Thank you to everyone that has sent your thoughts and prayers. We really appreciate them. Especially Claire. Here are just a few of the stories that we have heard of so far:

-A priesthood blessing from Daddy and Heavenly Father.
-Grampa Bill in the car ready to come up within about two minutes of the conversation. Had to convince him there was nothing he could do to help.
-Grampa Bill instead called all Mathews kids to ask them to fast and pray.
-Grammie Krista sent balloons---right after all the initial pokes and pods, she saw a nurse walk in with balloons. She was still so sick and lethargic, but she pepped up for a second: "Balloons!" and reached her hand out for them. She would only watch "MeNo" (Nemo) and hold her balloons all day yesterday.
-Grammie Krista and Grumpy Matt offered to come out.
-Grammie Krista and Grumpy Matt called the Sorensen family to ask for fasting and prayers. We heard word that we are even receiving prayers from a family in a worse situation than we've ever thought possible. Thanks for your blessings, Jeff and family.
-Lauren and David are praying
-Becky and Adam are praying
-Luke and Amy are praying (even after we almost infected their precious kids)
-Grandma Rosi and Grampa Bill are fasting and praying
-Grammie Krista and Grumpy Matt are fasting and praying
-Crystal Burke is praying
-GGrandma Claudia and GGrampa Dennis are praying
-Ben and Tamme are praying
-Camilla and Anthony are bringing dinner (even after their son shared cookies---well, he stole them right out of her hand, te he---with Claire on Saturday!)
-Greg offered to come and help out.

Oh my dear friend. I am so sorry for sweet little Claire and for you and Nick. My prayers are definitely with you all. I hope the doctors find out what to do to help your sweet little munchkin.
As for turning up the music, I get frustrated with my kids when I can't get them to communicate what is wrong with them. You're a good mommy. Hang in there.
