A Day in the Life of a Sick Baby

My darling, BRAVE, husband watched Little Man today ALL BY HIMSELF!! I am not being sarcastic when I say that these are the days when you think, "how do people survive doing this alone?" I have meetings on Thursday nights and don't get home until almost 7 (which is a LONG time to be alone with a very sick 10 month old). Today was rough. Mr. Howard said he would cry and want to be held, but then fuss and be angry he was being held. He would wipe his nose and get frustrated that it was running, but then get REALLY angry when Mr. Howard tried to use the nose sucker. He would want to eat, but then get royally pissed when Mr. Howard gave him the bottle.

I was thinking today, though, that if we never had days like this - how could we possibly appreciate the others? You know the feeling when you have a stuffy nose and then FINALLY can breath...that wonderful, smile spreads to your face and you think, "Gosh I am sooo wonderfully blessed to be able to breath out of my nose. Thank you Lord for this nose. Thank you for the ability to smell!" Right? Tell me I'm not the only one who thinks that?!?

Well today, hopefully, will bring about one of those moments soon. Right, Lord? Soon?
