More Sock Summit stories and photos will have to wait a bit…. and also I’ve collected SO many ideas to share. But right now I’m sitting in the Portland airport on a standby list trying to get home (kalamazoo home) to my babies.
80 % of them are sick. Looks like H1N1 flu, and the littler ones are on Tamiflu. Best guess is that Emily brought it home from Interlochen.
Managing Danny when he’s sick can be really hard. His breathing muscles are very, very weak, so it’s scary when he has the potential for illness settling in his chest. Taking care of multiple kids sick at the same time is hard. Jane and AJ and my parents are doing an awesome job. I still feel really guilty though, and it’s so difficult to be away from my babies when they don’t feel good.
Here’s what I’m praying for as I sit in the airport:
1. That Danny stays stable from a metabolic and respiratory standpoint.
2. That my stand-by journey is safe and uncomplicated.
3. That I don’t get sick when I get there, because I have to drive to NC this week – George has surgery a week from today.
4. And for special blessings for my parents and sister and AJ who have been taking care of my babies with such care and love.
I’ll update when I can.
