Some days are harder than others when you have a kiddo like my little guy. Don't get me wrong, he is a COMPLETE JOY and I LOVE him to the moon and beyond... and to be honest, even with all his medical issues, he's an easy, mild tempered, totally laid back, go with the flow kid! All thanks be to our mighty God!
As the winter (Flu/RSV) season creeps closer and closer my thoughts turn to what this will look like for us this winter. Last winter we went into complete isolation to keep Wyatt safe from sickness and having to have another hospital visit. It was worth it for us. He hasn't really been sick. We the sniffles once and he's on the mend of a mild cold as we speak but other than that, nothing. What parents of an almost 14 month old can say that (I can think of only one, Robyn A!)
We've moved closer to James' work and with that, we've switched church campuses (one with more families with kiddos), closer to long time friends (minus my dear Brenna) and in a new home group. A very active home group. I've been invited to a Bible Study that is during the day, during the week. One of the things I so looked forward to as a stay at home mom was women's bible studies with other women/moms! It's here and I'm not sure I can go but my heart longs to go. I'm scrambling around texting nurses/babysitters to see if anyone can consistently watch Wyatt each week. The church provides child care but I can't check this little dude in to a big group of kids. We just now let Wyatt go to our church nursery, and he has an adult buddy that works with just him... and he got a cold the first day. It would unwise at this point to allow him into a situation like that just because I want to go to a Bible study with my friends.
I'm not trying to complain here, just work out my thoughts and to ask for prayers for James and I as we approach this season of isolation again. It won't be the exact same as last year but we will still isolate to a degree, I just don't know which degree just yet. It's a lonely time for us both and was very hard on us last year. We are still feeling the effects of the isolation (loss of some friends, no church, no home group, ect...) God is still good. I know I say it all the time, but He is, even in this craziness of loneliness, He comforts.
We live in Texas for a reason, can't it just be warm (not steaming hot) year round with NO flu season!?!?! haha.
Thanks for praying for us!
