We are getting better

My kids are in recovery. Cody is not a "pink eye person". It ended up being just an eye cold??? Whatever that mean. Caitlyn was diagnosed with a sinus infection and is being treated for that. I am feeling good about my decision to stick to my instincts regarding her being sick after I found out some very scary news this morning. I took a call last Wednesday night about a four year old having convulsions. She had been sick with the flu. Her Grandma called 911 and got me. They lived way out in the middle of no where so I was on the phone with her for a good 15-20 minutes before the ambulance crew could arrive. They transported her and I assumed all would be fine, I never heard otherwise, until today. Apparently she died at the hospital. The flu!

Now on a happier note, this picture makes me smile. It was "T" week at Cody's daycare. So in honor of the letter "T" they had a teddy bear tea and were allowed to bring their favorite teddy bear to school. Cody came home so excited that his special bear won this award. That was two weeks ago and his bear is still wearing this little paper medal with pride. I tried to take it off for bedtime but Cody wouldn't let me. A little history or this "Most Loved Bear". Cody received this bear when he was just a couple of week old from my Aunt Sue. He has slept with it every night since.

I'm glad Caitlyn and Cody are feeling better. Good for you for trusting your instincts. I love the story about the most loved bear, that is so sweet.

Glad the kids are feeling better. The girls just got over being sick and then Suzie started up with another fever. No flu or ear infections, just a cold.

I heard about a little girl dying from the flu, not sure if its the one you mentioned. Scary stuff
