This & That

I've got both girls home with me today. Olivia has an appointment with an ENT. She's had 5 ear infections in the last 15 months, including an eardrum rupture about a month ago. In addition, she snores like a grandfather (my dad)! Growing up, our entire neighborhood knew when my dad had gone to bed! Anyway, they are going to do a hearing test and then take a look at her tonsils. I don't really want her to have to endure surgery at four years old.

Amelia lost her voice yesterday. She says her throat doesn't hurt...but for the last 3 nights, she's awakened with a terrible headache that she states makes her eyes hurt. I figure it's time to have them both looked at....again.

Tonight is my second weigh in for Weight Watchers! I'm exited! I think I've done relatively well! I'm determined, even more so than last week! I'm trying to keep focused. So far, so good. My immediate goal is to lose about 28-30 pounds by the end of April. I think I can do it. I need to exercise more! I will talk more about that later...because I read a book once that gave me an
excellent idea about how to get fit and grow closer to God at the same time! I'm re-reading this book right now and will write a post on it as soon as I can.

Have a great Thursday, everybody!!!

the name of that book is . . . ?
Hope the girls get better . . . and yes, ask about the furnace . . . just to be safe.
I endured five ear surgeries in my youth (tubes, bone reconstruction, adnoids, you name it). I still can't hear the best, but not bad enough for hearing aids yet. Uff da!

So, there is a possibility that carbon gas is causing her ear infections? You're kidding me! I had no idea! I will call our utility company and find out about this...thank you both...oh and Sarah, the book is called Prayer Walk.

Poor Olivia and Amelia! I will pray for them. Michaela went through the ear infection thing when she was younger, even antibiotics didn't work.
Great job on the weight loss!

Poor girls! I will be praying! I had tonsils and adenoids out at 24...I still snore!
