Just to update anyone who's interested...

Brad's fever has continued and fluctuated through the week but every morning, he stubbornly forced himself out the door. He's on some prescription strength Motrin and is doing pretty much everything he can... except what he really NEEDS to do - and that is REST for DAYS. Fortunately, he has Saturday and Sunday off - although he has a mandatory study group on Sunday afternoons. But I think at least twenty four hours of doing NOTHING at all will be very helpful. He has had papers every night this week which has not really allowed him to relax much in the evenings but it has been kind of fun for me to help him craft them.

I am hoping to set up an appointment for him to get some bloodwork done this afternoon so that we can find out if there is something more sinister afoot - like Lyme's Disease or something. Gulp.

Thanks to all of you who prayed - it made a difference. Brad said he could tell people were praying for him.

In the midst of all this, Stan had a health crisis of his own that necessitated a visit to his primary care physician. But that is another story for another day. But, suffice it to say that we have had enough drama around here to last us for a long, LONG time.

Hope you feel better soon, Brad....and you, too, Stan, whatever may ail you.

By the by, Claire, I do remember 20 years ago, when my hubbie went away to the police academy and he was deathly ill the night before...hmmmm....Hope he is doing better and you are getting by without him.

To continue our blogging conversation:

When Paul went to the academy, he was required to stay there all phone contact at all. Even though he was just 20 minutes from home. We had been married 6 short months. But we survived!
I am so glad for you that Brad can come home each night! Especially because you have Aiden! (who, by the way, is SUCH a darling boy!)

Hope to see you again sometime in person, when you come up north for a visit! And maybe we can meet Aiden, too!
