Wed Update on Thur Morning

Yesterday was another good day.  

About the only health item to note is that Rebekah continues to have problems with pain in the throat.  It starts by a small cough which is painful so she gets upset which makes her cough more and so on.  If we can’t calm her down it gets worse.  Some Tylenol, benadryl and morphine all help a bit but the morphine makes her constipated and then that hurts.  She is going through so much.

Yesterday we went up to Mt. Bachelor and played in the snow.  Girls in snowsuits, boots, mittens and crawling around (as much as bundled up Eskimos can crawl) on the snow drifts.  Rebekah loved it and Sarah was not at all amused and just wanted up in mommy and daddy’s arms.  We took some video and pictures that I hope to get up if I can find a moment.

In the afternoon and early evening we went to mommy’s aunt and uncle’s new garage (and house) in Prineville.  I say that because the garage is as big as the house and hides the house as you drive up.  Uncle Charlie says all the women in the neighborhood are mad at him and the husbands jealous.  I don’t remember specifics but the garage is something like 20 feet wide by 50 feet long and 16 feet high.  Sorry for the guy stuff.

Mommy’s cold has moved to her head and she was not doing well last night when got home and just wanted to go to bed.  I think she got to sleep through the night pretty well.

Today is off to the high desert museum with a babysitter to help which should be great and then dinner with some friends in Bend.  

More later if we get time.

Oh what fun! Playing in the snow. I'm so glad that at least one of the girls enjoyed it. *smile*
I remember the first time my youngest went out in the snow. My older son went running into and the youngest charged ahead to follow his big brother only to stop dead and nearly go heel over head in a tumble because of the way the snow was cold and wet *LOL*.
I hope and will pray that you continue to feel better, dear Rebekah's mom and that Rebekah will stop feeling those ouchies so much .. and that your little vacation away continues to bring you wonderful memories.

Hugs to all,
~Molly~

I'll pray that Frances gets over her cold quickly and that Rebekahs throat heals up quickly as well.
