Yikes! (updated)

Update: We had to take Grace to the ER last night, because she wasn't getting better (those smiles only lasted for about 10 minutes and she went downhill again after that). They tested her blood and the WBC's were very high. It still could be from the UTI, but it was awfully high for a UTI, so they thought that it could be her appendix. She had an ultrasound and a CT scan, but they couldn't see her appendix in either. Her pain level has definitely decreased, though, so at this point, we're just waiting to see if she does better today. Unfortunately, she didn't keep the antibiotic down this am. We're sure that we'll get it figured out soon, but would appreciate your prayers in the meantime! Please especially pray that she would be able to keep down liquids and medication. Thanks so much!

It's been quite the eventful couple of weeks!
Jadon started feeling better on Friday and Grace was almost better on Sunday.
But, she had some terrible sores in her mouth and barely ate anything for a number of days.

Then, on Tuesday night she started to have a stomach ache.

On Wednesday, she couldn't keep even a sip of water down.

On Thursday, she was able to eat a couple of otter pops (so it must have been a virus, right?!).

But, this morning she was still crying in excrutiating pain.

So, it was off to the urgent care.

And we found out that she has a raging UTI/possible kidney infection. The doctor said that if we hadn't brought her in, she would have ended up in the hospital.
Poor girl!

They gave her a shot (which I had to apologize for, since I had told her definitely no shots!), took a nap when we got home, and woke up like this!

(Her first smile in days...thank you, thank you, thank you, Jesus, for antibiotics when you really need them!)

 Then she asked for some soup.

And looked like this afterwards (yeah! no tears!).

 Of course, ten minutes later she was back in bed, a little weepy and totally worn out.

But, progress is being made!
Please pray for more progress for my littlest girly. She's more than ready to be well again!
