Quick Prayer Request

I don't think I've mentioned it, but Sailer was sick last week with a terrible cough, non-stop runny nose, low-grade fever, and a sore throat. Her pediatrician dismissed it as either allergies (which I'm sure she does have) or viral since she'd just finished a round of antibiotics for her minor ear infection she'd had from teething. And unfortunately, he couldn't really do anything for her on either front. Well, this mommy came down with it on Friday in a big way! I've been fighting the sore throat, the achy body, the horrible non-stop drip of my nose, and with that, no sleep because I can't breathe at night. It seems to just be getting worse b/c now it's down in my lungs and I have this horrific smoker's hack! Last night I finally broke down in tears b/c I can't sleep (and really need to be saving up some ZZZ time) and have that same problem as the day from hell every time I cough b/c my whole body convulses. I feel like a complete geriatric! I finally just gave up on trying to lay down, and sat on the potty and coughed all night. And to make matters worse, Mark and Sailer's Papa have now come down with it. I just left a message for my doctor b/c I don't know whether it's safer for Mr. Lincoln to just stay camped out where he is since I'm so sick, or if b/c we're so inextricably linked, it could be putting him in danger! And I'm also frightened they're not going to let Mark in the delivery room/ or around Lincoln when he gets here if he keeps on the path that I took with this thing. SOOOOO, if you get a chance today, please say a little prayer for health for my whole family. No one likes to be sick, but this seems to be the worst possible timing ever! )= Thanks and love y'all!!

Honey, put some Vick's VaporRub on the bottom of your feet. Put some warm socks on and GET INTO THE BED! I swear that this works! Ditto for your hubby and Sailer. You *are* going to feel so much better tomorrow. I was sick for nearly 2 weeks 4 years ago. I prayed to God to deliver me. One of my dearest friends told me to try the Vick's on my feet. The next day, I was at the Macaroni Grill having my first true meal in about 10 days.

You do not want this to turn into bronchitis. I had that twice this year; if you weren't pregnant, I would tell you to take some of this "Liquid Gold" cough syrup. It's prescription only, but oh does it work!

Get the Vick's out!

Thanks for the sweet words of encouragement that you left on my blog. I just purchased my first home; I have my career; I feel as if this is "the year" that I will meet Him.

RE: hats, you have got to wear one this Mother's Day. You live in the South, and oh, how I miss living there/wearing pretty hats. People cannot dress in Phoenix! I purchased the hat from Dillards.

Love ya!
