In my life so far, one of the most difficult challenges I have faced is being sick as a mother. I'm sure you've seen the commercial about parents not being able to take sick days. Well that is me right now, trying to figure how to to take care of my (sick) children, be kind to my (sick) husband, and also get myself the medical attention and rest that I so desperately need. I have never felt so helpless. Fortunately, as she often does, my mom has come to my rescue offering an endless amount of support. (And yes, I am 30 and I still count on my mom.)
As I write this, Ryan is at school, Connor is napping, and I'm drinking hot tea with honey, bundled in blankets in bed, crossing my fingers that the meds will kick in and my body will soon have the strength to fight back.
