But We Are In The Palm Of God’s Hands

Sickness can find my daughter a mile away. It started Last Wednesday she came home feeling like she had strep throat, doctor confirmed on Thursday So she got on an antibiotic and was worse by yesterday. Now she has an upper respiratory infection and a bad case of bronchitis. Me I never get sick. Until last night. Throat sinuses and ears felt like someone poured acid through them. Went to sleep knowing I had to see the doctor today. But when I woke up it was horribly worse hard to breathe and coughing spells. The doctor is 30 minutes away and I did not know if I could make it but I thought to myself I will not be alone God will be with me.

And of course I made it to the doctor albeit a little late. Doctor said yes Your Daughter got you sick. Prescription for nasal spray and antibiotic. I left the doctor feeling worse than I went in, but I thought it was because I was faced with the drive back home. Doing everything I had to do before returning home, well it took about an hour. When I got home it was so hard to breathe I was worse than when I went to the doctor so I called the doctor they said go to the Emergency Room. I hung up the phone knowing that was not a possibility I am too sick to make it there. So finally I got my prescriptions a few minutes ago and I know God will use this to cure me.

But I cannot eat or drink anything it is like I have rabies that thought repulses me. But I make myself drink the Gatorade but it makes my chest close up when the cold liquid goes down my throat. Well it is not even really cold just room temperature but it feels cold to the acid burnt linings of my throat. Which makes my chest tighten up. I am still trying to take care of my daughter as she is still sick too. I made it to the bathroom and when I was making it back to bed I saw her lying right in the place I needed to get. She was on her stomach looking like a dead fish. As a mother you know you cannot tell your sick child to get out of your bed. So I made my way to the other side and just laid down there. Later when she got the energy to get up I forced myself to go back to my side because my husband was on his way and he is sick luckily he has been on an antibiotic for a couple of days but  he has been going to work and I do not know how he got the strength to make it for the last two days but he had to give up when he got home. Told his boss he would work from home.

With all of us down we only have God’s strength to rely on. I know it is enough. I am sorry that this post will be so short but I just need to snuggle down in the Palm of God’s Hand and wait for the medicine and God’s Grace to get me better.

  1. You may have pharyngitis on top of a virus. I get this along with ulcers in my throat. Although people will tell you to gargle with warm saltwater, it will aggravate the condition if it is ulcers. The only thing that has ever worked for me is combining herbs in a special tea to use in that area. The herbs I use are: myrrh (kills some of the pain and disinfects), red root (takes down swelling), aloe, and Pau D’Arco (kills viruses). The aloe and Pau D’Arco are capsules, so I open them up and put the powder into a coffee mug (one aloe capsule opened, 2 Pau D’Arco opened). Add 1/2 teaspoon of myrrh powder, one teaspoon of red root powder. Pour boiling water in the mug, stir to mix, set a saucer on top of it and let it steep for 30 minutes. Then I drain it through a coffee filter which I’ve put in a big cup (only put it near the top so you have open space below it for the liquid to accumulate during drainage. Don’t drink it like regular tea. Gargle with it. You can take a few sips, if you need to. To be honest, I clean my hands and then dip my finger in the tea and apply it to the sides or back of my throat. I realize not everyone can do that. Would be great if you had a disinfected clean spray bottle (like one that had been used with a throat spray) and could pour the tea in the bottle to spray.
