More sickies

Well, we know it's not something Doug ate.

Jacob started throwing up at about 7:30 PM and kept it up til about 3 AM. He seems to be just fine now, for which I am very thankful....he's acting pretty much like himself, and says he's glad his tummy doesn't hurt anymore. : ) Me, too, bud. At nearly 3 1/2, this was his FIRST stomach flu. He's never really thrown up before (other than spitting up as a baby), so he was terrified. Mommy wasn't so good either.

Every time something like this happens, where you see your child hurting in some way, I am brought to a newer, better understanding of God's love for us, His children. Seeing Jacob like that absolutely broke. my. heart. And my love for him isn't pure and perfect like our heavenly Father's love for us...really makes you stop and think....

So, I am asking that if you read this, and if you pray, PLEASE send up a prayer on my behalf. Because of the myasthenia, ANY illness can be very serious, and lead to complications...I'm already a bit weakened from being up all night with Jacob...I certainly don't want to end up in the hospital for Christmas.

Doug is feeling mostly back to himself...ate his first real meal last night...I'm just super exhausted from taking care of both Doug and Jacob...

So thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers...I believe God hears them and will answer them...

God Bless You!!

Oh man!! Praying for you big time. Those are brutal. Pop in some movies and just snuggle on the couch and call it a quiet day. Tell Jacob that the quiet time will help fix his tummy. Whatever works to keep him low key.
