Parker's Blessing

Sunday Parker started complaining of a sore throat and sometimes you just blow it off thinking it will go away and kids are over-reacting. Monday he stayed home from school but it wasn't until night time that he was crying that it was hurting, but of course it was after Dr's were closed so Wayne gave him a blessing and we gave him motrin and sent him to bed. He woke up during the night crying that the blessing didn't work and now his ear was hurting. We gave him more motrin and sent him to bed again and then at 830 called the Dr to get him in. He ended up with strep and an ear infection (which he hasn't had since he was 2 because he had tubes put in). He told us to call and ENT to get his tonsils and adnoids out. He said "there are big tonsils and there are HUGE tonsils, his are HUGE". So we called and there was a cancelation the next day for the consult. We called to get the surgery set up and they can do it Feb 1. They said he would be down for 10-14 days. We'll make sure to get lots of homework for him, HA HA!!! Wayne talked to him about his blessing and talked to him about what was said. He also said if his throat had gotten better, he wouldn't have had to go see the Dr. and have him see his tonsils to see that they really needed to come out. Blessings aren't always answered in the way we would like them to be. Sometimes we have to be patient and look for the blessings.

It's Potty Time

So Brooklynn is potty training herself. She takes off her diaper and runs for the bathroom. She hasn't had any accidents yet, only in her diaper. But she has been dry more times than wet. She is so proud of herself. We told her, when she is potty trained she can get a big girl bed. She is really growing up.
