Kathryn, my second in command (lol), is on the couch.
Since the first day that I realized Joel was sick and moved his bed to the living room so I could better take care of him, Kathryn has slept on the couch beside him. She's done so in order to watch over him... giving me the chance to sleep in my own bed and stay rested. What a blessing! Even when she got feverish she didn't leave his side. Matthew, my eldest, has gotten up now and is beginning to make strawberry pancakes. Soon the smell will spread through the whole house waking all the sleepy heads from their beds then they'll start calling out dibs on who gets the next pancake.
