Tyler took Alice to Primary Children's yesterday to have some testing done, such as a general viral panel and cultures for strep. She has been complaining that her throat hurts. Alice is already on an antibiotic that is treatment for strep, therefore, if she does indeed have strep it would mean that she needs an adjustment in her medications, which may become complicated. She has been very tired with nausea and diarrhea for several days. We should hear soon what is or isn't discovered from the testing.
Natalie seems to have improved over night. Still tired, but the cough has improved and she has been without fevers for three days. Yeah!
Blair is feeling great and back to school.
The rest of the family is experiencing a syndrome called Partial Zombie. We keep saying we need to go to bed sooner, but it's easier to say than to do. Morning still comes bright and early, regardless of how sleepless the night may be. Morning is a beautiful time of day, even more so when it is greeted with a full tank of gas.
We consider a good nights rest - a night in which we have no recollection of it. :)
Also I rounded up some more pictures of Festival. Many people have asked if I had more pictures. Thank you to all for your generous compliments of the tree...and thank you to those who helped make it and those who admired it, and especially to that person who purchased it. :) We don't know who that is...but thank you.
I wish now I had taken of pictures of each individual ornament and the garland. It's hard to see in pictures the detail and even harder to see what it all is.
