Official Declaration...

Official declaration of the day: Ellie is hereby forbidden from catching any more stomach viruses!!!

After last winter's bout that knocked her flat on her back for more than a week and ended with a trip to the ER, we've been so anxious about her catching another stomach bug eventually and really hoped that it would be a really long time!

Well, here we are ten months later and she's got one. We were optimistic when last Tuesday she threw up twice, developed a fever, then seemed tired, but otherwise fine after a couple of days. We hoped that that was the end of it.

Sadly it was not to be, as after five days or so of seeming mostly fine it's returned with a vengeance! After being up all night with her last night where she was vomiting every last half-teaspoonful of liquid that crossed her lips, I was bracing myself for a repeat of last year's long drawn out horror. Ugh--why do these things happen when Glen is out of town?

Although she now has officially thrown up more than any of my other kids combined (seriously), I am happy to report that she finally seemed to have turned the corner this morning and has begun keeping small amounts of liquids down.

I can not even tell you what a huge relief and answer to prayer this is for me! I have been having a hard enough time keeping everything together with Glen out of the country for a couple of weeks....I didn't need an ER visit too.

We have been praying for her recovery too. Here's hoping she is really on the road to regaining her health and strength this time.

Hi Lara! I'm so glad you stopped by our blog. Your family is beautiful. I remember meeting up with you on campus at BYU and helping Kristina babysit Spencer, who was just the cutest little baby in the world. I see that he's grown quite a bit since then!

This has been so fun catching up with all the Crains! I love, love, love your family so much! I don't know if I would have made it through my first few years of being a member if it weren't for my seminary teacher and my bishop! ;-)

You do a great job blogging. Did you know there is a company that will turn your blog into a book? I've done one already and it's super easy and pretty reasonably priced.

Anyways, this is getting way too long for a blog comment. I hope Ellie feels better soon. Ryan says hi, too!

We sure hope that you feel better really soon.

We love you Ellie...

P.S. Howdy Andrea and Ryan. It was good to hear from you guys-even if indirectly through a blog.

Hope that you guys are doing well.
