I haven't been online in the last few days because my daughter has been really sick along with my son. My daughter has got a low immune system to start with due to a child hood disease when she was about 3 months old. The school year alone she has missed 29 days. (Yes I have looked into homeschooling, but hubby isn't on board with it). However, the past two weeks has been a living nightmare and I have not gotten any kind of sleep. Finally my daughter went back to school yesterday and today only for me to get a call from the school telling me that after the naps my daughter woke up with a really bad red eye and the school nurse feels it is pink eye and then she tells me that I can not bring her back until I can get a letter from the doctor's office with a bill of health. My son ended up getting the flu, pneumonia, and a few other things and he ran a fever and we could not get rid of it, until today, (he is feeling better and I have ran my back side off today with him). But because I am so busy taking care of everyone else, I literally forget about me and slowly I am going down. I have had a bladder infection for a tad over a month, but can't even be bothered with it because I have too many other things to worry about and do. I barely eat through out the day and if I do it is a snack here and there.
But as some know my husband drives a truck over the road so I am left to do everything alone. It is good money that he makes, but my sanity is slowly slipping away. I can't even begin to tell him I need him home because I do not want him feeling bad or anything like that. Plus there is no where around here for him to get a job. But he has been looking at another company to drive for and they more so work them 4.5 days and then home 2 days, but again there is no guarantee of that either. I have praying that God brings him home to a wonderful job here so he can be home every night or every day because I just can't do this. We do not have the parents or means for me to have someone watch the kids so I can have a day or so to myself.
But please just pray that my children's health will improve and that He heals their bodies as well as something for my husband and I know that part is me just being selfish but still. Thank you!
