Whew! Will the coughing never end??? Good grief! 10 days now ... cough ... a round of antibiotics ... cough ... a bottle of Mucinex ... cough ... enough liquid to float the ark ... cough ... can't lay down to sleep - feels like someone is sitting on my chest! ... cough ... Still all the drainage is running either clear or looks like cotton - a sign of allergies. Sigh. Really? Good grief! Sigh.
And now Rick is dealing with it! He started his antibiotics yesterday ... has been on Mucinex for several days ... using his breather ...
No fever ... no chills ... no upset stomach at all ... We are tired - but that comes from the coughing and the lack of sleep/rest ... and we are sore - it hurts to breathe! But the soreness is from all the coughing. Sigh.
So, today - rather than going in to work for Scott here at Coffee Creek ... we cleaned this house! Everything that could be wiped down with antibacterial wipes was! And what couldn't be wiped down got sprayed good with Lysol!
Poor Cheri - our dog! LOL ... she doesn't like Lysol - and there was no where to get away from it this morning! LOL
It may not work to make us feel better - but it has gotten to that point that we had to try something! At least show that we are being pro-active!
Lord, help us please!!!!!
After many requests, I have started another website - this one is all about recipes. Kamelotrose's Kitchen ...
Just getting it started - will be adding to it as quickly as possible! :)
If you have any ideas, comments or suggestions - please let me know!!!!!
A little time on one of my many soap-boxes ...
I know that there are some that question our reasons, our sanity, when it comes to choosing to live in an RV and now work camp. That's ok to question ... and even to question us ... to ask us "Why?"
But ... to question us repeatedly? Time after time? Every time we see one another or speak? And to question us with an air of you know better than we do what we need to be doing in our life? Really?
This was not something that we just woke up one morning with a wild hair and decided to do! This was prayed about, argued over, talked out, researched into. This was a calculated and serious decision that we made. Did we make a mistake? Perhaps - but only Time will tell that! And only God will judge us (rightly) about this.
I can say that Rick's doctor is very well pleased with what he is seeing and hearing from Rick so far. We have been doing this for the last 4 months - and Rick has gotten better reports from the doctor and the lab than since he was first diagnosed with Kidney disease and renal failure! For that reason alone, we will continue to do this as long as God allows it.
I know that some are concerned about us - and we really do appreciate that. We thank God for your care, your concern, your thoughts, and your prayers. We covet that! And those that are actually interested in what we do, where we are - thank you! Your interest in our lives mean so much more to us than these words could ever say. So these words are not meant for you ...
However, there are those that just -for whatever reason- want to stir the pot, or try and control our lives. To you - back up! Stop it! We are not children that need this! We have enough to deal with without having to defend where we are and what we are doing! If you don't approve, and you don't like what we are doing - pray about it. Pray for us - if we are doing something wrong, God will tell us, He will convict us, He will convince us. Pray for us. And other than praying for us - call Rick's doctor ... Mark Greenwell in Paris, TX - tell him that you disapprove of us doing this.
...ok ... stepping down for now ... telling the Madea in me to be quiet, calm down. LOL
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
