful family willing to drop everything for you.

On a side note, my daughter passes out anytime she see's or hears anything like that too. On top of that, she also has a condition that I won't even begin to try to explain, that causes her to passout and sometimes have seizure like convulsions. It's awful and scary for anyone to witness. It happened many times at school. Call me if it ever happens again and I will tell you about it so you can have him checked out.
Hope you have a healthy week.

There sure were many prayers with your family Sunday evening. How are you holding up? If you need anything I can pitch in where ever you need me.

I hope that A is ok now!! I am a little nervous because tomorrow I teach the same lesson about JS and his infected leg. I am a lesson behind because my class had to do sharing time right off the bat. I plan to show that part of the animated stories of Church History, the Joseph Smith story.

I teach CTR 8, and have for over 10 years, and never had any kind of reaction like that. Poor little guy. Hope you life is going better.
