And So It Goes

Isnt' that a Billy Joel song? "And so it goes...and so it goes...and You're the only one who knows..."


Anyway. Jacob threw up all night Tuesday night...It is SO hard to recover when you miss a night's sleep! I mean, I slept some, but when your kid is sick, you don't really sleep...it's like one ear is open waiting to hear the beginning of the ralphing.


I am standing on the Word that no weapon formed against me shall stand, and that Doug and I will NOT get this. AND we haven't, so we won't. We were both a bit nauseous, and that was it for us.


You know, it's SO easy to get discouraged when you have a chronic illness. And for a long time my attitude was pretty much in the crapper. I have felt SO bad for SO long, I almost forgot what my "normal" was...But now, if it wasn't for my back...which is getting better...well, when THAT'S 100%, I will be close to MY 100%. And that hasn't happened in YEARS. Since before Jacob, and he's almost 4. It's about time!! Hallelujah!!

I am truly thankful for so many friends who lift me up in prayer. Thanks again!

The key is just hangin' on. It's like you're in this huge tug of war, and you don't have to hang on FOREVER, just a second longer than your opponent. So when chronic illness flairs into an acute attack, you have to just hang on...one second longer than it does.
