My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

Friday, February 15, 2008


Since I posted this morning, Zion has had diarrhea (I looked up how to spell it!) four more times. I guess I was overly optimistic that it was a one day thing. After the third time I finally talked him into wearing a diaper again. He really prefers underwear, and sobbed and cried when I made him wear a diaper, but when he went again just 10 minutes later, I was really glad I had talked him into it! He seems to feel fine. He runs and plays most of the time, and has no fever. I don't know what is wrong with him, but I sure hope it stops. I don't want to take him to FL if he is sick.
Anybody got any ideas? (that means you Carrie, since you are the only one who reads my blog on a regular basis!)

Hey I take offense to that, I read your blog on a regular basis....Anyway...only bland foods for a start, and if he doesn't want to eat you don't have to push it. He is old enough to have 1 teaspoon imodium or other over the counter diahreah medicine(btw the children's strength imodium is the same strength as the adult bottle) but can only have it 3 times in one day. Of course keep him hydrated with anything that doesn't have caffine. Pedialyte or the like works best and doesn't have as much sugar as gatorade/powerade or sprite. He can still drink milk, but this may irritate his tummy so you might want to hold off on that for a couple of days. We have had to stomach virus (naseua, vomiting, and diahreah)about 6-7 times since Christmas, not fun at all. Since I ended up in labor and delivery triage on fluids with one of those wonderful bugs, I have tried to steer clear of sickly children...not drinking/eating after them, bleaching the entire house on a regular basis, not letting kids at school get close enough to breath on me, etc.
I know it is not fun... I hope Zion feels much better soon and that Cannan does not get it or you and Andy for that matter as well. Good luck, I hope this helps.
