|I snapped this pic before I picked him up and realized he was actually sick!|
Thankfully, the throwing up stopped, although Reuben was up a couple times. His fever was on and off through the day Sunday, and finally broke about bedtime last night. Sigh. My dad stayed the night last night, just to ensure we were good to go! Family is so good! Eli's mom came by yesterday to visit, just to give me some adult conversation since we were stuck at home. = )
Again, one of those weekends that you don't plan on! I had my ideas and my schedule of how things might play out ... and had to shelve all those. It was a good lesson (as motherhood constantly is) on selflessness, as I was cuddling a feverish boy, nursing a baby, and working to give Jonah projects to keep occupied. There was nothing about fulfilling what I would have liked to do, or get accomplished. I would have loved a sweaty workout - had to go. Maybe some time to get out and run errands all together? nope. It wasn't, and isn't about me. And yet I woke up this morning so grateful for God's faithfulness to us. Everyone is (mostly) healthy now, and help arrived when needed most.
