Please remind me that even "normal" "healthy" children....GET SICK! Please tell me that my extremely lethargic, vomitting, diarrea covered, non-eating or drinking baby boy WILL get better soon. Please remind me that even though he is displaying all of those symptoms with NO fever....it does NOT mean that he has some form of cancer, his organs are not failing, and he has not had some disease since birth that has been undetected until now. PLEASE remind me of these things, because my mind is having a difficult time learning that! In part this is because of all that we have been through with Emma, but it is also because I have thrown myself into story after story about sick children. My heart aches for those families that are dealing with sick children day in and day out, and at times I have become obsessed with different children's stories. I understand what they are going through....I've been there. HOWEVER, I do not want to go through it again. And, while I KNOW That that is not what is happening.....I still need a little reminder that this is "just" a normal childhood illness, right??
Please tell me that my SILLY MONKEY will be back soon...hiding the remote control from us, laughing and running away from me with my cell phone, giving me big kisses as I walk out the door as he says, "Bye Mommy". I NEED to see that little rascal BACK in this house SOON!
