This week is NOT going quite as I’d envisioned it.
My oldest daughter has had a cold all week, as has Annabelle. Both are managing their snot well though, thank goodness!
Then this morning my oldest-middle daughter woke up puking.
And not sure if it’s just “please-God-don’t-let-me-get-it” pain, but my stomach is rolling a bit this morning too.
I really really hate stomach bugs. A lot. Especially since Annabelle landed in the hospital for 4 days around this time last year with one, and then another 3 days a few months ago.
Praying that she DOES NOT GET THIS, although I fully acknowledge with her weakened immune system, it’d literally be a miracle. But I know this Big Guy named Jesus who is the business of miracles.
Also having to cancel Annabelle’s 3 therapy appointments today too, which super stinks.
Funny. As I woke up this morning, I was praying that God would help me get a handle on everything. Between book release and the kids getting settled in school/homework and softball and Annabelle, Mommy has been going a bit crazy and dropping “balls” left and right.
Not 100% sure how a stomach bug helps all this but it is keeping me home today (I wouldn’t get home until 3 today with therapy… and Lacy would of had Softball at 6) , so maybe this is God’s sense of humor in answering my prayer!
Or he’s saying, “Careful what you wish for….”
But in the end….
Puke happens. It’s part of life. And trusting God to give us strength, even in this yuckiness.
Interesting: Heart Momma friend Amy shared this blog today about preventing stomach bugs. I’m not a grape juice fan, but I might be able to down some…
Not sure giving Annabelle grape juice is a smart idea with her sensitive stomach, but it’s tempting!
Discussion: Have you heard of the grape juice thing? Do you have any other stomach-bug home remedies to share??
