Migraines: 2 Mommy: 1

Well, Day 2 and Day 3 of the Operation were not so great. Migraines attacked with a vengeance and I was down for the count yesterday. Today was better by far, but still not 100%
Therefore, there are no pictures. I have to say, God has blessed me with possibly the sweetest little girl in the whole world. She kept Jacob from climbing on me when I was resting on the couch yesterday. She told me "I'll take care of him. You just rest." After a quick bath (pretty much in, wash, out) I was about to lose my supper. I told Anna I hurt too bad to read a book, so she said "Don't worry Mommy. I'll read Jacob some books." So as I sat in the chair, they sat on her bed and she read him at least 5 books. And praise God, Jacob went to bed easily! Anna came to my room not long after saying she was thirsty. I took the lid off her cup and she got herself some more water. She climbed up into bed with me at some point b/c when I woke up 4 1/2 hrs. later, she was there. Thankfully the ice pack and sleep helped and today I felt mostly better. It reared its ugly head several times, but not for very long. These are the days when I wish we had a live-in chiropractor and masseuse! But God is good and we all made it through the last two days! Only one more day and Daddy is HOME!!!

Ooh, that does not sound like fun. I don't get migraines (or haven't) but getting sick while daddy is not around is definitely a fear of mine. It's not as big of deal now that Abigail is older but still, not fun when you can't rest like you need too. Hopefully you feel better today!

How awful. But what a sweet girl you have. How amazing that she knew just the things to ease the burden...
