oh man! Being THAT sick is never fun! I will definitely keep you in prayer today. What a beautiful perspective you have though for being so sick. I pray you get better SOON!

I've been sick for a week, too, so I know your pain (well, some...nothing worse than a virus here). I hope you get better soon.

Number of people praying for you to get better just keeps climbing. You poor baby. God blesses you with helpers. Those breast infection really are awful but to have pneumonia on top of it. All our love and your speedy recovery.
