Difficult Day...

After four good days, Ellie woke up today feeling sick. She threw up first thing this morning and had leg pain and back pain. I was so surprised because of how good she has been feeling. There are several theories as to why she's feeling this way, but the truth is - we just don't know. One possibility is that she is feeling effects of the antiviral medication she's on for the chickenpox, another is that she feels this way because of the chickenpox (although this theory causes me to question whether that means that she's about to get a whole new bunch of them or would that mean some kind of complication of the chickenpox ???) then there's the possibility that she's just sick with something else...and so goes the guessing game. At least by the end of the day she was feeling some better, and she didn't throw up anymore during the day. She didn't eat, unfortunately - today she could only tolerate liquids. I will let you know what tomorrow brings. Thanks for praying!

Dear Sarah and John,
You and Ellie continue being in our prayers. We have such fond memories of meeting you and your family in Panama in the late 80's.
The blogs have been so good to keep informed about Ellie and all of you.
Interesting to hear that Vickie has had her baby too. Had thought we might send in a name suggestion but never got it done.
We know it is hard on Chad to be so far away at this time but the work he is doing is very exciting.
Our love and prayers,
Dan & Marlys Orluck

Thank you all! We appreciate it so much.

Dan and Marlys - thanks! It's wonderful to hear from you. Thanks so much for the card that you sent. We have been planning to send thank-you's but coming to the hospital unexpectedly threw a kink in our plans... Love you guys.
