RSV, Pneumonia, Stomach Bug, and a Bridal Shower!

So much has been going on in our home the past few of weeks... Abel and Belle both got RSV. Belle got better, but Abel's RSV turned into Pneumonia. He was admitted into the hospital on Valentine's Day (also my birthday) and was discharged the following Sunday morning. While he was in the hospital, I caught a stomach bug. So, Belle had to go stay with my mom at her house. I was at home very sick and Aaron was in the hospital with Abel. I was so sick that I ended up in the ER dehydrated and had to have two doses of IV fluids. I did drink, but I couldn't keep any liquids down.  Abel had his follow-up post discharge appointment with the pediatrician last Friday morning and he is doing great now - Praise God!  Right after his appointment, I had to drive to Atlanta for my sister's bridal shower. I, her matron of honor, and her maid of honor were throwing the shower so I couldn't miss it. It was a relief to know that Abel was doing so well when I left. My MIL came to help with the twins so Aaron could work over the weekend. However, he came down with the stomach bug and couldn't work on Saturday, so my MIL had to take care of all 3 of them! Bless her heart. We are on the mend now and just praying that the twins don't get the stomach bug next. Below are some pictures over the past few weeks.

Why our God Isn't a God of Second Chances...and that is Good News!

Here is a post that Aaron recently wrote for our local church's blog. There is lots of truth in his post and a lot of reason to celebrate that God isn't a God of second chances!
