Sick and sad.

Mike told me about this news story early this morning when he got home from work. He fortunately did not have to respond to it, but he said when the call came in last night, he couldnt sleep at all after that. I dont blame him. I have been thinking about that family all day. The oldest child was the one who got away and was able to call for help and get the neighbor, a nurse, to come to the house. This particular neighborhood is only a few miles from us, and I know several families who live there. It is really disturbing.

I cannot fathom how a parent could kill their child with their own bare hands.


In other news, I am still sick with a bad cold that has turned into a hacking cough and isnt getting better. This has been going on for 5 days now. Ive been to 2 different doctors this week and theyve both told me its just a virus, there's nothing they can do for me. There's not much medication I can take while pregnant.

That is sooo sad :( I so do not get how anyone can do that. I remember when I was back in 7th grade, a classmate of mine was shot by her dad and then he committed suicide. He was going through a divorce with her mother. It was just the sickest thing, she was a really nice girl.

Ugh, just ugh. I can't even fathom hurting an older kid, let alone a smaller child like that. :(

Hope you feel better soon mama!
