Day 3 of fever-vile

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Anna is still sick. It is probably just viral, but when her fever spiked to 103.7 last night, even this relatively calm momma freaked out.
So I called the doctor today to make sure it isn’t strep or an ear infection. I don’t think it is. She isn’t eating much, but I imagine if she had strep she’d be screaming that her throat hurt. We’ll see. I’ll update you on the news from sick-vile when we get back from the doctor this afternoon.

Anna is still sick. I’m calling the doctor tomorrow. Her fever is only breaking for a few hours after taking a fever reducer and then it is back up again. Poor baby.

One year ago today…

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

…we took Natalie’s ashes to the cometary. But I am growing weary of recounting those sad milestones. If you want to read about that, it’s here.
Still, I can’t avoid noticing one more moment of personal melodrama; we buried my only child on this date last year…and today is “Father’s Day.” Nothin’ I can do about that. I know we all have days of grief…and life goes on.


sick again

My poor baby girl is sick again.
Anna has developed a runny nose over the past few days and today she ran a fever of 103.
Our Christmas Eve gathering has already been cancelled because my grandma-in-law was in the hospital with pnuemonia. So we were to go and exchange gifts tomorrow. That won’t happen if Anna is still running a fever. This is why I don’t make any plans for big Christmases. Something always happens.
I’m sad though. I’ve spent every Christmas Eve for the past seven years with hubby’s extended family.

“For somehow, not only at Christmas,
but all the long year through,
the joy that you give to others
is the joy
that comes back to you.”–John Greenleaf Whittier

Giving and Receiving

I got this email today from Momsense, a MOPS radio transcript…

At MOPS, we have a powerful visual aid to remind us as mothers that though we are meeting everyone else’s needs, we too have needs. We too need to be nurtured. The reminder is a crumpled up, empty cardboard juice box with a bunch of straws sticking into it, symbolic of the way we moms feel as everyone around us sticks their straws into us and sucks and sucks until we feel totally empty with nothing left to give.

If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I’m just another decorator.


In Memorium

Natalie’s memorial service is over. It truly was uniquely a blogger’s send-off.
Her former pastor Brent spoke almost entirely in Nattie’s own words from this site. Her cousin Mark from Colorado Springs played the piano and sang the last song she posted here. Blogging buddies Heather and Joanne read a passage they had resurrected overnight from the crashed “Nattie Writes” on the Internet Archive. Another cousin, Laurie from Auberry, California, read several comments posted June 7 in response to the question on the W@H site–“What do you love about our Nattie Rose?” All brought laughs and tears in similar numbers.
Thank you to Nat’s Internet friends Valerie (Missouri), Joanne (Washington), Angie (Indiana), Cynthia (Illinois), Cheryl (Missouri), and Heather (Mississippi), who traveled to help us celebrate her life. We also appreciate the rest of you who joined us and our Natalie Rose, in spirit.
On a related note, the funeral director told me that the only person to get more guestbook entries on the Home’s website was Bill Gaither’s dad. Rock on, Nat!
I still do not intend to make this my blog, but I do have a few more things that I want to post in the not too distant future, so check back at your leisure.
Thank you for your prayers and good wishes.–Nattie’s Daddy
