How blessed I am in my friends. I am sorry I haven’t kept you up to date, it has been a rough few days. Bridget had a shot of a very strong antibiotic in the doctor’s office in an effort to quickly reduce the infections. She had bad bronchilitis and a raging ear infection. She was in so much pain. Sean was just starting the coughing and breathing problems. I came home from the doctor with many prescriptions and a strict regime of dosing as well as clearing their airways with a fairly strong decongestant and saline. We were able, by following this regime and keeping in very close touch with the doctor, to keep everyone out of the hospital. I was fortunate that my parents were staying here and were able to really be helpful. The doctor says we must have gotten the shot into Bridget at just the right time because she was sure she was going to admit the babies into the hospital the next day.
I know better.
I know it was a miraculous recovery due to the prayers, literally hundreds of prayers offered by all of you. I was so touched by all of the comments on the blog and the emails (over 500) I received. I cried through many of them.
So Dave and I are very, very tired but happy. Our babies are recovering. They are breathing peacefully without struggling and even though the cough persists it is not nearly as frightening as it was earlier this week.
I am not sure when I’ll be posting again, but know I am praying for all of you and your intentions. Thank you so much dear prayer warriors. You helped immeasurably!
