Our little Drew was at the hospital Thursday for a stomach virus that left him dehydrated. Poor little man! He is on the mend, but he did SHARE with Naive and Mr. Naive. I spoke with them this evening and they are all starting to feel better except for extreme tiredness as a result of being so sick and not getting enough if any rest! Friday night she called and asked if I had any watermelon in the house....it was the only thing that sounded good to her. I told her I didn't but I would go to the store and get some and deliver it to her....I help when I can!

Our oldest son, Brian, came over for a visit on Saturday. He had his two boys with him, David (10)and Elijah (3). Normally Elijah sticks pretty close to his daddy while visiting but not this time. After several hours, Brian said they needed to head back to their house and Elijah immediately started crying and carrying on that he wanted to stay at 'Mema's house' and didn't want to go home. He ran to me and climbed up next to me and told me he wanted to stay. I held him for a few minuets and proceeded to tell him that if daddy said he had to go home then that is what he must do. I asked him if he wanted to go see his baby sister, Rebecca and his momma and he said NO. To make a long story short, he finally quit crying and decided he would go home this time.

On top of everything else going on with hubby, he had his yearly cardiac stress test done Thursday afternoon. He passed with flying colors and the cardiologist even changed some of his meds to generic ones to help keep our costs down. Yipee! Mine is scheduled for March 8th. Since I usually fail mine, please keep your fingers crossed and wish me luck!!!!

I'm glad the hubs passed his test. All flexible body parts are crossed for you, but you will be fine!

I like the name Elijah... it was one of the ones that we were considering for JellyBean.

Sick, ughhh! Seems like my little guy got over with flying colors, all he had was a fever, my husband the same. But I, I got the full fledge stomach bug! Wonderful me! Great to hear about your husband's test, my Grandmother went thru hers a few weeks ago, passed with flying colors. You should do fine, but I'll still keep my fingers crossed.

I can understand why Naive would want watermellon...the liquid. I'm sorry they had the stomach bug.
