I could use those prayers…..

I feel miserable. I’ve had a nasty lingering cold, clogged Eustachian tube, and sore throat for about 10 days. But today……oh it’s gotten worse. Now I have the stomach flu and I am SO tired.

Here are a couple of quotes heard in my house today

“Mom…..what are you doing in there? Oh no. DAD!!!! Mommy is throwing up!”

“Why are you sleeping all day, can you play a game with me?”

“What is for dinner mom?” (Like I am going to jump off the couch and whip up a yummy, nutritious meal!)

“Oh honey I feel so bad for you………………. Ah, what should I make for dinner?”

“Don’t worry I will do all the dishes! ” (Praise God for my sweet hubby)

She is throwing up again!” ( Why do they feel the need to announce this for everyone!?)

“You look horrible”

I have tried all of these products and still feel miserable. Any other suggestions? I have drank so much green tea, it’s a wonder I don’t pee green. πŸ™‚ Please also pray for Amy at Laughing through the Tears, she is such a trooper. She has had a rough time lately with several personal and health issues. UPDATE – I just got back from the Dr. and I have strep and a bit of an ear infection. So I am hoping the antibiotic will kick in soon! Thanks for ALL your prayers! There are so many of you who are sick also….praying for all of you! ~Sandy



  1. Ohhhhh…. I feel for you!! I have had the flu for about 3 (yes, THREE) weeks. I was really bad off for about a week and a half – now I just have a persistant cough and am still tired a lot. Take care of yourself!! Robutusun (sp?) DM helped a lot… the nightime formula is great, it will knock you out though.

  2. Hi, I’ve had cold for about two weeks. It was more than an anoyance than anything else until this past Wednesday. It morphed into laryngitis, but I’m o.k. with that now. Now, I just cough at night.

    I’ve been taking Delsym and Phenylephrine hydrochloride, aka equate Manimum strength nasal decongestant PE. The latter helps to dry up the secretions that run down the back of my throat making me cough.

    May the Lord pour out His healing oil on ALL of us!!! In Jesus’ name!!!

  3. Hope you are already feeling better! Yep, this time of year, I think nearly every mom could open her own private pharmacy. May God give you the strength you need, every moment. There’s just something about being ill, even for a day, that turns a world-beating multi-tasking mom right back into a prayer warrior! πŸ˜‰


  4. Oh Sandy, I am so sorry! I didn’t know until now you were so sick. I kow it’s too late, but the one thing that helped me when I started getting it was Zyrtec. I think that’s how you spell it. It’s over the counter and I nipped it in a few days!

    Thanks for your prayers and mention. I am fine. I know so many others that go through such trials day in and day out that this is nothing. I know our Lord has His hand in it and will take us just where we need to be! I do appreciate prayers for my husband. This new medical challenge has him so down. He just doesn’t understand why people have to suffer. Especially his wife.

    I do pray you are on the mend and feeling back to your old self again!
