Sorry to Leave Y'all Hanging

Thank you all so very much for your prayers, wonderful words, and thoughts for our family.  Every single one of them is appreciated and felt! 

Right now there really is no change in Matt's condition.  The most important thing is to get the ammonia out of his system which could take days or weeks.  After that is cleared out then they will begin the process of taking him off the ventilator and out of the coma.  Matt is semi-responsive, not sure anyone was expecting him to open his eyes or shake his head, but it was nice for Eric's family to see that.  However, the doctors need him more relaxed and sleepy to completely do everything they need to.  So he is fast asleep now, and hopefully talking to Jesus about some things.

Yesterday Eric decided to just go back to Ohio for a couple of days to be with his family.  Which I had absolutely no problem with, until about an hour after he left...then the stomach flu hit us!  First it hit Lucy, then a little time later me.  I think being sick as an adult is worse then when you were a kid!  So I thought I was being smart and called a friend to come get Molly so she wouldn't get sick.  Our wonderful surrogate grandma Chris came right over and took Molly.  I told Molls she was going to have a sleep over at Brian and Chris's house, and she was thrilled, and clueless that Mommy kept running back and forth to the bathroom.

Then this morning Chris called me to say that Molly got hit with the bug in the middle of the night.  I felt awful!  But Chris reassured me that Molly did great and it was totally fine.  So Molly got dropped back off this morning.  The good thing about this bug is it seems short lived.  I am over it, Molly is over it, and I think Lucy is for the most part.  Lucy has a cold and is getting another tooth, so I am guessing that is attributing to her many diaper changes, too.

So I am glad Eric went to be with his family and I pray he avoids this bug.  Especially since he is preaching on Sunday.  So I have been trying to Lysol and Clorox everything before he gets back here tomorrow.

Again, thank you all so much for the prayers and concerns, it means the world to us!  I will keep you updated when we know more, right now prayers for Matt to pull through and totally turn his life over to Christ would be awesome.
