Wise Counsel

This weekend, while sitting outside, I suddenly, without warning became very nauseous due to the hyperemesis gravidarum and started to gag, retch and cough. I had been sitting back in my chair when it came upon me. I stayed still because I was afraid movement would push me over the edge and I'd lose my meager lunch. I planned to lean forward quickly if needed.

Caleb saw me sitting back in my chair struggling to not throw up. With bit of disgust in his voice, he offered "MOM! If you are going to throw up, throw up on the GROUND!"
