Our crazy H’s in the ER

If you didn’t hear, we had a crazy night last night. Yesterday Havyn was sick all day. She had thrown up earlier that morning and then to the potty all day. About 3:00 she had a fever. So off to ER we go. ( Thankful for friends and family taking care of the other kids). Steve stayed back to take Henry and Amelia to the ball fields for practice, while I headed to the zoo, otherwise last night known as the ER at Norton Childrens. I felt so bad for all those people waiting to be seen.
While we were waiting on the doctor, Steve called and said, “I am about to make your night even worse. I am headed to you right now with Henry, he just got hit in the mouth with a baseball and knocked his tooth lose!!!” Excuse me, “WHAT????”

So the two H’s, Henry and Havyn, in the ER together. To be honest I am still in shock, still processing. I am learning to not speak my fears. I am telling you, just Friday I was having dental work done to my front teeth and telling Dr.Hurm one of my worst fears is for my kids teeth to get knocked out. I don’t know if it is God showing me that I can face my fears or if it is the enemy blowing his tongue at us saying , na na na boo boo, I know what will get you. Either way, our hearts were broken and torn last night. As I stayed with Havyn in one room, Steve hung with Henry in the other. Once Havyn got to sleep, I ran down to see Henry.  Just in time to watch the Dentist cleaning him up and setting his tooth.  God gave us some amazing kids.  They are strong and brave!!  I watched Henry endure a ton of pain last night and he said it didn’t hurt.  Ya’ll God is good!!! We are so blessed!!  The verse that keeps coming to my heart is 1 John 4:4, “Little children, you belong to God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

Henry and Steve went home last night and as far as I know slept pretty good.  They headed to the Dentist this morning for an X-Ray and exam.  Good news is his bone didn’t look like there was any trauma to it.  Praying still that he has no real issues with this in the future.  Please pray specifically that… Henry’s body doesn’t reject his tooth and therefore loose it or be discolored, that he doesn’t have to have a root canal and that it heals correctly.

Havyn has done well.  She had a 100.5 temp when I called the doctor yesterday and they said bring her in.  She was just puny but acting fine.  Her blood counts were all great last night.  This morning, not so much.  Not too concerned, they think it is from the virus that she is fighting and possibly from all the fluids she is getting.  They gave her another round of antibiotics as a precautionary measure.  Right after that she got really nauseous and tired.  She demanded 🙂 a throw up bag and then guessed what color it would be.  She guessed purple, it was green. 🙂  Thankfully it wasn’t put to use!!  The nurse, Sable (super sweet), got her zofran and all is well.  I have asked for another CBC to be done before we head home so I am not wondering if her counts have gotten better or worse.  We should be going home sometime today.  Apparently, we are still waiting on more doctors to look at her.

Thankful for the slew of people that helped Henry last night at the ball fields. Those who have helped juggle Amelia and Arlie.  Mom, O’Neals, Teresa for taking Amelia to dance today.  Weekday childcare- EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. I am signed up to volunteer, a kid is sick and I can’t!  I am SO SORRY!  For The Milsteads for bringing dinner tonight!  We couldn’t make it without your prayers and support!!!  Thanks for loving on us!!
