Never so Glad to see Obnoxious!!!

Well with a title like that you must figure that the boy is better today ~~ YAY!! He is feeling better. He woke up with a temp of 100.3, but given the last four days (before yesterday) of over 103 degrees temp, we will take it as a sign he is getting better.

And another sign, yes he is being a little obnoxious this morning ~~ PRAISE THE LORD!!!!! When I say obnoxious, it is a mild obnoxious, but I'll take what I can get at this point =)

For days now he has wanted sour patch gummies, ya know those things that make you pucker at their name, little lone at the smell, well he has voiced his desire for such gummies to others besides us and each time I give him a sympathetic "NO". He's just been too sick. I didn't want that to come back up and bite him, ya know?!!

Well today as I was making my mental grocery list for the local market, he added sour patch gummies I was so happy, oh yeah and chicken strips and it's just 10:15 in the morning, yep sure sign he is feeling better.

He wanted me to pass along as well, that he was able to sit outside in the shade while I watered the garden this morning. He wanted me to tell you he had to sit in the shade because he is a vampire ~~ really it's because of the medicine he's on, no sun for 10 days ~~ vampire, too funny son!! =)

Well, I have 4th of July pics and more Bible study notes to share and other things to pass along, but for now I wanted to get this update on because ya'll have been so faithful to pray for Dak during this illness. Prayerfully he is on the road to recovery and will feel better as the week goes on. He does not get to go to CC camp this week and he is bummed, but hopefully he'll be well enough for the one later in the month.

Thank you again for all your prayers, they have meant more than I can express with mere words. Tick borne illness is nasty stuff, so please, if you have a tick take care of it right away and if you start showing symptoms of sickness please go to your doc right away and get on medicine necessary to get you through it as quickly as possible. I'm so glad we were pro-active. This can be very serious. If you want more information please go the CDC's website, I think its

Have a Blessed Monday,


  1. YAY!!! Praise God! SOOO glad he is better!

  2. You may have to withstand some more obnoxious .... cause you probably need to make sure he stays down for a little while longer until he's 100%... dont want any rehashing of fevers that high!!!

    Tell him to stay in the shade & relax & sour patch kids will be his!

  3. Praise the Lord I am so glad he is feeling better.

  4. Amen to the power of prayer! Thanks God for bringing on the healing powers for Dak and strength for his family in dealing with all the unknowns.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
