A quick update

I am in a bit of a funk lately. Much more on this to come, but wanted to stop by quickly and give all of you, because you are just so wonderful, a quick update. This is huge for me. I don't usually admit this truth as it is happens. In the past, I keep the news private. I put on a brave face and soldier on, but I am different now. I am changed. It is much easier to admit this truth after the fact, after it is better, when I am better. Here it is. I am sick again. This current infection, found a little over a month ago, is persistent and determined. I have so much to write, have written so much in the past week and a half, but right now my head is spinning. I am pursing my lips so I don't vomit. I feel so nauseous, something I haven't felt in so, so long. In fact, a couple of hours ago when the nausea came on in full force, I continued to repeat, this will not happen, I will not go here again. While I type, a thermometer hangs out of my mouth. I don't feel like I have a fever, but I can never be too cautious. This time around this will be different. I learned so much last time and already face this in a new way. I will share shortly, hopefully tomorrow. Right now, I just need to lie back down and try to stay calm and not give in to the nausea. I am scared and full of fight all at once. I will overcome this, I know I will.

Looking forward to checking in again soon.
Temperature is normal, I do not have a fever. One check in the right column.

  13. It must be very scary and disappointing to you having to fight so hard all the time. I understand because my daughter has a similar on going fight. Both of you have my admiration for being strong in dealing with so many health issues. Take care of yourself, rest and don't feel ashamed to admit you are only human in feeling scared. I hope you feel comforted knowing many of us care about you and will pray often that you can kick that illness right to the curb! He is some motherly advice, Sarah. Eating a piece of candied ginger works wonders for calming a sick stomach. It has prevented vomiting many times for my daughter. Hope you feel better very soon!!!!
