Our house has been struck with some sort of the sickies. It started off with Tony, Halainah and I thought we were in the clear. Halainah was struck with it on Saturday with a fever going almost as high as 103. And now I have it. Halainah seems to be getting better. She's snuggled up in front of her early Christmas present which is a portable DVD player watching Elmo. She has her favorite Bear, Elmo and Marty and is wrapped in her Tinkerbell blanket that her cousin Alyssa and Billy gave her. So cute! And I'm going back to bed. Every muscle in my body hurts and since I already have Asthma, any type of chest cold almost makes it unbearable to breathe. But as much as our household is battling the ugly sickies it is not us that needs your prayers.

Please keep my father in law in your prayers and thoughts. He has been battling Lymphoma for about 8 months or so. He has gone through 8 or 9 rounds of chemo and was put on a 3 month hiatus because he was doing so well. For the past week he has been extremely weak and almost reverting back to the way he was when this whole nightmare began. Last night he went to the emergency room and was admitted for Pneumonia. Pneumonia is dangerous enough as it is, and even more dangerous for someone in his heath crisis. So if you would pray for him that he will pull through this and regain his strength back. He needs all of his strength to battle the ugly Cancer beast.

And here's a little sneak peak of Halainah on her very first birthday party home with her forever family. I know I promised to blog about her party...but right now...I just don't have the strength.

Thanks so much from the bottom of our hearts for your pray

I got sick after the party and it took two weeks to get rid of it (bronchitis). I never ran a fever but did need the antibiotics, cough suppresent & an inhaler. If you haven't gone to the doctor just go, I suffered for nothing when the drugs did make me feel so much better.
Love to you all!
