Merry Christmas!

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." Luke 2 11:14


Well, I’m alive, but barely.

Doug got the flu last Friday. Jacob ensued about 7:30 on Sunday evening, and I was up most of the night with him, after being exhausted from taking care of Doug and Jacob while Doug was sick.

Oh, but my darling husband is having to reimburse that account 100-fold. My horror started Tuesday morning. Didn’t feel so good. Didn’t want anything to eat. By noon, I knew “it” was coming. My indescribable experience started about 1:00 on Thursday, and I called Doug at work so he could come home. I don’t remember anything but agony for the next, oh, 18 hours. At one point, I vaguely remember propping myself up on my walker, while on the throne, holding a bowl…it was pretty horrifying.

At one point, Doug said I was in there for about 2 hours. I must have been in and out of consciousness….or at least reality!!

Anywho…that’s one way to lose 6.5 pounds in 2 days!

We were supposed to go to Doug’s parents today for Christmas…not happening. I had to sit down on the steps on the way down this afternoon. I’m trying to get up a little more, because I’ll never get stronger if I don’t start moving around a bit and trying to eat.
SO….please pray for recovery at this point…more later.
