So, it's not's 5th disease. They went and got a second opinion. The first one was a nurse practitioner who is very pro-immunizations and when she found out that he hadn't had his shots, she immediately jumped to the conclusion that it was measles. 5th disease is still not a great diagnosis with a pregnant momma, but way better. Only about 50% of people exposed will contract 5ths disease. Of those 50%, only about 5% of pregnant women will have complications...generally in the first trimester. She is well past that, so Lord willing, all will be well. Thanks for all of your prayers.

On another note, our friends, the Omans (that just had baby Abigail) need some prayers right now too. Their 3-y-o has double pink eye and their 2-y-o has THE know, the one you get the flu shot for? Tamaflu kind of flu. SO, because Abbie is so tiny, she can't be medicated, so Jessica and Abbie are quarantined from the rest of the family until at least Monday. It's really hard because Austin (2-y-o) is really sick and crying for his mommy, who can't be near him. It's just really stressful for them all.

Well, that's all for now. I'll try to do a more "fun" post later. :)
