Last week was pretty rough. Cora got quite sick on Monday with a high fever and saying her tummy hurt. She spent the day sleeping on the couch–something she’s NEVER done in all her 4 years of life! This meant she got more attention and was needing to be cuddled, hugged and held more. I wasn’t sure how it was all going to go because Ben has been struggling so much already with not having as much attention as he’s used to. However, praise the Lord, he did just fine, and Rebekah was having a good day too.
Then, on Thursday, Ben woke up from his nap with a fever and obviously not feeling well. He later threw up on David and one of our living room chairs. He was sick all day Friday and was extra clingy, whiny, etc. Rebekah was also having a bad day on Friday, and so it was really hard to balance taking care of both.
To top it all off, David woke up Friday morning saying he felt like a truck had hit him. He, too, got the bug, and so spent all day Friday on the couch. Needless to say, I was at my wits’ end on Friday. I did not handle things well, but I’m so thankful for God’s grace and my family’s forgiveness. I’m glad last week is over (and glad to be able to get back to blogging) and am glad this week is going much better!
