Dum Dum Dum
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust!
(Thank you Queen - so appropriate)
Today was looking UP! Andrew had no fever all night and has had no fever thus far today. But UP soon came DOWN. Jacob has looked a bit pale this morning in my estimation, but I'm just an uptight, nervous, worried Mom - what do I know? At this point if someone blinks their eye funny, I start wondering. I kept asking if he was OK and he kept answering yes. Before lunch, he got a blanket to lay on the sofa and watch the current video selection. Hmmmmmm. Now I'm really wondering. I fetched the thermometer and sure enough 100.1. Another five days? Who knows anymore. All my best efforts to protect the others have been useless. Is Michael next (my worst fear)? I pray not.
I am seriously worn out, discouraged, bitter and frustrated. This has been going on for 13 days now. I so long for normal life again. I know sickness is part of life as a "normal" family, but I miss the way things usually are. I really don't feel like I can handle much more. I guess God thinks otherwise. I know He is not sending this to us to be mean and I am not mad at God, by any means. Just tired in so many ways. It leaves me to wonder what am I supposed to learn here? I am trying not to be a hopeless, teary, blubbering mess of a mother, but it is hard to fight.
I would say that I hope Jacob is over this more quickly than Andrew and Nicole, but I am a little lacking in the hope department, especially where this virus is concerned. What a monster of a virus.
PLEASE pray for me and most especially little Michael. I'll pray for you.
