Today was a lot better. He woke up okay watching TV but as soon as I fed him he was man down again gagging and nauseous. As soon as something hits his tummy he feels violently ill. SO today I decided he needs a break. I simply didn't feed him for the rest of the day to see how he goes. He is on a drip and was getting enough fluids. I had to see to Nicole and fetch her from school and take her to her reading therapy and spend some quality time with her. She is battling with this separation from us and it's hard to be in two places at once. At the end of the day our children want their mommies. We have been here since Saturday afternoon so for a 7 year old, 6 days without her mommy is a really long time. I have been going home every day to spend time with her and Bruce and it is tiring, I won't lie. I am exhausted and on top of that I have been very sick myself without having the rest that I need. Today I felt like an absolute zombie. I was in my body but I felt like I was sleep walking. After spending some time at home and having a hospital break I did feel a lot better.
We had some visitors today. The principal from Jason's school came to visit him to pray with us which was really lovely. As she prayed the tears just rolled down my face - I just want my little man to be better!! One of his lovely teachers also came to visit this afternoon whilst I was at home. He was very chuffed to see her.
While Bruce was visiting Jason, Dr. P came on his rounds to examine Jason and check on him. His chest is still quite bad and obviously he isn't taking any food yet. He said to Bruce another day or two. He need the physio, the nebbing and the IV antibiotic.
On my way back to the hospital there was this absolutely beautiful sunset ahead of me. When driving back I was thinking about life and about God and sunsets always remind me that God is in every situation. While I was thinking this, Jason Whatsapp video called me and he said to me "look mommy orange" pointing the phone to the window looking at the same orange sunset I was looking at. This just reminded me that no matter the battles we are going through, God is always there and always in each and every situation. I know this will pass but when you are in the eye of the storm you feel absolutely helpless. These situations always pass and we pick up the pieces and we carry on!! God is always there watching over us and carrying us through!
