Two steps forward 1 step back

Tuesday Eli came down with a 102 fever, Paula felt cruddy so we went to see Dr Maly our chiropractor Wednesday morning and Eli felt better the rest of the day, but we also went back to Kearney on Wednesday because of pain and general feeling of something wrong.  Skin is not looking too good right around the inside of the elbow, and the driving has been pretty hard on Paula so reluctantly we are switching Dr's to Lincoln.  Dr. Buchman, you will never realize how greatful we are to you!  Thursday morning Eli threw up and spent most of the day on the couch, Isaac also came down with a fever and by last night it was above 104.  Thankfully we had some help as Donna and Molly were here to lend a hand (4 extra actually!)  He had a high fever all day, finally fell asleep after another adjustment and has woken up and fever down to 100.7.  Oh, and by the way Malachi fell on the corner of our brick fireplace and had a goose egg an inch above his eye on Wednesday, had a bloody nose in bed last night and went to the school nurse today!  God, you do have a funny sense of humor some times.  Please give me wisdom, strength and peace.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.  If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.  But when he asks, he mush believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  James 1:1-6
