I've been sick.
A lot sick.
My doctors and my mommy are taking care of me so that I can stay out of the hospital.
My daddy has been out of town and last night Mommy told me we could have a slumber party in her bed.
Mommy says sleeping in the rocking chair is getting kind of old, and she thought we would like her bed better.
She was right!
Whenever I woke up coughing or crying my mommy was right there to snuggle me and I really liked that.
I haven't been sleeping very well and mommy said I was exhausted.
I think Mommy is exhausted too because whenever I look at her she has her eyes closed.
My doctor tested me for strep throat yesterday because my throat is so red, but Mommy said it was red just because I've been crying and screaming so much.
My throat really really hurts, but there isn't anything Mommy can do to help it because I won't put anything in my mouth.
Mommy has tried to squirt water in my mouth with a syringe but I get mad at her and hit the syringe away.
Last night I heard Mommy pray to Heavenly Father and ask Him to help my throat feel better.
Mommy was crying a little bit because she felt so helpless.
After Mommy finished praying I stopped crying and looked up at Mommy and smiled.
I even got off of the couch and played with my toys for a little while.
I didn't cry for a long time because my throat felt better.
Mommy said it was a tender mercy but Grandma said it was a miracle.
I didn't say anything but I knew that if Mommy prayed, Heavenly Father would help me.
Mommy says I'm missing a small piece of one of my chromosomes, and that is why I get sick a lot.
She says it's harder for me to get better when I'm sick for the same reason.
Mommy says that my missing chromosome is the reason my tummy gets so upset sometimes, and is the reason for my broken heart.
Sometimes my mommy gets really sad about that missing chromosome, because not having it makes my life kind of hard.
But then Mommy reminds us that it also makes my life really special.
Mommy says I have lots of people who love me and who pray for me.
And I have an extra special heart filled with love and purity.
Mommy says that when people are around me they feel peace.
She says it's because I'm filled with extra light from heaven.
Mommy says that Heavenly Father loves me a lot, and He will always be there to help me.
Mommy doesn't have to tell me that part, because it's the one thing I know more than anything.
He's always been there - when I'm sick or scared, or when I'm going in for another surgery.
I know Mommy can't see Him, and I know a lot of people don't even believe in Him, but World, I know that my Heavenly Father is real and that He loves me, and that's way more important than some silly missing chromosome.
I think I need to take another nap now.
Thanks for checking up on me World.
