my head is exploding

Tuesday night I stayed up late to studying for a Greek quiz. Then about 2 am (an hour after I fell asleep) I got the worst feverish chills ever. I was literally shaking in my bed and I was so cold I did not want to move or get out of bed. God love my wife Katrina. She got me an extra blanket (on top of our down comforter that tells you how cold I was). About every 2 hours I would wake up in drenched in sweat and then two hours later shivering from chills. This repeated itself for the next 12 hours. No I did not take my Greek quiz and boy I really needed another good grade before I hit finals in two weeks - grace abounds. I finally got out of bed (having been nursed with liquids by my beloved bride) at about 5:30 pm. Today she got it. This all started last week with Kyra getting sick Thursday then Elena, then Alex and then Zach and finally us. This sucks! I hate being sick. I hate being sick and taking care of sick people. Katrina is so much more gracious and care giving when it comes to this stuff. Thanks to Nathan Darity who brought us pot roast and Garret Bruce who made us pancakes for dinner!

You might want to get a mask before you come over to the leper colony.

Dude that's horrible. Between our two families there's been enough sick days for the rest of our lives! Teah is still sick, 3rd sickness in a row - making for a month of having either colds or the stomach flu.

"my head is exploding" reminded me of this ..... "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice'. For I have not come to call the righteous, but the sick." It's good to know there is a God who is not afraid of the sick.

Sometimes I love thinking I'm well just a little too much.
