First of all... Thank you all for your prayers and kind words while I have been down with whatever this is... Blake left off with us sleeping and trying to rest ALL day Monday. It was so true. I didn't move from the bed basically all day! He was such a good husband and made me Malt-O-Meal for breakfast in bed. He kept bringing me Benadryl and hot tea throughout the day. I got chicken noodle soup, crackers, and Sprite for lunch and Spaghetti and Meatballs for dinner. :) He is such a good guy. I am lucky to have such a precious & caring husband! I am getting a little claustrophobic in my little bat cave these days, I haven't gotten to leave the apartment since Sunday. Nope, I take that back, Blake made me go to the emergency clinic on Monday night, since it wasn't getting any better and I was still having trouble breathing. Blake made me go see a doctor, and if you know me at all, then you know I HATE going to doctors and hate taking medicine even more (I hate having to remember to take them and at the right time and all that mess)! lol. So he forced me to go and see the doctor and she was not happy that I put it off so long. She said my throat was so tight, she could barely get a toothpick between my tonsils. :( Not good! She is making me take 3 antibiotics and gave me an Epi Pen... SCARY! lol. It's kind of intimidating. Even though we still aren't sure what originally caused the allergic reaction, she is pretty sure that's what is was, none the less. She advised that I just take my antibiotics, rest a lot, and try to not expose myself to anything new for a few days. So fast forward a bit... yesterday I just felt groggy and weak form the medicine, but today I woke up and I think I am finally turning a corner! :) Yea! But still, I am getting kind of stir crazy and ready to be out in the world again... I am so used to a fast paced life-style that never slows down, so this is culture shock for me and makes me feel like I'm completely lazy! :( I keep getting told that if I don't rest and take care of myself it will never get better, so I am trying to trust them and follow my family and friends' advice. :) Anyways, today is Wednesday and I finally can swallow without feeling like there are 2 ping pong balls or golf balls in my throat. lol. So I think today is truly a new day and I am finally beating this... WAH-HOO! :)
We are the Jackson's... Blake and Robin Jackson. We got married May 12th of 2007, so we have been married for four years now! YEA! We met in college at Houston Baptist University where we traveled together in a vocal group and discovered our common passion for music and people! We now have the joy of working together at Community of Faith, a church where we are in full-time ministry, leading worship, hanging out with students, and praising God for the opportunity He has blessed us with to serve together! We were pregnant last Spring and lost our first baby (whom we called Baby Bean). We now have our second bundle of joy that blessed us with his presence May 15, 2011. We named him Nash Whittan Jackson. He is amazing and we could not be more excited to be his parents. Our family is growing and we thank God every day for the amazing things He continues to give us!
