A note from the writers

Blogger seems to be having some trouble with its videos. They've been uploaded correctly and will run sometimes. If you can't see them now, come back another time and try again. It's totally a game of chance to get them to run. If anyone out there has a fix, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

Ava's caught the daycare bug and came down with RSV this week.  Kind of a bummer.  Started as a cold, but she was sent home from daycare yesterday with a fever.  Matt took her to the doc (I was totally expecting ear infection) and came back home with a nebulizer and a grocery bag full of meds.  This momma's heart was just a little bit broken seeing my kid with any sort of breathing machine.

Matt's recently become responsible for dealing with all future major illnesses.

It's not terribly serious, but it could be so it's treated fairly aggressively.  We're doing four nebulizer treatments a day for the next two weeks.  Really wishing we'd trained her to watch tv before this.  She did great the first few sessions, but now it's boring and she's fighting it a bit.

Anyway, we'll stay home with her until Monday morning, then it's back to school.  Let's hope those other kids leave their germs at home, too!
