Turning the corner

Far Guy has finally turned the corner, he is feeling a bit better.  He is still coughing and wheezing but can breathe easier.  He was in the hospital last week. Respiratory distress and Acute Bronchitis and most likely a nasty virus.  He has a long way to go for a complete recovery, it will take time and patience.

I am feeling better also ...just real tired.  That was one wicked virus.  Our youngest daughter Jen made many trips here to check on us and make sure we had what we needed.

Our winter weather has returned with a late April snowfall yesterday.

Just what we needed to feel all "springy."

My main objective is to take care of Far Guy and get him back to reasonably good health.  I will write the blog when I can...no promises.

  2. I am glad that Jen can come to check and bring in things. I see Minnesota got hit again with snow. The weather has caused a really tough year. Always in my prayers. Stay warm and inside.

  6. I had been thinking of you guys daily and wondering how you were getting along. It is very tiring to try to take care of yourself and someone else. Hopefully the weather and your health cooperate and head to a nice spring.

  11. Keeping you in our prayers. That virus has arrived at my house, luckily not with as much force. Yesterday I was clad in baggy jeans, stretched out shirt and a cardigan with holes as my husband slept. We got an emergency call from my police officer son who had been called into work as he sat in the pediatricians office with a 4 yr old, a 3 yr old and a 6 month old who have it too. I had to wake my sleeping husband to help install car seats (whose bright idea was it over the weekend to vacuum the car?) and go sit for another hour waiting to see a doctor who can't give them anything for a virus? I was surprised they didn't call child services when they saw me.

    1. She lives 2 1/2 hours away so it takes the better part of her day to check on us
