I can't sleep, so I'm going to blog!

It's never good when your doorbell rings over and over at 2am! That's what happened last night. Ryan's not home, so this freaked me out just a bit. I found Amy's neighbor standing on my porch. Amy was in an ambulance on the way to the hospital and I needed to take care of her kids. Amy had tried to call me, but all my phones were downstairs (Does anyone else have this problem? I never have a phone where I need it! Maybe I need to get a corded phone for my bedroom.) Amy was having severe abdominal pains and she thought she was going to pass out. It's been about five hours now and Amy is currently still at the hospital and is waiting for her cat-scan. They're thinking that her gall bladder might have to be removed.

Right now my mind is full of trying to figure out the plan. Get Emma to school because she has a field trip today. But I've gotta get clothes from her house first because I only have summer clothes for her here. Pack lunches for Abby and Nate and drop them off at daycare. Find someone to watch Christian (who wet the bed in the middle of the night for only the second time ever and now he's going to be grouchy because he didn't get enough sleep). Take McKenna and head to the hospital to be with Amy who's been by herself all night. Hmmm...somehow I've gotta get a shower too. I guess it's time to stop blogging and get moving.

Please pray for Amy. This was scary for her. She needs healing and she really can't afford to be missing work, so that's another huge concern for her. Thankfully we serve an awesome God who cares about the little details in life and this is just another opportunity for Him to show us how faithful and good he is! Oh I'm so thankful for friends who will pray and for a God who hears!

Just a note: Please don't call Amy's cell phone to try to talk to her. She has it on so I can get in touch with her, but she really can't be taking calls right now! Don't worry!!! I'll keep everyone updated!!

Thanks for keeping us updated Judy, and of course you can count on us here at VFCC to keep here in prayer.
You are absolutely right, God will take care of all the little things, and he will take of the big ones too! If you need anything that I can do from here let me know and I will do my best to help.

You should tell Amy...just because you woke her up at 5 am so you can drive yourself to the ER...doesn't mean she has to return the favor! (haha). Praying for all of you.
