A good read. . .




I love Jodi Picoult books. She has suspense and normally questions ethics in her books, to some degree. This book does not disappoint. It is about a child born with a disease called OI, where her bones break all of the time and a mother's struggle to take care of and protect her child. While she is busy worrying about the fragile one, her older daughter is actually more fragile than the mother ever considers. Warning: This book may be a bit hard for some mom's to read.
********************
Buddy came down with bronchitis. He went to the doctor yesterday morning. Then in the night he threw up. I called the doctor on call, which is a story in itself. The school had just sent home signs of H1N1, which means I can worry all "flu and cold" season. Bronchitis was on the list of a complications from the flu. Super. The doctor thought that the one time throwing up probably was a side effect from the meds he is on. He has been laughing and playing all day and in general acting better than he did Friday morning prior to the meds. So, let's hope that is all it is. I'm pooped.

Kris, I hope Buddy doesn't have the swine flu. Maybe not if he's playing. Thanks for the book recommendation.

I love Jodi P's books! I haven't read that one yet, but I will save it for when I need a good cry.

Hope your Little Guy is feeling better! We are trying to ward off the flu around our house, especially since we have already been through 2 rounds of colds.

BTW-Love your swap mini quilt!

That sounds good, I'll look for it. I think we're dealing with swine flu here too, my oldest has had a horrible headache and his temp is up. Yes, the meds can cause that reaction. I will pray for Buddy!
