And just to make things more interesting, our Expedition got hopelessly stuck in the mud on our way to the clinic, and Uncle Danny had to pull us out!  What an adventure.  They weren’t able to remove the jewel at the clinic, so we spent the next afternoon at the hospital ER.  Merry Christmas from Eliza!  We received excellent care at the ER, for which we were very grateful.

Q:  Today was tough because:____________

A:  The kids didn’t sleep well last night, so I’m back to my old tired self.  Eliza is entering the stage were she doesn’t want to sleep in her room alone because of monsters.  She either wakes up screaming for me, or she just matter-of-factly climbs in our bed.  And Jed woke up screaming for me also, just to join in the fun.  Sheesh!  Anyone have any tips for dealing with monsters?
