As I write this, Claire is in the ER waiting to be admitted into the hospital. The doctor is pretty sure that she has meningitis and possibly pneumonia. All beds are full, so we are waiting it out in the ER until a bed opens up for her. She needs several tests, including a spinal tap and then we are looking at least the next 48 hours in the hospital depending on how it all goes. At one point today, the doctor said to me, "They don't all survive this". Those have been the hardest words for me to hear and they keep repeating in my head. I am so thankful that I have a God who is in control of all circumstances and who is bigger than all of my needs. I don't know when I'll be back at the computer, but I'll keep you all posted.
