Sickness Has Descended......

Unfortunately the happy Robertson home as been smitten with sickness. Randy came down with a terrible cold last Friday that put him out of commission for nearly 5 days. During that time it was passed to Grandma Nanny Milliren and Aunt Kathy who were here helping us get transitioned. Last night Lori got hit hard with the same thing and now Daddy is left to play Mr. Mom. This cold and flu is AWFUL!!!!!!!!!! Chills, sweats, fever, cough and running nose on top of serious body aches. Not a good combination for trying to get nursing down with a new baby and care for Little Bug. Randy is doing an AWESOME JOB!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to personally say THANK YOU to him for rising to the occasion and giving me some time to recoup and sleep. He has been caring for both children last night and today and he brings little Mackenzie Joy into me every time she needs a feeding. I am blessed beyond measure to have Randy here with me. Praise the Lord he is not out flying a trip. I don't know how I would do it. Please say extra prayers that our two little angels will not be stricken with the same thing. We appreciate all your comments and loving words of congratulations for Mackenzie. She is doing great and is getting more beautiful each day. We have pictures to post of Easter, but you'll understand the delay in getting them up. Little Bug is still trying to figure out what that high pitched cry is in the house, but generally, he is adjusting quite well. As any new parent bringing home baby #2 we worry that we're not giving Connor enough attention, but chances are he is definitely getting plenty of love!!!!

We covet your prayers for healing in our home!!!!
Lovebug Hugs,
Lori

What a relief to hear that you're just dealing with a big, old, ugly flu bug. Considering where you were a year ago at this time that is definitely a blessing. There's always something we can give God thanks for. He is a good God! What a sweet, precious girl to add to your beautiful family. Connor and Mackenzie are very fortunate to have such wonderful parents. To think that God had all this planned. He chose you! Blessings to you all and protection from the bug for the rest of the family.

Hoping it's short lived and asking God for a hedge of protection around your two little angels so they stay healthy. I will plan on coming next week to see my niece & nephew!!! Can't wait. Love to you all, Teresa
