A child’s pain, a mother’s tears

on October 14, 2012

We had a better day today. A full night of sleep really does help. I’m still in a fog and I’ve had more cups of coffee than I care to admit, but seeing E smile today was a relief.

E only had two fevers today and they were far from the 104 of yesterday. She is still very clingy. She plays a bit and then wants to be held. She has eaten a little today as well. She had cake with my mom. After this week, she can have all the cake she wants as long as she is eating. We’ll just call it chocolate therapy.

We had a rough couple of hours this evening. Andy took K to AWANA and E and I were alone. She screamed and arched. She wanted down and then back up. I’m sure her back and kidneys were sore. Poor thing.

I cried with her. Seeing your child in pain is the worst feeling in the world. I couldn’t do anything for her but hold her and hope the medicine kicked in soon.

My heart truly breaks for all the mothers with the privilege, burden, and amazing task of caring for ill children. I cannot fathom their strength. I am exhausted after one week sickness. Those must be the real super heroines and I lift them up in prayer tonight.
