Christmas eve in the e.r.

I got woke up this morning at o dark 30, because Amber was sick. So it was to the ER Oh the joys of spending Christmas eve in the hospital.

It turns out that the doc is not sure if her infection is viral or bacterial. Amber is also dehydrated.He was going to wait for some cultures to come back. Then I mentioned that Amber will be leaving for Costa Rica on friday. So they gave her two shots and sent her home with some pain meds.

Right now Amber is sleeping in Rusty's bed. She even had to curl up with his blanket.

So here on sit on Christmas eve with a sick child sleeping in our bed. Back in the summer we had a 15 year old sleeping with us. I guess it is only fair that we now have a 17 year old sleeping with us.

Even with all my bitching, I know that we are going to have a great Christmas.

I know that we are going to have a great Christmas because right now our fellow Americans are fighting for our freedom.

Right now while we are preparing for Christmas their are service men and women wondering what their family back home is doing.

Right now their is a new dad who will miss his child's first Christmas.

Right now the middle east is under siege. Right now the cradle of civilization is in turmoil.

How sad to think that some countries know nothing but war.

Here are some video's of our troops. Please remember them this Christmas.

Did you see that item in the news about a soldier who plans  to adopt this Irqui orphan child.  I always trust you to remind us to think about the soldiers.  Having a son in the service for seven years sure made me aware of the soldier boys around the world.  I don't think I will ever forget them now and he wasn't even in battle. The thought of soldiers in battle every day as has been the case in Iraq can sear the soul to say nothing of what it is doing to them and their loved ones!  Many never to be the same again.  The least we at home can do is be aware of what is happening because of the policies of our country.  We owe it to them.  Gerry
