Mother of a sick child
Don't get me wrong, I count my chickens and thank God morning, noon and night that Rachel is happy and healthy thanks to doctors and prescribed medication. But when she is sick, like today, it is the most traumatising, helpless feeling in the world.
Today she is running a high fever which might hopefully be just a virus, but is being "watched" for scarlet fever. Never before has a doctor shown me pictures of what "might likely" occur in the next few days.
I know this is nothing major, I know this is a childhood disease, but boy does my heart flip over and my emotions go on a rollercoaster. So today as I watch her sleep I pray that she recovers quickly.
