Prayers needed

Please pray for my little family, we can't seem to catch a break. I was in such high spirits getting excited for Christmas last week when I last posted. Since then, Carson got sick again - another ear infection and had to go back on breathing treatments via nebulizer. He is much better. However after that hurdle, we went to AL to celebrate Christmas with our families and Cory was bitten by a brown recluse spider at his parents' house. He is currently having an allergic reaction which is very dangerous. I had my mom call her family Dr. to see if there was anything we could do for him, unfortunately, he just has to wait for his body to push through and we have to hope that his skin won't be greatly affected where he was bitten. He feels terrible as if he has the flu and has a rash all over like a sunburn. It is really hard for me to watch Carson be sick twice in 3 weeks, and now Cory too. I wish I could be sick for them.



We have returned from the ER. Cory was not getting better (fever, chills, all over body rash and pain) so I called and asked what to do. They actually suggested we bring him in to get him started on antibiotics to prevent infection. Because of where the bite is located, there can be severe complications and life altering effects. They suggested we see a neurologist within 48 hours and to continue to monitor the bite, if we see signs of necrosis (black and blue spots, or blistering) we are to seek immediate attention. Please pray that he will be ok, this is very serious and we are both very scared.
