I really shouldn't be laughing at this, but...

how can I not? I mean, I do have to deal with this child's 2-year-old stubbornness every day, but this is a cute one. Gotta love her determination. She said "I NOT sleep in sister's bed!" She was right. So, I threw a blanket on her and that's where she'll stay for the next few hours. Sweet dreams, Avery. I hope you wake up happy and not grumpy.

I don't think Shelby had a stye; or, maybe, she did. Either way, our Ped prescribed antibiotic ointment on Saturday and we kept up with that and warm compresses every so often. It then spread down her face a bit, and looked like pimple, but was gone this morning. I took her to the dr. anyway. And, Little Miss Onry (I mean, Avery ;-) went, too, b/c she has had what has looked like little mosquito bites, but then the next day they're red and raw. They have been coming on slowly, but now that we look back a few weeks ago she had a blister-like sore on her palm and one on her finger -duh! Impetigo. So, she is on an oral and topical antibiotic. Shelby does NOT have impetigo, but what, we don't know. We are to use antibiotic ointment on her eye still, another antibiotic ointment on her pimple-like things and then a steroidal cream on her skin near her nose that is really, really dry. She also has been referred to a dermatologist. Great, another specialist to add to the list. Sorry for such a sarcastic post, but it's just been one of those days. Later.

I can't get this off my mind

Shelby has what looks like a stye in her eye. But, that's how all this started last March. The picture below is some from the day (or day before) she was admitted. I don't know if I'll sleep much tonight. I keep waiting for her to come out from her room with a fever. Prayers for some peace, please.

Prayers for a friend please

I just found out that a friend I grew up with, Michelle Kovanda Iasparro, was diagnosed this week with Stage IV colorectal cancer. It has already spread to her liver. Please, please pray for her. She will be heading up to Mayo soon to meet with doctors there. She is just 1 year younger than me. Thank you.

Happy 2010!

Last night we celebrated New Year's at the church at an event put on by the Youth group and the UMW. Board games, food & fellowship were enjoyed by all. Here's our pictures. Happy New Year! Always praying that this year is better than 2009...
