This is my grandson, my daughter Kalissa’s newborn, who is in the hospital with meningitis. The good news, he’s doing better today.
Kalissa posted this on Facebook:
“As some of you may have read on mom’s blog, Anders is in the hospital with viral meningitis.
Anders is doing SO much better today:
So please, wash your hands as often as possible, stay home if you’re sick, don’t kiss the babies, and take newborn fevers seriously! That will be my motto for the next couple of months!”
That was all good to hear.
I went to Iowa City yesterday afternoon and picked up Craig. He took Carver and Gannon home so they could have a little normalcy and I could have a little break. I’ll have the boys late each night but we’re gonna try to have Craig pick them up and they’ll sleep at home. So far they are doing good about not acting up or missing Mom too much but I’m sure after a couple more days that will be hard on them too. So…as much normalcy as possible for them!!
Carver is in the school play so my grandma duties include picking him up after school from play practice. It’s all good. I’m excited to have another kiddo in plays. All of my kids were and I loved it. That is fun as that will keep him distracted over this next week.
Second update: On the dog that came to my house as a stray:
He found his owners…or rather his owners found him. Happily, the family decided to neuter him as long as he was at the vet anyway.
He was not dumped. It’s believed he followed a local farmer into town.
That story ended well.
I was contacted by the local rescue HEART Animal Rescue that I am working with. Four more dogs need to find a foster. I’m not fostering more right now. I have Kalissa’s dog while she is in the hospital. I never knew there was such a huge need for foster dog care.
Except that…all good news coming from my house tonight. What a blessing to be able to say that!! Thanks for the many kind words and prayers on Anders’s behalf…and that of our family. It is much appreciated!!
