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!
