Where are the Bilby's????
I truly mean this - your kind comments and emails have kept me going over here - we thought we were "in the clear" last night as we went to bed - Micah and Caleb had no fevers (still laying flat - but no fevers!!) and Aaron and Chloe seemed great. 11:00 pm - Aaron's up with a raging fever and Chloe walks out of her room and her face is VERY red - here we go again!! If I thought the boys with high fevers was yucky, imagine a 2 year old with a raging fever - she acts dillusional - she cries, whimpers, thrashes all over the bed and then tries to get up and come find us - I finally gave in and slept in her bed (I NEVER do that - I love my sleep too much!!!) But that didn't even work - she just kept saying - "Mommy, I NEED you to howd me." (That's "hold" in Chloe language.) But after hours of sitting up in bed holding a little one that becomes dangerous - I was afraid I'd fall off the bed!! She only sleeps for 30-45 min. at a time and then spends an hour crying because she's so uncomfortable. Tonight I'm sleeping on the couch - one of the boys will have to be de-throned - I've got to find a spot I can sleep sitting up with her! SO, there it is - the Bilby Saga in a nutshell - just wanted to catch you all up since you aren't here to experience it with us!! :) Thanks for thinking of us though - I'm feeling like I need it at this point!!
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
