Please pray for my poor hubby. He's been feeling pretty lousy for several days, went to see the doc here in Chattanooga a couple times, and discovered yesterday that he has a pretty bad case of...MONO!!!
This is NO fun at all, if you know anything at all about the disease. He's still in the contagious phase and was told firmly to avoid close contact with other people for the next 5 days and rest, rest, rest for the next 2-3 weeks. He still plans to preach his first sermon Sunday morning, but will be hiding out in the prayer room before service and leave quickly after. He wants to spread the love, not the Mono germs.
These instructions are very difficult for my on-the-move man. He proclaimed this evening, after 1 day of mostly lying on the couch working on his laptop, "Jen, I'm bored!" Later when I was feeding Noelle her dinner, I caught him moving boxes into the attic. Hello!?! Is this resting?!?
As Noelle and I are headed out Sunday afternoon to my folks for a couple days (to avoid his "cooties"), I've got some spies enlisted to keep an eye on him and to make sure he's a good patient. If anyone sees him engaging in unrestful activities while I'm away, please contact me immediately. :-)
p.s. we still don't have internet at home...
