My Poor Sister

A little perspective for anyone who thinks they're having a bad week. My sister is at home with a 4 year old, a 13 month old, & newborn twins. My sister, her husband & the 13 month old all have a debilitating stomach virus. Having just had a C-Section, my sister can't pick up her 13 month old, who is very sick & undoubtedly begging to be picked up. Having recently had this horrific stomach virus myself, I can't imagine how much worse it is having a freshly made incision in your lower abdomen. So far, the 4 year old & the twins haven't gotten sick. So far...

To add insult to injury, the online calendar that was set up to make sure she has food for these first 2 weeks at home is screwed up & she quit receiving food last Tuesday. Luckily I have awesome friends (Katie & Holly) who, in a favor to me, took food to her over the weekend. I've since tracked down some of her friends on Facebook & enlisted their help. I think at this point she should be good through spring thaw. Also, today is her birthday. I sent her flowers, at which point her poor, sick husband remembered it was her birthday & sent her a 'happy birthday' text from the bedroom he's been quarantined to since Sunday.

Seriously.
