Practical Tips for Stay at Home Time

Some great news. Some analysis. A few ideas for staying at home with children.

I’ve been specifically informed/asked to talk about ibuprofen for Covid-19. (Well, actually was I informed like this was vital news that we would need unless we were all going to die and I was responsible to get it out. Okay folks, you need to calm down.) So here is as far as I know, not being a doctor, just a mother. Well, generally the rule of thumb is that we are using acetaminophen (Tylenol) for fever in children. For general pain for adults, Ibuprofen works. There has been some discussion about not using Ibuprofen in cases of Covid-19, but of course there has never been any studies on this. Ask your doctor. I think he or she will talk to you similarly, in similarly calm terms.

Our heart do go out to all those who are sick and all those who care for them. We especially pray for those frontline medical people who are working long hours in cities where there really is an overage of cases. We rejoice in the news about the high rate of recovery. We hope that this will be a wake-up call that will improve our systems. What satan meant for evil, God meant for good.

We pray for repentance for our nation and revival for our church. We stir ourselves up to do the important things, our God assignments. We look to your youth for great new contributions. You, mom, are a big part of that. Thanks.
