Still here having fun! :)

Thanks so much for praying for us, Isabella's pink eye is gone -- without any medicine. Which is a praise!!! I called my dr and he wouldn't call in any antibiotic. I was so frustrated. My kids rarely get sick at all, so its not like I've asked him to do this before, but the receptionist said after talking to him "The dr said he would have to see her to know that its actually pink eye" I told her, "Its definitely pink eye, my nephew had it, my niece had it, ... oh yeah and I'm like every other mother who knows what pink eye looks like" (Ok, so I didn't say that last part) She said "he said your only other option is to go to Urgent Care." I was so irritated that I'm tempted to find a new dr. I mean seriously, its pink eye, its not like I'm asking for some crazy drug or anything. I know lots of drs don't like to do that but still frustrating. So I just really prayed about it. By the next morning Isabella's eye looked better and so far Amelia, Garrett as well as the adults have not caught it. I'm really praising Him for that because I know this can be so contagious!

I still have a sore throat, but thankfully during the day I feel pretty good. We had a fun day yesterday at Harbour Town. We had gone there to go to the "Salty Dog Cafe" and did some shopping, then we came back and went to the beach in the evening. Which is nice rather than being so hot in the middle of the day. We did get to end the day with another....accident? drama? bad luck? :) My brother and Tyler were standing in the surf fishing and Mike was probably waist deep, he caught a fish, came out of the water kind of limping. So Meredith went down there and came back up to get a towel, saying Mike had cut himself. He actually didn't cut himself though, he was stung by a stingray. He was Ok for about 15 minutes and then it really started hurting, Dad ran to get the truck because Mike started hurting so bad he couldn't walk the couple blocks home. BUT its great having internet while you're on vacation, they got back to the room looked up stingray stings and found out that he had to soak it in the hottest water he could stand for an hour and that would bring the venom out. We all were saying "Praise the Lord it wasn't Tyler." It could have been worse. Today Mike seems to be fine. As long as we lived on the beach growing up and as much as Mike lived in the water surfing, he had never been stung by a stingray. I'm sure he feels proud. :) This is just more reason why I am NOT an ocean girl, give me the sand, give me the sun, give me the sound of the waves and the seashells, but I'll just swim in the pool where I can see my toes. :) Hopefully I got some cute pics last night and I will upload them when we get home!!

I agree with you! I'll take the clear water where I can see my toes, too! Poor Mike! Wow, that's creepy! Interesting find on soaking in the hot water. I love the internet. We can all become doctors with one click of the button. :o)
I'm glad that you all are feeling better. I prayed for Isabella and the pink eye and guess what...I woke up the next morning with pink eye! That's ok, I didn't mind taking it for her. :o)

I am like you, I love watching the ocean and walking in the sand, even walking in the water up to my knees. But I want a clear pool to put this whole body in. I want to see whats swimming around me, while I am swimming around. I hope Mike's leg is feeling better. Good to know he isn't allergic to a stingray sting.
