COTTAGE KITCHEN

In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

A DAY WITH ELLIE

I watched Ellie on Monday to give her a day off from daycare. She has been sick almost from starting her first week there. My son and his wife, being first time parents, are rushing her off to the doctor every week. She has had some virus, a swollen wrist and a mild ear infection but has maintained a fever under 101 off and on the whole time. There were all types of tests done but nothing has been revealed. She is on her second dose of antibiotics and has now been put on a nebulizer.....I may be old school but I really think this is over kill. After they put the poor thing in a cast for a swollen wrist and then had to take it off a few days later because it was turning her fingers blue I think I would be more cautious about trusting the opinion of all these doctors. I know my son worries a great deal and I just hope the doctors are not trying to pacify him or run up the insurance for more money at the risk of my grandaughter. After going through all this with my husband parents who were sick as we cared for them in their final years I have become a little weary of doctors and not sure if their way is always the best way.
Ellie loves babies and books ...she tried to read and rock her baby in her daddys old chair

She has just started to walk
I was unable to capture a picture with her trying to carry her baby

The story was finished so out of the chair now...

First we drop the book on the floor and then we have to figure out how to hang on to the baby and get out of the chair


Grandma had a good time with her and I hope they figure out how to get her well soon. She seems very normal except for her runny nose and a small cough and she is breathing like she has a cold....maybe we need to go to the old school way of lots of vitamin c, vicks on the chest and feet at night, lots of liquids , vaporizer in her room and lots of love and tender care from grandma...opps..I mean her parents. Have a Great Weekend!

She is the prettiest little girl! Her hair is really growing now. I know you two had a good time together. So cute to see her clinging to the doll baby. Hope you have a nice weekend.

So, who do you want to trust...docs who learn from books or Gram's who learn OJT? I know who I trust! I firmly believe there's so much illness because people don't allow their bodies to build immunities. At the first sign of a sniffle, they run for antibiotics. I spoke with someone yesterday who said, "I've got a horrible head cold but started antibiotics and hope to feel better soon." YIKES! How is it people don't know they do NOT take antibiotics for a head cold???
I'm beginning to think O wants to kill off the older folks because it will be easier to enslave the younger ones when the older ones' wisdom has been done away.
Yeah, but like Winston Churchill said, "even a paranoid has real enemies." -grin-
