a favor...UPDATED

UPDATE: samantha's ankle is feeling much better. after i wrapped it in an ace bandage last night she attemted to walk on it a little bit, and then when her auntie rah got home she pretty much ran to the door to tell auntie about her injury. she told me to write to everyone "thank you so much for praying. my ankle feels better." so thanks!


ORIGINAL POST: today was a beautiful day here in minnesota (i'm at my parent's house for a visit), so this afternoon we went outside for a while. when we were done samantha started running to go inside. then she lost her shoe and was hopping around on one foot. we got her shoe back on and she said her ankle hurt. when she started walking again she limped for a couple steps then started sobbing. she bawled as i carried her all the way back to the house. so she either twisted it or rolled it or something. i don't know. apparently it hurt a LOT because she asked me to please call the doctor! i propped her ankle up and put ice on it, and as she was crying the questions came "mom, will i be able to walk again?" and "what if i can't play games at awana tomorrow?"

then after a few minutes she said with the saddest look and with tears rolling down her face, "mom, can you put it on your blog so that people will start praying for me?"


so, if you would, please say a little prayer for samantha's ankle to feel better!


in other news, ryan started throwing up on sunday, and he didn't sleep well that night. we took our 11 hour trip to minnesota yesterday with him throwing up in the van only once! and after a better night of sleep last night he's been much better today! i guess he just needed gramma!

Awww, I hope she feels better soon! Emeric had that happen a few months ago.

How long will you be in town?

I didn't read this until after the update, so I'm glad she's feeling better! How sweet that she wanted you to write it on your blog - the power of a blog!! :) Just teasing - clearly that girl understands the power of prayer already.

When are you coming home, btw?
