drained today

I woke up feeling extra drained today. In fact, I use the term "woke up" very loosely. My white blood cell counts will be at their lowest today, and I am sure that has something to do with how I feel. Also, after faking us out this weekend, Ellie showed her true sick colors yesterday and is holed up on the couch with a cough and a fever. This means Casey is doing this delicate dance of trying to care for both of us while keeping us separated in order to protect my compromised immune system. I have to admit, not only is she really good at taking care of those she loves, but she is really beautiful as she does it.


  1. Isaiah 40:28-31 (New International Version)

    28 Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
    The LORD is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
    He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.

    29 He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.

    30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;

    31 but those who hope in the LORD
    will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

  2. oh man, i am praying for good health for all, for your time in this place, and for the stress Casey must be feeling. what you wrote about her brought tears to my eyes. very lovely.

  3. Ditto and Amen to previous comment!
    love and prayers for you!!!
