not feeling so well...

I cried all day yesterday about baby Isaac. That is just so sad. My heart is broken for his mommy. Something funny did happen yesterday that I thought I would share with you to lighten the mood.
I was crying and standing in the kitchen fixing the boys' lunch and decided to tell them how much I loved them. I told them that I loved them with my whole heart... I told them how proud of them I am... I told them how I loved being their mommy and how thankful I am to God that He gave them to me... I went on and on and on. They were sitting at the bar. Tears were rolling down my face as I turn around to finish making sandwiches. I knew this would be so special for them to hear how much their mommy loved them. As I finished the sandwiches, I said, "there is only one
Person who loves you more than mommy... and that is Jesus. He loves you more than mommy or daddy or mimi..." When I turn back around to hand them their lunch, there were only 2 empty seats! Those turkeys were in my bedroom watching Ratatouille while I was having my special moment. I just imagined them giggling and tip-toeing out of there. I got so cracked up. Oh well, I guess they already know how much I love them. That's good.
Then I started not feeling so good and told Tim I wanted to lay down after he got home from work. I started chilling and my lymph nodes started swelling. I couldn't move because I was so cold. I stayed there all night and just moaned. I was so miserable. My fever got up to almost 104 this morning. I feel awful and I don't know what is going on. Please pray that it is just a no-big-deal virus. It is really scary after being on so many antibiotics the possibility of getting a super-infection. I was really afraid in the night time. I am still not doing good. My fever is hovering around 102. I had blood work done today and, Praise the Lord!, that my babysittter was able to come and help me with the boys this afternoon. I am in bed with my laptop and that is where I will probably stay until tomorrow.
I did get some really fun pictures of the boys that I am dying to post if I can get enough energy to go to the other computer and upoad them. Check back later.

I smiled when I read about your special moment with the boys (chairs) and they were having some time with Ratatouille! Cute!
I'm sorry that you aren't feeling well, and glad to hear that you were in to get labs done. Hope you get your results back soon. In the meantime- REST! and REST! and feel better soon.
Hugs and prayers,

I hate you are sick...I pray it is just a virus (there are so many going around now) and it passes soon. I know how hard it is to take care of 3 small children when you can hardly lift your head!

And those pictures in the next post are AWESOME!!!
