This past week, I have been very ill and suffering. Amy (15) demanded that I go straight to bed, as of Wednesday morning. I have been there ever since. The children have all been checking on me and seeing if I need anything.
It all reminded me of the many times I have been in the hospital. I was served three meals a day, no matter how sick I was. At first, I would be on a liquid diet. This consisted of jello, tea, and broth. They would even serve that to me three times a day, until I started to heal. We had to do a similar thing here at home.
Nicole was home for a few days and was worried about me. When she went back to the city with her sister, she called to ask if I was okay. "If you need anything, let me know." She told me.
Last night, Amy was on the phone with Rachel (22). They were going over the sales flier together, planning meals for the next few days, and creating a shopping list. (Rachel is a food genius. - smiles) They did a great job.
That night, Amy had an important dance class. I had Matthew (17) drive while I sat in the passenger seat with the chair reclined a little. He has his permit and is learning to drive very well. After we dropped Amy off at class, he drove to the supermarket. I waited in the car with John (13) while Matthew went in to do all the shopping. Then he picked up Amy and drove us home. I went back to bed.
Amy gave me a nice cup of jello and John turned on the television for me. The sweetest thing is having the children check on me from time-to-time. I will hear a little voice in the dim room. "Do you need anything, Mom?" They have all been so helpful.
Of course, my house is not as clean as I would like and the laundry has been neglected, but I am slowly recovering. I did not write a post for the Home Economics series on Tuesday and I will not write for Fit Mommy today.
I need to get back to bed. I hope I get better by Monday!
Hope you are doing well!
