"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11


Do they have frequent flier points?!

Well, Nola woke up with a blazing fever so Jonathan took her to the pediatrician. I went on to school since it is my first full week, but told Jonathan to keep me posted. He called about 9:15 and said the strep test was negative and they were sending her to the ER at LeBonheur. Well, I immediately went into panic mode. I have never not been there when Nola had to go for something like this and I was all the way in Moscow where I teach. I ran out of school like a crazy woman and anyone who saw me with tears streaming down my face probably thought I was exactly that. I made it to the ER in record time to find sweet Nola in the pale orange gown with the IV line already in. When she was little she had the yellow hospital gowns, but now that she is a big girl she has moved to the orange gown- not that this is something we look forward to Nola wearing! She was in her Daddy's arms and her little face was flushed from fever.

Before I arrived, they had tried to give her Motrin to bring the fever down, but she got upset and unfortunately Daddy was the victim with the throw up. The ER doctor was great! She was the same one Nola had last time we visited the ER...which was only 2 months ago...we are frequent fliers. They did some tests and everything came back normal. We were discharged that afternoon and she ate spaghetti that night!
