Sick Days... for lots of game playing!
For once in my life, I actually
thought I was going to WiN 
in a matching game against Sweet Girl.  
BUT, it didn't happen!!!  ;(
Sick Days also call for...
TENTS in the living room!!!!!!!!!!
...and indoor football games.
(He literally played football in my room
for 45 minutes ~ running, tackling,
catching the ball, scoring, etc!!!)
Then a fashion show!!!!!!!!!!;)
But mostly sick days with this
girl mean A LOT of snuggling!!!!!!!
This sweet thing is a CUDDLE BUG...
even when she's not sick! 
Sweetest little girl in the world(:
Feeling better, but still had to make
a trip to Dr. G's...strep it was!  :(
That just meant another day of game playing!  
Cutest little Banker, EVER.
Almost all better called
for a USwirl trip!!!!
The day Hadlee went back to school,
sweet Jersi Girl gave her this card.
What a sweet, sweet friend!!!!!!!!!!
Jersi Girl did this on her own
and it brought tears to my eyes.
So thankful they have each other!!!
Unfortunately a whole week later,
Walker came home from school
burning up with fever:(
He left that morning feeling fine,
but he said during SECOND period
he started feeling bad.  He never
told anyone although several friends
and teachers asked if he was okay.
When I got to him, he had 103 fever:(
He had an important play off football
game the next day and that's why
he didn't say anything about being
sick.  He thought if he made it
through the day that he could still play
in his game the next day. 
He thought wrong:(
Last minute I texted our doctor
and he let me run Walker up to his
office for a flu and strep test
(after hours when his own son was
about to play in a real play off game...
God bless our kind doctor!!!).
Negative on both, but our doctor
highly suspected it was still flu -
just too early to test positive.
This was a heart breaker for Walker.
Lots of tears were shed over
not being able to play in his game.
Took a lot of pep talks and his team
rallying for him and telling him
they'd win the game for him.
And they did!!!!!!!!
Poor Guy pretty much spent the rest
of the weekend playing football
on his iTouch and watching movies
with Mama ~ which I loved(:
People who have sick children
or disabilities or illnesses themselves
are never too far from my mind,
but especially when my own are sick.
It is SO hard seeing your children
hurt or be sad.  I can't imagine
it what it's like for those that it never
lets up.  All I can do is keep them
close in my prayers and pray that
I never know that feeling. 
It can happen in an instant though.
