Well, after I posted this morning I tried to get a few things done and answer a few phone calls. I went to the living room to play with the boys for a while and Ben was just laying on his little sofa. I picked him up and took his temp again and it was 104! He was completely lethargic. I called the doctor and could not get ahold of him so I took Ben to the ER just to be safe. I am one of those moms. I run them to the doctor often because I would just rather be safe.

So Ben and I spent the entire afternoon in the ER to find out he has a virus and there isn't much we can do for him. His temp peaked at 105. He has been held all day. Howard is sleeping with him now. So, he could really use your prayers. His fever is down a bit but still has not broken. Please pray that he bounces back soon and that I have the stamina to be all that he needs. I am so tired right now. This has been my first break.

Thank you Chris for dinner last night, especially the Cadbury Mini Eggs Dark Chocolate!

Thank you Missy for tonight's dinner it was also great especially the Dove Ice cream! You guys really know me! That ice cream is how I am currently unwinding!

Please pray for Ben and for us tomorrow as we head in for another biophysical profile to check on Happy's well being. We are praying things still look pretty good and that we will be home immediately following...we don't want another hospital visit until Monday!

Thank you all for being faithful in prayer! We love you!

Oh precious woman, my heart aches for you. I am praying for healing for sweet Ben. And for peace that surpasses all understanding to envelope you and your dear husband tonight. I am praying that even now the Lord would begin preparing Luke for what is to come with his baby brother. Hope was almost four when Miller Grace was born and seeing her hurt was perhaps the most painful part of it all, so my prayers are definitely with you. God will give you words. You'll feel like you're flying by the seat of your pants, but He'll be holding you. I don't know what to say. I know nothing I do say will ease the wound in your heart over hearing such frightening things about your baby boy, your son, your Happy. You and I both know one thing from experience: Happy will be wonderful. The time with him, however long or short, will be beautiful, sacred, and more than you could have ever dreamed. Somehow, some way, you will make it through this. And, through it all, your boy will truly be HAPPY. Find your joy in the Lord and keeping praying for peace instead of comfort. He will not fail you. And I will not fail to lift you to Him and to rally everyone I can to do the same. Thank you for giving us the honor of knowing Happy and bringing him and his precious, exhausted momma to the throne tonight.

Poor Ben! Kristy, you must be beyond exhausted. Praying that you are able to get some rest tonight, that your body can rejuvenate for the day ahead of you.

Evie & I say extra prayers for Happy every night.

Kristy, I am praying right now for Ben and for his fever to break and the virus to be healed. Praying Gods protection over you that it does not pass to you right now. Praying for Happy to grow extra strong in the days ahead, God knows what is needed. Praying for you to be able to get sweet rest tonight from your exhaustion. Asking God for His peace and comfort for you as you go for your appointment tomorrow. Praying for a miracle for Happy and for you.

Love you, Laurie in Ca.

I am praying for you and your family! I am praying that Ben wakes up this morning healed of his virus, and that you and your husband can get much needed rest to prepare to meet Happy on Monday if that is God's plan. And I pray that God will keep Happy and your family wrapped safe and secure in his loving arms whatever the outcome may be. I am asking God to grant you peace.

I ran across a post about you on Emily's blog, and clicked on your blog to let you know there is another family praying for your Happy and your family. I pray for God's blessings and miracles for your sweet boy!

Sweet Kristy,
Dark Chocolate can do so much for my mental state of mind...I am so glad that sometimes God sends us sweetness we can taste...literally.

I will pray for the family, that all will be well with the next appt and that sickness will not drain your family.

Looking forward to Monday with great anticipation...Here comes Happy!!!

Know that a stranger is praying for you and your family. Isn't marvelous to marvel in a God that allows us to carry burdens for those we don't know? You are in my heart.
