Last night, Krista woke up with intestinal troubles -- fortunately nothing that would require calling the doctor, but troubling nonetheless. Krista didn't want to succumb to the setback, so she moved forward with a last-minute collection of items for the used curriculum sale today. The sale is a big event, and hard for her to think of missing. So I took her and spent some time looking over the educational treasures. It didn't take too long, though, before her condition caught up with her and we had to leave.

The problems didn't stop with intestinal trouble. She developed a headache that kept her laid out on the couch for the rest of the day. My mother had to leave once we got home from the curriculum sale (thanks Mom for coming up again!), so I took the boys out to do errands for the afternoon. Krista was worse when we got back, and the sounds of people in the house drove her off to her room. The headache became a migraine but by the time she recognized it, it was too late to fend it off with her anti-migraine medicine. The poor thing just has to try to sleep it off now.

I am in pain and distress;
may your salvation, O God, protect me.
I will praise God's name in song
and glorify him with thanksgiving.
(Psalm 69:29-30)
