... for all your encouragement, friends. I do realize I was a bit cryptic yesterday...I stumbled on that sign, and it just spoke to me. But after a worried, late night text from one of my best friends, I thought I should explain. This sickness we're fighting is lasting forever. Unfortunately only one of us had strep (which can be fixed easily with medicine) and the rest of us have a virus with head and chest congestion, hacking coughs and fever. After two visits to the doctor, we are still having to just let the virus run it's course. Elijah had both the virus and the strep and even after the strep was gone, the virus lingered on. All told he was sick for about 15 days, 12 of those with fever. Kaleb is on his 8th day of fever, Emet is on his 5th. I'm close to being out of the woods, but I still don't feel like doing anything, and my dear husband who has done such a great job of making dinners and getting medicine for us hasn't even started the process yet, although he said this morning that his throat was tight.
So, even though I'm sure there is a light at the end of this tunnel, I just couldn't see it yesterday.
