Oh here we go, again

Sweet mercy, sickness has hit our family again. It's now Jacob. He's the child that rarely gets sick. He has what we jokingly call "Chad's immune system". Because that man rarely gets sick, he was literally never sick (other than the childhood chicken pox and that was before he was in school!), never had a cold, never had the flu, no allergies. You can say it, I do...DISGUSTING! The first time the man got sick was when the ARMY started making the flu shot mandatory for , soldiers, yep you guessed it...Chad ended up with the flu, 103 fever, was severly dehydrated, I had to take him in, he got iv fluids and was watched for a couple of hours and then I was allowed to bring him home, push the fluids (they recommended plain pedialyte...oh the whining! LOL no seriously though...you'd have thought he was the first human to ever have the flu). Anyways...Chad gets sick normally once a year, when he's forced to get that STUPID "vaccination". Ok back to our own boy wonder (of immune systems)...he's now the sick one. When it was time for him to go to bed he tells us his stomach feels funny, I asked funny like he was going to be sick and he said "no, just really squiggly"...Chad and I KNEW he was coming down with something...well 1 AM on the dot it hit him. He's not vomitting at least. His stomach's now of course really hurting him. I'm praying that no one else will end up with this, but I'm not holding my breath. With this of course there's a decent chance Chad's going out to the field for a couple weeks too in a few days (we're still waiting for the final decision, because he's supposed to be moving to a brand new company, but they need him in the company he's in too...so we're waiting and hope to know by tomorrow). It would just be really nice to have him home at least in the evenings if I'm dealing with sick kidS. If you would pray that only Jacob is afflicted and that this leaves his body very quickly.

Also I want to thank all of you who commented on my last entry. I'm human and being told such ugliness hurts, but you know I won't let anyone define me...only I and Jesus can do that (well my kids and hubby too, but you know what I mean!!). I won't let someone who is not willing or brave enough to admit who they actually are, who make up a fake name, be used by Satan to tear me down. I will use their comments to the best of my ability to Glorify JESUS, because he's the one who loves me, defines me, and KNOWS ME, and forgives me!

Thank you again to those who know me so much and truly love me, and even my blogger followers/friends who care enough to continue to remind me of who's the TRUTH and who's the LIAR! I have a KING, a FATHER, a SALAVATION and he trumps the king of lies every single time!!!!!

Thank you again also for prayers for Jacob.

I hope he feels better soon! And that your husband can be there for you too. When Ben first left for Germany, I got really really sick and then DW did too. Not fun.
