Hopefully, you have all had a great Christmas holiday. Our Christmas was very blessed, but 2015 roared in with tough challenges. I woke up New Year’s Day with a terrible virus that we are thinking might actually be genuine flu, and over the next 24-48 hours, most of our family followed. At the moment, fifteen Rosenows are sick, and only five are still going strong. Scott is the only adult still standing, so he’s been trying to care for everyone. This has been even harder because Erin is still completely dependent on help for everything.
We’ve been so blessed by friends who have tried to help without being exposed to this plague. A neighbor has run errands for us to keep us stocked with necessary foodstuffs and medicines, someone left homemade soup on our doorstep, and our dear friends Mick and Betty continue doing laundry for us at least once a week. I don’t know how we could be getting through each day without all of the help God has sent to us through these angels.
We have a number of appointments this week that we will have to rescheduled, and that’s a disappointment. We don’t like to move appointments out to other weeks because those weeks will have their own appointments. 😖 But . . . one step at a time.
Happy New Year, and more later when we come out on the other side of this.
Kathy – for all of us.
