And Then Rosie Was Sent Home with Foot and Mouth disease?

So yesterday – Jose had to go to school and pick up Rosie because they thought she has this Foot/Mouth thing which is really contagious but also very RARE for humans. She does have blisters on the outside of her mouth but I didn’t think that was what she had. We don’t have any insurance for the family and we were trying to think of a way to get Rosie checked out without any more added expense. We remembered Dr. Wilkes who went to Haiti with us years ago. I wasn’t even sure if we still had his number or knew how to find him. But God is SO GOOD! We called him and within a few hours Rosie was checked out, had her prescriptions, and was home with a Popsicle – all for free! PRAISE THE LORD!! 

Sometimes its hard to see the rainbow through the clouds and our family has been under a SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING for weeks now! But it was just nice that even though she was sick – we got her treated so quickly. 

I hope to be discharged tomorrow! It will be so nice when I can lay in my bed and not be interrupted all through the night with blood pressures and heart monitors! Finally –  I see that rainbow peeking through the clouds…..

  1. Wow – it just keeps coming. I was just sharing with our small group the other night to pray for you and Jose. I told them you guys have had one thing after another. Then I read about Gigi & Rosie. We will continue to lift you all up in prayer. We’ll be there in a couple of days and we’ll help love on Gigi for you. We will miss you guys. Take care and we’ll keep praying.

  2. Wow – The first thing that came to my mind was “when it rains it pours” and your wording of SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING couldn’t be a better description. The fact that you can see a rainbow at all – just shows us how amazing you are. I think i would want to go hide under a bed and scream! You are absolutely AMAZING!

  3. Love you! Seems like if it weren’t for bad luck you wouldn’t have any luck at all! We love you and we’re so glad that Rosie got to see the doctor so quickly!!

  4. good old hand foot and mouth disease….every preschool and nursery has to battle it at least once a year, really common with the little ones! As a teacher I was always so scared I would get it! I’m glad she seems to be doing better and you as well!! We’ll be heading up to St Louis in a few days, I hope Gigi is doing better too. Miss you guys and talk to you soon! Love ya!
