Worst Week Ever

Ben and I were having such a great week last week...playing with cars and trucks and tractors, going to the park, and just hanging out together. Friday night I went to the movies with some friends (got a babysitter and everything!), and by the time I got home, I was not feeling so good. Saturday morning I woke up with a fever, headache and just a general yucky feeling. I called my aunt to come get Benjamin so that he would not get Saturday night I was a mess -- feeling very bad. Sunday morning I woke up, got undressed to take a shower hoping it would make me feel a little better, and guess what I saw?! Little red spots...EVERYWHERE!! I went to our family doctor (who is a friend and would see me on a Sunday), and he took one look and said, "It is definitely need to call your OB and go see a dermatologist". At this point I am an emotional mess...I miss my baby boy (who I only intended on sending away for a day or so), and I am VERY worried about baby Mary Elizabeth. Long story short (and 4 dermatologists later), I have chicken pox!!! How I got it is still a mystery. I have been quarantined for days now, because it is very contagious...and I may be losing my mind with loneliness, horrible red spots and missing my sweet baby (who I have not seen in 4 days!!!). Seth came home a day early (on his birthday) to care for me yesterday. It has been nice to finally have someone here with me, but I hate that his 30th birthday has turned out this way. Needless to say, I am hoping for an end to this week.


  1. Oh NO! (I thought you had a pretty bad week a few weeks ago) But this takes the cake!!! I'll be praying for you and sweet Mary Elizabeth. Please call if there is anything I can help out with! Get better soon! (like now!)

  2. Rotten, scary and oh so sad. Prayers your way, sweet Sarah. Gianna's been talking about Mary Elizabeth all day. I'm going to say it's her form of prayer. Sending you many prayers.

  3. Sarah, I am so sorry to hear about this. It is never any fun to be sick and to have to be away from your baby makes it so much worse. I'll be praying that you heal quickly and you get to reunite with your little one very soon!
