can you hear me now?
don't know how many ppl check in on a regular basis, but i am simply exhausted. yesterday was a marathon - max at the doctor's, molly at the doctor's (osgood schlatter's disease, in a knee imobilizer for 10 days, recheck in 10 to determine if she *gave it enough rest* - we are supposed to go to NYC next tuesday, please say extra prayer we can. it is her dream...), home for dinner, taught ccd, took max to e.r. because he couldn't breathe properly. what an experience. he's okay, they sent him home and continues with his regimen the doc prescribed yesterday.
asthma is a scary thing.
so is the emergency room. will definitely blog on that as i took notes while i was there. we got home around 1:00 a.m. (as an aside, the last time i was up that late, if my memory serves, there was some sort of alcohol involved and a man named dave. but i can't be sure. )
am also wondering if i pray for my family on a daily basis, and specifically my children's health - what is the general concensus? should i stop praying so directly? i don't want to say my faith is waivering; however, it is quite discouraging when we review simply the last month alone what my prayers have garnered. more on that later. i am wondering if He is hearing, or should i be thinking differently about all the ailments my children have had over the last say, six weeks?
immaculate conception of Mary
on an up note - read at Mass tonight. had an exquisite cantor sing all the special Marian hymns and a thought occurred to this former Protestant who has struggled so much with Mary up until about a month ago -- the Marian hymns have always been my favorites. always. it was there all along, i just didn't recognize it.
the cantor sang Ave Maria like i have never heard before. truly the biggest lift i had all day.
~peace to all~
