Time for a big update..

You all remember me talking about how DH's company might not make it though this hard economic times???
We found out last night that the company is going to close. they are going to do it over the next 4 to 6 weeks. They are laying off 1/2 the people there after next week.. DH is in that group of lay offs.. So as of Feb 28 he will no longer have a job and we will no longer have insurances.
Please Pray that we are able to find some sort of insurances at least for the kids quickly.. and that DH's finds another job soon.

It is sort of a scary time.. But we know that God has a plan for us though this even if at the moment we don't know what it is..

Update on my sick kids.
I'm not sure what I posted last about Sweet Pea.. Tuesday she had an appt and got her blood work results.. and it is for sure Mono and on Tuesday her spleen was a little swollen.. She was going to school 1/2 days not full days because of how tired she was getting..
Well her sleepiness seemed t have got worse and they now have her off school altogether.. which after being seen by the doctor today I think is a good thing.. Her spleen has gotten alot bigger since Tuesday and they don't really want her doing much of anything at all. They told us that we even need to be careful driving when she is with us because of hitting bumps in the roads, might rupture her spleen. ~sigh~
So pray for Healing for Sweet Pea.

Had Little Man back at the doctors today also. On Wed night early Thurs. morning he woke up with a fever again. Had it all day yesterday and when he woke up with it again this morning I figured might as well use are insurance while we still have it.. so took him in to see the doctor.. they did another flu test on him(last one was 1/30/09) this time it came back positive.. So my Little man now has the flu. So keep him in your prayers also..

So there is my update... Looking like my weekend recap might be me staying home with the sick kids yet again.. :-(

Oh what a terrible week :(

I pray your husband finds work soon--his company should offer COBRA for a little while for insurance. We did this and then transitioned to independent health insurance. Email me if you want info on health savings accounts/private insurance. We've been on this for over 4 years now. For the kids only, you might see if the state has something. It was designed for times like this and you paid into it for years!

Mono is no fun. I hope Sweet Pea is better soon.

And you--I hope you find time to relax and maybe enjoying a good book or a nice spot of tea. You need it!

I hope he is able to find something quickly. Our state has a health insurance program for the kids called Hawk-I. it is for kids whose parents can't afford health insurance, their employers do not offer a family policy etc. Go to the Department of Human Services and ask if they have a comparable program. Your kids will need it.

Wow, I'm so sorry... but I know too that God always takes care of us. When matt got laid off (when I was pg with emelia) we trusted God and did our best not to worry. He ended up with an even better job so it all worked out. I pray and believe that your hub finds a better job!

ps I was hoping to see a pic of the new hair!

Oh no! I can't believe everything you are going through. I will keep you and your family in my prayers for sure and pray that your husband is able to find a job quickly.
