Our Sunday

Our little Camers, my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter, is in the hospital with pneumonia tonight. Brock called to tell us as we walked in the door today after church.

So we now have Elora with us.

Elora has a cough and some laryngitis, so she has resorted to writing notes all day. I looked through her notebook of today and this is one of my favorites. She wrote this apparently early this morning:
(I will translate below.)
It reads:
"Is my tooth ready to be pulled out yet?
Mommy, is Grandma Honey awake yet?
"
(I'm impressed that she was thinking about me!)

As soon as she got here she did manage
to find enough voice to say to me,
"Mommy said I need a bath sometime today.
I have not had one since November."

Of course we know that is not true, should you wonder.

So she read herself a book after we got her tucked into bed
Brock, unfortunately lost all his post op nursing care when Erin left to take Camers to the hospital.

He's recovering well from his surgery I suppose but he is so frustrated that he can't be at the hospital with his wife and little girl! I tried to talk him into spending the night here with us, but no luck with that idea.

When it rains ..... Our prayers will certainly be front and center with Cammers. Elora is a crack up! Once again, the blessing of family in town rules! Love, Dad and Susan

Brock's family sure is having medical trials right now. How long will you have Elora? At least Elora seems to be a good patient :-)

I am so sorry about Cami. She will be in my prayers. I just love that little girl. Give her a big kiss for me.

I love Elora too. She is so funny and a very bright spot for everyone. She is lucky to have you and Dennis close by.

Send my best to Brock. Poor guy. I hope he gets feeling better soon.

Dylan was hospitalized with pneumonia at 18 months--"the sickest kid in the hospital," according to our doctor--and then twice more when he was 2. It was a scary time for us, but thank goodness for priesthood blessings and God's mercy. Then we discovered echinacea drops for children and Dylan has rarely been sick since then. I've already said a prayer for Brock and Erin's family--God bless them!

Jill said...

Thank you so much for the prayers and concern for Cami. This is the 2nd time Cami has had this. I think she is more prone to it because of her medical issues.

Mary, How scary when Dylan went through that! I love the echinacea for myself. I give it to Dennis too. He'll take anything.

Life gets so crazy sometimes. I wish them ALL well! As mom's we hate to see our family go through these crazy things, but it's life.

I remember I was in ER 3 times in one day. 1st Jasmine got her hand and arm pulled into a cement wheel spinning (professional manual pottery wheel) When we got back one of my son's had to be rushed to ER because his cousin hit the back of his head with a pick. Then later while I was at work; I got a phone call that Jacki was in ER. One of her uncles swung her by the arms and pulled her arms out the socket.

We live. But for BROCK: I FEEL his pain! He's a dad and he's a husband and he's recovering himself. We'll put their names in the Temple tomorrow! Love Ya'll.

Does Hailey know Elora is sleeping in her bed? I won't tell. Hailey drove home to Sacramento with Jason and Carol yesterday and was happy to leave. We had her for 3 weeks so it was fun.
