Have Lysol, Will Get Well

Have you ever walked around with Lysol – because YOU were the cootie bug in your house? What if it “hits” right before your free LegalShield Rewards Vacation to Cancun?

PHISSSSSSSHHHHH with “That would suck!”

Remember, Anne, spray: doorknobs, surfaces, fridge door, cell phones, telephone, TV, remote controls, and the list goes on.

We have no clue how or what caused the cootie bug – now called the “Summer of My Discontent” – into our household. My husband returned home healthy and happy from his business trip. I often tease him that women who are “pre-owned” (meaning, I am remarried) are trained to know how to hold someone’s head over a basin and have a degree in Dr. Wife and Dr. Mom. The poor man suffered the stomach bug for three days – and as fast as it had arrived: it was gone.

From him.

My illness lasted a week and a half. I didn’t eat solid foods for a week. The week and a half included three emergency room visits, two changes in nausea medications, driving myself to the emergency room twice, and hearing a nurse whisper, “She should be admitted.” I was terrified, thought I may have something worse than the cootie bug, and indeed, it was a bacterial infection they are now, as I am on my feet again and can actually eat, treating me with two antibiotics. I received the very best care from the Spalding Regional ER and I cannot thank them enough for the hours and hours the staff and a doctor put in to help me. Due to my doctor being out of the country and my in-network issues, I was not able to get into an appointment – one downside to the insurance I have. But Spalding Regional – got me well.

I knew from the first moment of nausea, I would not make my vacation.

The worst of the experience? I wasn’t able to go on my LegalShield rewards vacation. The best of the situation? Getting the excellent care from my local hospital when I was so ill.

I am enjoying the taste of food again, have developed an appreciation for the ability to feel good, and am thankful for prayers. This may be the “Summer of My Discontent,” but I am delighted to be back on my feet!

The Whisper of God Blog

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
