Dear John and Sickness

I finished the book Dear John by Nicholas Sparks in one day. I have been trying to get to it for probably a week or two, but never had time. Jackson had the stomach virus on Thursday and Friday. I sure didn't want to watch cartoons for the 2nd day in a row, so on Friday I started reading. OH MY! Such a good book, although I would have ended it different. I was also proud that I read a whole book in one day. I haven't had the time to do that in soooooo long. On the note of sickness, thankfully, no one else got Jackson's illness, but on yesterday Chris became ill. He slept all day, his legs hurting, his head hurting, and he couldn't even keep his head up. He took 3 baths yesterday trying to make himself feel better. I talked to my mom who is a nurse, and with the mosquitos being so bad, she suggested it might be West Nile Virus. I was freaking! He developed a fever in the night and I kept waking him up from touching his head to check. He went to the doc today who stated that he had a kidney infection and a viral infection from a tick bite! Check yourselves everyday if you have ticks like we do here! He had been cleaning up a trail around their deer camp on Saturday and I guess that is when it happened. Hopefully, in a few days, things will be back to normal in the Perry house!

OH MY GOSH! If he had a kidney infection like me that is the worst thing in the world to get! I'm glad you got to read a book - you still should try twilight I'm telling you - it is soo good if you give it a chance.

Hey so sorry to hear about all ya'lls sickness. Keep us updated on Chris. I know a guy who caught something "rabit fever" from a tick bite and he got really sick and ended up passing away so yeah watch out for those things. And tell Chris to watch out if he doesn't get better in the next day or gets worse take him to the doc or er. Don't get scared but just keep an eye out I'm sure it will be fine. You just don't think about anything, but like lime diease with that stuff and it could be so much more or nothing at all.

I guess I will have to read that book next. After reading the twilight series I am getting reading withdrawls. I am so sorry to hear about your husband getting so sick. That is really scary. I hope you all get better soon.
