Poor little Bennett woke up this morning with a high fever and a sore throat. I have had a headache and sore throat as well, so I stayed home with him from church. My morning sickness seems to be getting worse, but I recently read that week 10 and 11 are usually the worst. I have my first midwife appointment on Tuesday and hopefully I can hear the baby's heartbeat. That is always so reassuring! I am going to talk to her about acupuncture. I know, it's kind of weird, but I have been reading about women with bad morning sickness that have been helped by it. At this point, I am desperate enough to try just about anything. Please pray I don't get the full blown flu, I don't think I could handle it with how bad I already feel. Pray that Rachel and Jeromy stay healthy as well. That is all that is going on here, but it is enough!! Thank you for your prayers.

I think that if there is one "benefit" above all else that I am looking forward to in glory, it is the absence of physical illness. Yes, this is not technically the correct answer (what with the primary purpose being the eternal glorification of God and all), but I readily confess it as my fallen human wish. I utterly abhor being sick. It is well that I am not a woman. I would sooner volunteer to be the first man to hit the beach in a D-Day assault than meander around for sixteen or twenty weeks feeling generally crummy and nauseous.

May God grant best speed to your recovery!

Thank you, Matt, for your sympathy. I think I too would rather be fighting a battle, climbing Everest or doing pretty much anything else besides feeling as bad as I do right now. It has taken a turn for the worse too. Every time I rise from the couch, BAD things happen! I'll let you use your imagination on that one. Yuck! My prayers are with you and Mystie right now.
