Attention: The Plague has left the Building

Bethany hasn't thrown up or exploded out of her diaper in 24 hours, so I think we are safe to say that the Plague is on it's way out. So as long as no one else gets it, we should be out of quarantine by Friday afternoon.

Now we are just dealing with a cold... which I have contracted, unfortunately, seeing as I have gotten precious little sleep the last two weeks or more.

Yesterday Josiah and I took Mercy to Cincinnati for her follow up appointments. Everyone was pleased with her progress, and we have resumed the propranalol. We go back next week to up the dosage again... since her blood pressure went pretty low at the 2 mg / kg level, Dr. Adams is being pretty cautious. I am glad for that!!!

Mercy had appointments with both Eye doctors, and they were pleased also. She is no longer ignoring the bad eye as long as we have the contact in. We only have to patch the good eye two hours a day. So although that was a long day, all went well.

It was Josiah's birthday yesterday... (anyone know how in the world he is 12 already?), so we stopped at Hobby Lobby on the way home to spend his birthday money on model airplanes. Then we went out to dinner.

We left home at 4 in the morning, and returned at 10:30 at night. I was exhausted, and slept in until 9:30 this morning. I feel much, much better now. If only I could kick this cold!

Spring is here... the windows are open, and I am getting ready to get into the garden. Lovely!!!
