As I was told by the wisest lady I know, "Mama's don't get to be sick." The other day, I was telling Adam how hard it must be when mothers get sick because you still have to nurse the baby and take care of everything else too. Well, my time came sooner than I expected. I woke up in the middle of the night yesterday feeling very flu-like. I knew I hadn't been out of my house very much for the last 3 weeks. So there wasn't much chance that I had caught the flu from someone else. I got both types of flu shots while I was pregnant too. So, I spent the morning trying to take care of Sara Beth while my fever went up and my skin crawled. After a few hours, I knew I had to put my pride aside and call in some help. My sweet in-laws spent the rest of the day seeing to Sara Beth while I rested. Bless their hearts! Turns out, I have a case of mastisis which requires a round of antibiotics to rememdy. The medicine must be doing it's job because I'm feeling much better today! No fever, no aching, no headache or skin crawling. I'm able to take care of my baby girl again! So, even though "Mama's don't get to be sick." Sometimes they do, and when they do, they are super grateful for any help they can get.
We've been married for 14 years and have 2 little blessings, Sara Beth and John David. We strive to be the parents that God wants us to be for them. Before having kids, we traveled the world and had exciting adventures together. Now, in this season of our lives, we are still having adventures. They may look a little different, but these adventures are the ones that really matter.
