Or is it??? It has been quite some time since my last entry. Since then I have dealt with a merry-go-round of fevers. Once one boy gets over it, another one gets it. It is a sad state when you can actually empty an entire bottle of Children's Motrin! *sigh*
Around 2am last night, Tank woke up screaming. I rushed upstairs and he was burning up. I was able to get him into the kitchen but then had to almost collapse onto the floor because I felt so faint. Not like the vapors or anything (you Little House fans know what I'm talkin about), but like I am really going to pass out. You know, you get all woozy-dizzy, flash of cold, and you can't see straight all of a sudden.
So I sent Dash to wake up daddy...my hero! Eventually, the boys will be big enough to carry me to the couch but for now it's just the man himself that can do it. Oh and he gave me a cold glass of water-- with a straw so I could drink and not have to lift up my spinning head (spinning inside...not around like a horror movie...contrary to what some people may say about me). And he dosed Tank up with Motrin for the night as well. Double-sweet of him, huh?
So in the midst of all this, the boys all went down to our bed to crash and I stayed on the couch all night. The weirdest part is that both of my arms started feeling numb...all the way down to my fingertips. I thought surely there was something terribly wrong with me. I honestly could not bring myself to lift my head up, not even an inch. Man, the things you think about when you are woozy-headed and have arms that don't feel right.
When I was in 4th grade, my dad had a brain aneurism. I had a friend die of a brain aneurism at the ripe old age of 22. A few years ago, my big sis had a tumor on her uterus the size of a grapefruit. Is this what it would feel like??? I did have that weird, sharp pain a few days ago. And a couple of weeks ago, I was dizzy for an entire day...hmmmm....
So I'm just laying there in the dark, with my tingly-numb arms, wondering if this is what it feels like to have a brain aneurism...or a tumor... Scary, huh? This further led to thoughts about not having done my Will yet...although I have had the paperwork collecting dust on my nightstand for over 6 months.
So for all of you nightowls out there, have you made a Will yet? Have you set down in writing who will take care of your children should something happen to both you and your spouse? Do you know how much one of those full-body scans costs? I'd really like to get one of those. Honest.
And the BIG question is: Are you ready for eternity? If you were to die today, do you know for sure that you would spend eternity in heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ? While I can't tell you exactly who should watch your dear little ones if something tragic were to happen, I CAN tell you how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and accept Him as your personal Saviour. Just click on that handy-dandy link on my sidebar to e-mail me...and I promise I will answer.
Okay, those are my thoughts for the day, week, year! I promised my sis (the one with the grapefruit sized tumor that the doc actually took a picture of to show us in the waiting room-- yes, it was icky but VERY cool!) that I would go to the doctor about this bodily weirdness. I'll let y'all know what he says...and it better be more than...Well, you know you ARE getting older.....
