I hope everyone has had a good day today. I haven't heard anymore from my cousin about Scooby. I hope to hear something soon. Thank you for all the prayers going up for him. He is such a good doggie. He's so lovable and friendly. When my cousin comes over, Scooby sits right near me so I can pet him and give him hugs. He's all white and fluffy and so darn adorable. I will let you know when I hear something.
Here in Philadelphia today, it was like a sauna. The air was so thick, I had a hard time breathing outside. Humidity was very high, and the burn index span was 9 minutes. Jim took the van to work today, but Emma came over and picked us up. Rebecca wanted to go play in the pool Emma bought the kids. So, when we got to Emma's we caked on the sunscreen 55 and out to the pool Marissa and Rebecca went. They had a great time, splashing in the water, dumping buckets of water over each others head, lol. I took a few pics of them in the pool.
You won't believe this one. Remember Daniel and is chicken pox? Well, today he broke out in more bubbles. When Dan got home at 5pm, the bubbles had spread up Daniels back onto his head, and he was so fussy saying Itchy Mommy. Dan says ok, he ain't taking no chances, so off to Philadelphia Childrens Hospital they go. First doctor says, it's chicken pox. Dan says it's been going on for 2 weeks, it can't be chicken pox. He gets another doctor, that doctor says it's either a heat rash or measles. By this time Dan is really getting mad, and says I want a doctor with alot more experience to look at my son. They call in a female doctor, who has 12 years experience working with children. She looks at Daniel, reaches into her pocket pulls out a magnifying glass with a blue light on it, looks closely at Daniels bubbles and says, It's not a heat rash, it's not chicken pox and it's not measles. She asked where Daniel slept at night. Emma told her in his crib. She asked howold the mattress was. Emma said 2 years old. She asked if the mattress was ripped. Emma says yes, there's 2 small rips in center of it, but she has one of those padded mattress covers for cribs on it. The doctor said, Get rid of the mattress and buy a new one, and do not use the mattress pad covers anymore. And this is why.
The cotton inside the mattress is made from sheeps wool. Sheeps have fleas, lice, and all other kinds of insects crawling around in their wool. They companies making the mattresses take steps to clean the wool, but there's no way they can get everything. So, when these crib mattresses are made and stuffed with this sheeps wool, they crawl around and breed in the mattress. And when it is torn they escape. The things escaping are called Bed Bugs, and are known to bite human flesh, leaving a fluid in the skin causing it to rise and itch. She gave Emma a prescription for an oral liquid for Daniel to take every six hours for the next week. Their going to go buy Daniel a new mattress and a plastic crib mattress cover just to make sure he doesn't get bitten anymore later on. I told Emma she needs a new pediatrician. Saying Daniel had chicken pox and he didn't, and making me stay away from my grandchildren for almost 2 weeks, thinking I could catch chicken pox or Rebecca. I'd like to slap the doctor. When I went to Emmas today, Daniel was all over me. Kissing me and hugging me, rubbing my arms saying wuv u mommom, and wanting me to hold him. He missed his mommom. And Rebecca and Marissa missed playing together. Here's a couple pics of Daniel I took today. If you look closely on his chin you can see the vanilla cake I fed him today, heehee.
Yep, he's got my keys and cellphone again. I can always make him laugh and smile by handing over those 2 items. He loves those pajamas he's wearing. I bought them for him and he won't take them off. Emma tried to dress him this morning and he yelled, Noooooooo, ON. He wanted to keep them on, lol. So she left them on him. He sits down on floor grabs his sandals and puts them on too. And guess what? He put his sandals on the right feet. Marissa and Rebecca still can't do that most times, lol.
Well, tonight on HBO, I was watching a special on the race horse BARBARO. Rebecca loves that horse. She even has a stuffed animal of Barbaro. Well, my 5yr old child sat in the chair and literally cried her eyes out watching the story that lead up to Barbaro being put down. I tried to change the channel, she wouldn't let me. She just sat there crying, saying poor Barbaro. And she made me promise I would look on the internet and find pictures of Barbaro and print them out for her. I kept my promise. I found 4 very nice pics for her. She doesn't get this horse loving from Jim and I. The horse lover in the family is my sister Lucy. Guess what Lucy? Rebecca takes after you in that department, lol. The one pic I found, I am sending it away and having it made into a poster for her for her birthday in 3 months. Wow, in 3 months my baby is going to be 6 years old. I have to plan her party. And plan the baby shower for Emma too.
Well, guess that is about it. I have 99 emails to read. I won't get to all of them tonight, but I'll get to a few. I'm a little tired tonight, I got up at 5:30 again this morning, and this heat outdoors got to me today. My air conditioners are on, so it's cool in here, but outdoors today watching the girls took it's toll on me. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Oh and before I forget, a very special thank you goes out to Lisa Jo for the lovely birthday card I received in the mail today. LJ, thank you so much, I love it. It was so kind and thoughtful of you to remember me for my birthday. I love ya girlfriend. XOXOXO
Love to you all.......................................
