I’m Your Huckleberry

Just letting you all know that God is good! He’s kept me flu-free even to Day Six so I can care for my family. My husband needs your prayers–he succumbed last night and has the grand-daddy of all headaches accompanying the other symptoms. My crit partner, Rhonda, told me about putting two tennis balls in a tube sock, securing them with rubberbands between and at the open end and lying flat on your back with them at the very base of your skull. The balls need to be flush against the base points of your skull, one on each side at the top of your neck. So far, it’s giving dh some relief, and Rhonda says it works great for her migraines.

We’ve had some “hallucination scares” with dd age six when her fever got out of hand–both dh and I bawled and prayed her through them. She was seeing and hearing terrifying things that weren’t happening. I hope we never go through that again.

So, I won’t be blogging till we’re over this hump. Now, if you need foot or back rubs, long made-up stories, chicken soup, fresh drinks on the hour, or freezing cold washcloths for your headaches…

I’m your huckleberry!

  1. So sorry to hear that dh is now down with it! I’ll have to try the tennis ball trick on those pressure points when my boy is sick with a migraine next time. I’ve always wanted to learn what the pressure points did and what ones to use when. My sister did a lot with that and they helped A LOT! Still praying…

  2. Thanks, Leticia…dh went back to work today, oldest had a severe case of hives today which had me running to the doctor…she’s got viral pneumonia in both lungs on top of getting over the flu. Thankfully she’s getting better not worse…sheesh! What a loonnnggg 8 days! And this is only the half of it!
