The last two nights have been so much better! I still have to get all the way up just to turn over every couple of hours, but I am able to go back to sleep. I also have not had any more fevers in two days.
Getting so much sleep means I wake feeling stronger, which brings more normal. I can help dress my children, and feed them breakfast, and cook my own oatmeal. I am awake for my scripture study, and get to do a little Hebrew each morning.
My favorite part, though?
Nathan taking me for a walk. Even if I can’t go far yet, and even if I am slow as anything, it feels amazing to be out of the house and in the fresh air. I love and need the sunshine on my skin, and to move felt glorious – excepting the part about living at the top of a hill.
So now I will nap. Again.
But it was a good bit of normal, and that counts for something.
