My shoulders need a rest...**Updated 7/3**

I know they say that G-d never gives you more than you can handle but I am beginning to think that the powers that be think I am waaay stronger than I really am.

Above and beyond all of the challenges that we are facing on the home front these days is the fact that my wonderful husband is very sick and has been feeling this way for almost two weeks. The Nurse Practitioner at his doctors office says that it is a virus that has to run it's course but let me tell you it is one nasty bug. We are waiting on the blood work to some back to help shed some light on what is going on and when he may feel better but in the meantime...I am VERY worried about him.

As stressful as the rest of life is lately with the many worries brought about by the horrible state of the economy; it all pales in comparison to the fact that my love is so sick.

I hope to have better news to report soon but in the meantime positive thoughts and prayers are always appreciated.

Thanks so much!

UPDATE - Marc's condition worsened today and the Doctor's office was closed for the holiday so I brought him to the ER. He has been admitted to the hospital. The virus was what brought us to the hospital but what kept him there was a significant heart valve issue and the threat of an infection called endocarditis. I am pretty much reeling right now with this newest revelation. Marc is my rock and my soul mate and I cannot believe that this is happening. I will keep you updated. Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers.

Lori,
I'm so sorry to hear that Marc is not doing well. It is bad enough that you just went thru a recent scare with Katie but now to have to go thru that with Marc is downright scary. Please try to take care of yourself so that all of this stress doesn't bring you down with some sort of bug as well. Please keep up posted. I'm sending positive thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

Hugs,
Judy
