"the Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak." -Isaiah 40:28-29
 I am truly having to constantly remember verses like this one these past few weeks. Here is whats going on..
Sawyer has the FLU! On a normal occasion the flu is terrible no matter the circumstances but I feel even more frustrated and sad because this is truly the 7th consecutive week that someone in our little family of 3 have been sick - Name it we've had it! I had a fever and stomach virus after Christmas, Sawyer had a fever virus after Christmas, Sawyer got the hand foot mouth disease virus that lasted for more than 6 days, I caught that virus from Sawyer, Sawyer has had 3 double ear infections in the last 4 weeks, Andrew got the stomach bug last week that I of course caught the very next day. On top of all that I had been going through some health stuff with my sinuses. I have been on strong medicine for over 5 weeks and I am awaiting the news of whether or not I have to have surgery. Therefore when my doctor came in today and said not only does he have another double ear infection but he also tested positive for the flu, I couldn't help but start BALLING! 
I am just so sad for my poor sick baby. He is so pitiful already and we have a long week ahead of worsening symptoms. Oh dear Lord grant me strength and most of all energy to take care of my sick sick baby all week. I feel so weary and exhausted and know that the only way I am going to get through this is by the word of the Lord and by the Holy Spirit living through me. I would absolutely appreciate any prayers being lifted up for our sickly family. Prayers for strength, rest, and most of all health for all three of us. I am really praying that I don't get this too. My immune system is so shot and I have lost so much weight that I just don't know what I would do if I got this too. 
Thanks for listening blogging friends! I know one thing is for sure; The lord assigns us our portion and draws us closer to Him in the times that we are running on empty. Nothing about any of these sicknesses are serious (Praise God!) therefore I am just having one of those days that I am totally feeling sorry for myself and for my baby. Thanks for letting me vent and share. Praise be to God even in the midst of the yucky FLU! 
This is what he's doing as I have been typing this post! POOR BABY!
