Things are looking up!

Day 5 of E.W's illness. Back to clinic for follow-up and I am pleased to (guardedly) say that he's looking better! Temps are now "low-grade" (you know, vs. "core temperature of the center of the earth")...he really seems to feel his best when his fever is under control.

It's been "decided" that the source of this illness is some bug in his throat...not strep ('course not, that'd be too easy!), his white blood cell count was down, but his CRP (test for inflammation) was elevated slightly since, round two of antibiotics (once again, delivered via two shots in his thighs). Unfortunately for him, he knew what to expect this time around, so I think he tensed up his legs, as today's shots seemed to bother him much more than yesterday's.

I'm just very grateful that we've been able to "manage" him as an outpatient and have avoided the dreaded hospital stay! Still awaiting some culture results that may (or may not) change the course, but for now...I'm very happy with his progression! Thank you ladies for your concern!


  1. Awee poor little guy! Will they still possibly admit him for iv antibiotics? Sick kiddos are the worse, exspecially when they cant figure out whats wrong! Sorry he realized the shots were coming, I bet his little legs are sore ;(

    Please keep us posted when you have time!


  2. Sorry he's not feeling better yet! If you were next door, I'd bring ya'll some chicken soup :)
    Hope he gets to feeling better soon!

  3. Woot! Thanks for hopping by my blog! *grin*

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
