Melt your heart
I was going to give you an update on Yellowstone Church, but I stayed home today with Jeffrey who was running a fever of 104.6 for most of the day. This has been going on since Sat at 3 am. This afternoon though, we think he may have had an allergic reaction to the Motrin I had been giving him every six hours. Now we are back to the Tylenol which unfortunately only last 3 1/2 hours. It also only drops his temp to 102. His breathing in very shallow and there is just something about a two year old (especially the one that brings me to my knees often) that just wants to sit on your lap and fall asleep - or at least try to. Right now he is kind of asleep on my lap while I type, but every so often, he jumps (and I back space), readjusts, and settles back down. His cheeks are bright red and despite the fact that I am wearing a tank top, I am not cold. He is quite the little heater. While it is 1:40am and I would like to crawl into bed at some time this evening, I really am cherishing this sweet time to just hold him still and pray for him. For his health, but also for his future - the kind that goes beyond the temper-tantrums and poopy diapers.
