Needing More Prayer

We've been fighting a series of colds here on and off again for well over a month. Now I've been laid low with some sort of throat infection. The doctor did a strep test this morning and sent me home to load up on ibuprofen for the fever and to gargle my day away with saltwater to help ease the pain.

I'm praising God that my parents came in this week for Christmas. I feel badly that they're having to play nursemaid, but I couldn't have survived today without them. The kids have had a blast with them today...finishing up the tree, playing rummy, and even doing a reading lesson together. Grandma and Granddaddy make the best substitute teachers with their wonderful history lessons and family stories. My Mother even sews and does crafts with the kids. I was sad that I couldn't be downstairs joining in on all the fun, but at least I could listen in on the memories being made while I was quarantined up here in the bedroom. (I've cordonned myself off from the kids as much as possible today because I don't want them to get this nasty stuff for Christmas!)

In the meantime, I do appreciate your prayers for quick healing and for protection from this stuff for the rest of the family.

    Merry Christmas!
