A very dear friend and co-worker of mine, Lisa, is a single mom that is doing an awesome job raising her 2 kiddos. Her little one, Annalyssia, came down with the case of the flu last Thursday. She had a really long weekend with her because she felt so bad. I get a call from Lisa last night that her little one was running a 104.6 temp. She was able to get it down around 102 and got her back in to see the doctor this morning. She got the news that she didn't want to hear, pneumonia that would require a hospital stay for a few days. However, tonight she gets the news that it is possible that she has a pleural effusion (puss around her lungs) that would require a "vats procedure" which would include an ICU stay and a chest tube! She will have a chest X-Ray in the morning so please pray that it is not the pleural effusion, just regular pneumonia. This is a scary time for this 6 yr-old and her family!
Feb 24th:Zach 1st day of baseball practice. He was a little tired because the coaches at school ran them hard, then he had tutoring until 430 and then we had to be at practice by 530. He was a little tired and exhibiting his pre-teen attitude. Hopefully today will be better.
Caught Hayden doing his favorite thing after school to do, play games on the computer. He really likes www.eskimogames.com to find fun games to play. Did you notice the nice haircut?
