my weekend..thus far

i've been sicker than a dog this weekend.
was running a 102.3 degree temp pretty much all night friday, complete will full body ache, chills, the absolute worst sore throat ever, and an earache. i felt worse saturday after i woke up from my awful night of "rest" (haha. there was nothing restful about that night!) i looked at the back of my throat in the bathroom mirrior and saw the telltale white spots on my tonsils. my fever was still hovering a little above 101 so i decided to go to the ER. turns out i have strep and an ear infection! i spent most of saturday in bed trying to get some sleep, but i mostly just laid in bed and thought about my mom and how much i missed her. yesterday marked the 7th anniversary of her death.

a lot has happened in 7 years, and i'm a little bit bitter that she hasn't gotten to share all those things with me and my sisters. i do know that she's in heaven and i know that i will see her again. and that i'll get to spend eternity with her and Jesus! now that is something to look forward too!

my fever is gone now, although my throat still hurts like crazy. i will no longer be contagious in about 3 hours, since i'll have been on my antibiotic for 24 hours by then. i will then be able to smooch my kids, which has been the hardest thing about being sick. i've tried to stay away from them as much as possible, which is SO hard, especially with jackson.

i've been catching up on all of y'alls blogs, and i must say that you ladies are so wonderful and such an inspiration to me. <3 happy sunday!


  1. Oh I hope you feel better.

  2. Oh no! Sorry you have been sick...I can see how maybe being in this awful condition would make you think of your momma :-( I'm happy that she knew the Lord though :-)

    Hope you feel better soon!
