sick Sunday

Yesterday Abe was sick, so he stayed home from church. I felt awful because whenever I am sick, Abe lets me sleep and does everything. I was feeling pretty sick myself, so instead of stepping up, after dinner I just lay down on the couch and stayed there.

But I made up for that last night! Ammon puked, poor thing, and then a couple hours later he woke up in the middle of the night starving. Then Mary and Lydia both managed to fall off of their beds. While they were lying on the floor, Mary pulled Lydia’s hair and Lydia hit Mary in the face. At 2am we were all awakened by Mary’s ensuing blood-curdling screams. I rushed to the scene, put everyone back in their place, and came back to bed.

In bed I discovered that Abe was in a lot of pain. I guess the virus settled in his tongue, and it was excruciating. I scurried to bring him some medicine, and then we all went back to sleep.

He is going to be an hour late for work today, and I have no idea how he is going to do all of his meetings when he can barely talk. We’ll pray for him today.
