The House of Sickness.

"For I will restore health to you and heal all of your wounds..."
Jeremiah 30:17


The kids went to the Dr. and all is fine. Well, it's not actually fine, but they are healthy. They are both miserable. They both have alot of congestion and red throats but it's all viral. That always frustrates me. I'm so thankful that they're healthy and that their bodies can fight off common colds. I know there are many children whose bodies are not strong enough to do so. However, I wish there was a magic cure for viral infections to make them feel better rather than letting this horrible thing rage through their bodies.

Fevers.

Watery, itchy eyes.

Sore throats.

Achy Bodies.

Fussiness.

Irritability.

Painful ears.

Drainage. Headaches.

Did I mention fevers?

How do I know that they have all of these symptoms? Because I was up all night last night feeling the same way. I took 3 baths and still felt freezing. My back and body aches and my ears and throat feel on fire. My chest is burning and I am exhausted. And I know that it is viral. And it will pass. However, I also know that my body is doing everything to protect Emery right now. And I want it to. But I want to feel better too. So I can nurture and take care of a couple sick redheads.

Would you pray for us today? The Lord is a healing God. He cares about the largest and the smallest iniquities in our bodies. He is a caring God. I trust that we will all be back to complete health very soon. And I covet your prayers for my children and I.

I'll update soon.

I am praying, Ramee, right now. I had that last week, and it was awful - not pregnant. Cannot even imagine how you feel today. You and your children still look beautiful!
