Friday we started getting an ice storm so I just kept the kids home from school. It was a fun day because Bryan only had to work a couple hours in the morning and then he was home right as the storm was starting. Friday night I started feeling like I was coming down with something because I was just so tired. Then it began…… MASTITIS!!! My fever started right as I was going to bed and it just continued to go up and up. I tried everything to keep it down. By the next morning my fever was up to 103.7 and I was having crazy chills. It was soooooo horrible!! I have only experienced it this bad once before and I never wanted to go through it again. We immediately called my doc and he called in an antibiotic. My fever broke for the first time later on Saturday and then got bad again Saturday night. It is finally under control and it is Monday. I still have mastitis and only time will tell if the antibiotic will work. If it doesn’t my doc said he might need to surgically remove it. Let’s hope that doesn’t have to happen!! Anyway, I am feeling a lot better today and have been out of bed for most of it. Yesterday I spent the entire day in bed and took at least 2 naps. I really have a new appreciation for all the pioneers. When they went through what I have this weekend they would have died. I’m grateful for modern medicine. Even taking a simple little Tylenol is a blessing which they did not have access to.
That is where I have been for awhile. Hopefully I’ll be better able to keep my blog updated.Click to Comment
I just want to take a minute and say how grateful I am for answered prayers. Every prayer we have never goes unanswered. Some take a really long time to realize what the answer is but they always are answered.
A while ago, due to my pride, I lost a couple of really good friends. I said a prayer almost every day that those relationships could be whole again. I am so happy to say that they are and I know they were in answer to what I had been asking.
I can’t believe it’s the last day of 2006. The only reason why I can’t believe it is because it doesn’t really matter to me. Tomorrow will be just like any other day. I have my family, my health, and all that the Lord has blessed me with. Just because it is a New Year doesn’t make it any different. One thing I do know is that I DO want to get my life organized again but that has nothing to do with it being a new year.
I just finished reading two books about the Old Testament women, Sarah & Rebecah. I have learned so much!! Those were both really strong women and when I think about it, I don’t know if I could ever be that strong. I had a talk with Bryan today about all I learned from them and then he reminded me tonight, as he was leaving to magnify his calling, how I am strong just like those women. I laughed and asked him if I could also have 3 servants to help me with my needs. He looked around at my kids and said “You have 4 servants”. Then off he went. He will be back in a couple of hours and I am NOT going to murmur because I believe he is a very great man and just doing what the Lord needs him to do.
Speaking of husbands, have I mentioned how I have married the BEST one ever?? I am soooo critical of him and complain so much but I wouldn’t trade him for anything, not even the Cuttlebug!! He is my helpmate and my friend. He gets up with the baby in the middle of the night to change a diaper just so I can sleep 4 minutes more before I have to get up to nurse. He cleans the kitchen for me just so I can feel like the house is not a total disaster. But the most important thing to me is that he honors his Priesthood and is a man who serves the Lord. I think I have taken it for granted for the past 10 years but now I see how important it really is to me. Maybe there are many things that he still needs to learn but he is willing.
Those are my thoughts. Love you!!Click to Comment
As a “mother” life is very busy. I look at my little family and I am so grateful for them. Growing up I could never imagine even having 2 children. I have never really been one with patience. I prayed for patience and Heavenly Father sent me 5 beautiful children. Can I say more??Click to Comment
