Recovering from Illness

“Derek turned my office into a bat cave!”

He’s been fighting a cold this week. He started sleeping on the daybed with a vaporizer. My office was our nursery. It’s a small room and it doesn’t take long for the vaporizer to turn it into a sauna.

I removed my electronics but forgot the charger for my Chromebook. When I went to retrieve it, the room was completely dark – in the middle of the morning. He had hung a purple sheet over the curtains.

The garbage can was overflowing with Kleenex. (How could there be so much to blow out of his nose?)

Yesterday, I laid my hands on his chest and asked Jesus to heal him. He started feeling better. He moved to the couch to watch the Iowa Game. I stopped him!

I reminded him that germs covered his clothes. I instructed him to shower and wash all his bedding. If he sleeps in the same sheets, he will infect himself again.

He showered and spent the day washing sheets, pillows, comforters, and the blankets he used when on the couch. Today’s verse confirmed my instructions.

Leviticus 15:13, “When he who has a discharge is cleansed of his issue, then he shall count to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his body in running water, and shall be clean.” Modern English Version

Do you think I can get him to do laundry for the next 7 days? It’s worth a try!
