The last week or so has not been easy. Although P is doing a little better, he is far from well. On Friday, after another week off university, he went to see our doctor. We are blessed with a great doctor who has treated us both for a few years now and has a good grasp on our situation so we usually trust her. Her diagnosis this time was exhaustion. P can’t get over his virus because his life is so busy. We’ve both made a concerted effort to cut back on our activities over the last year so there’s no option there. P does an amazing job juggling caring for me, his degree and a part time job, but sometimes even my superman needs to reach out for help. That’s where my strength lies. Although I’m still also struggling with the virus, I can organise a lot from my bed. We are lucky enough to have great friends and family to call on in our time of need.
The next couple of weeks will be an experiment in what happens when a carer gets sick. The most important thing for the both of us though is where we draw our strength from. Although it may sound cheesy, we know that we need to rely on God to bring us through something that is too big for us. The Bible says that God is strongest in our weakness. We are believing for supernatural strength and energy to get us through to P’s graduation.
P and I would really appreciate your prayers over this period.
