We are thankful to all of you friends for your prayers and support we won't be were we are. Anna is doing amazing, staying healthy. I don't know if you remember in the beginning of this year she was on treatments 3 days a week and now she is every 3 weeks.

I hope everyone had very good Halloween.
Anna and Enoch stayed home and Louisa took Misha out for Trick or treat. ;-)
After they got back, we just set ate candy and watched movie. We had some kids knocked on our door, but we just ignored. We was thinking to put sign on the door "Welcome to Swine Flu house", but we didn't ;-)

This new Swine flu is not fun at all. Anna is now sick and on Tamiflu. Sometimes she still runs very low fever, but her cough doesn't sound getting better. She will probably miss another week of school. I will be taking her to get labs done this coming Wednesday, to make sure that still staying good.

Enoch still sick and getting better very slow. He finish his Tamiflu meds but still has really bad cough, we hopping on Monday or Tuesday he will be able to go school. Misha and Louisa are doing well, but Louisa never got sick with this and Misha was back to school with in 2 days.

Anna is been doing well, but our family not so well and needs prayers...
God did provide to pay our car payment ;-)
Harlan still looking for job, bills are piling up. Unemployment didn't started yet they refused it, because he was on Make a Wish trip with us. Hopefully it will start up next week.
Enoch is sick with Swine flu, Louisa is in pain, trowing up and in all this we have to hide Anna away from all sickness going on. Doctors are trying decide if they want give Enoch TummyFlu medicine, because there is shortage in supplies.
I think i will keep our other kids home from school next week, so no one will catch anything else.
Thanks for checking and praying;-)
