After a generally good, productive day yesterday, I hit another small snag today. I woke up with a terrible sore throat and a fever of near 102 degrees, which has stayed with me all day. I have slept for 5-7 of my normally "waking" hours and I am getting ready to go back to bed again.
I think my body is just too worn down to fight off infection right now. Still, despite being down all day (which eerily reminded me of my days in the hospital, unable to do anything), I am feeling very grateful.
Today my sweet Tolan and darling Trenden took care of everything. Tolan had the kids for the whole days, by himself, with none of the normal entertainment options because of the Sabbath day. He took them for a drive and a "Picnic", which ended up being in the car since it wa only 30 degrees at the top of Monte Cristo. He made lunch, dinner, brownies and took them on a 1.5+ hours long walk to the river and back. WOW! He is truly amazing! He had a positive attitude the whole day and only now declared he needs to be "off duty". My love!
Trenden made me lunch while Dad was gone on the picnic with the other kids. He made me chicken noodle soup and brought it to me, in bed, on a tray, complete with crackers, water and a straw! What an inspirational and in-touch boy I have been blessed with.
Heading back to bed now in hopes of filling better in the morning. Still can't get warm, despite the jammies, sweatshirt, and 2 extra blankets on my bed. I owe a few emails and calls to friends, so give me a few days and I will hopefully be "back on the horse". Know that I love you, so stay away so you don't get sick! :)
