The Sunshine Returns!

What a wonderful thing it is to have caring family and friends!! So many have called or e-mailed asking how Cassia is doing and we've been humbled and blessed to be in their prayers!

So, what's the diagnosis? E. coli. Oh joy! Most likely, this is a result of not washing her hands immediately after dealing with the cow or the chickens. Hard lesson learned.

Cassia is doing MUCH better, praise the Lord!!!! She didn't sleep much for 2 nights, but she was blessed with a full night's sleep last night. Today, she's back to her happy self - smiling, talking, even making an e-card for her daddy and I thanking us for helping her through her sickness.

Eric has been great through this whole thing. Cassia absolutely adores her daddy and he's even more of a hero in her eyes now that he's stayed with her at the hospital and showered her with all sorts of love and attention to make things as easy as possible.

As mentioned in a previous post, there was little we could do for her. Cassia seemed to know this and would only want us to hold her hand or pray for her during the times of pain. Praise the Lord, God heard our prayers and He held our hand through this whole ordeal.

We're praying that she will not have a relapse and that the rest of us will not get sick. Most of all, we are praising God for His healing.

Cassia is our sunshine and she's beginning to shine again!

Vicki, this seems so lame to be writing under your comments... yet here I am. I wanted to thank you for letting us know about Cassia, that she's better and what the diagnosis was. We were praying for her. E-coli is no picnic, but we're glad to hear that she's doing better. :-)Hope all's well with you. Have a great weekend!!

Praise the LORD that Cassia is soooo much better!
love you,
"It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him." Lamentations 3:22-25
