Pobrecita/Poor Thing!

Caroline has had diarrhea for 11 days now!  I didn't know that babies could have diarrhea that long and still be functioning well, but she is a trooper!  Based on exam results, the doctor said she has a bacterial infection so she's taking antibiotics.  She hasn't finished the course of the antibiotics yet and we are hoping the medicine will help her get back on track.

Who knows where she got it from...we've been super protective in telling people to not touch her hands because they go right in her mouth and keeping her toys clean, avoiding obviously dirty places, but it looks like the germs snuck in somehow.

In spite of it all she's doing really well.  The doctor said with her lab results any other kid would have a fever and appear tired and weak yet she's been fever free and still enjoys jumping up and down in her toy jumperoo.  She's had about 5 bottles of pedialyte and is staying very hydrated. 

A needed rest

Camp season was super busy for us and it ended late January.  February has been a much slower month as far as ministry goes and it's like that on purpose so as to recharge our batteries for the ministry year which basically picks us again in March.

Throughout the month of February the youth that we work with keep meeting in their churches and we support them and attend their Bible Clubs but it has been low key.  We took a week of vacation and that's when my parents came to visit us.  They had a  great time here and especially enjoyed interacting with Caroline!

Here are some pictures from the time my parents were here:
