How to Live Series : Part 2 of 6

Here's part 2 of the new series. Are you guys enjoying these? Hopefully you all will be able to use it :) I liked this one, because how true it is! We should all take care of ourselves and our friends. :) Doesn't it make you feel good to do something nice for a friend (or anybody!). I sure think so.

So, today I'm heading up to Columbus (1 hr 20 min away) with my daughter for her echo cardiogram. They wanted to make sure that after her struggles with Strep, it didn't hurt her heart. She's on 2x daily antibiotics for a year to make sure that it clears up. For those of you who missed the eariler post, she got Post Strep Reactive Arthritis, and her hands and ankles swelled for about a week, then went away. She's feeling totally fine, and no side effects, which is a huge blessing :)

My husband has to work, but said that he'd take the oldest (10 yr old boy), who possibly can sit still and be good during them meetings. I'm sending him with the gameboy, so he should be set! The charger has been lost since Thanksgiving, and was found today, so it'll be fun for him.

All the others are coming with me. It ought to be an adventure. This time, I'm bringing the stroller. Last time, I had all 5 kids, no stroller, and 3 hours at the Children's hospital. Not my idea of a grand day. This time, I'll only have 4 kids (that is better, right?), the stroller, lots of food, and the portable DVD player with a new movie. Plus, I have suckers. And gum. I sure hope they do ok.

Our first appointment is at 11:15 with the echo cardiogram people, then the follow up appointment with the rhumetology (yeah, I know I'm butchering this word :) department at 2:30. Yeah, it's a big gap in time, but at least it's on the same day. I only have to drive to Columbus once. So, make sure you think good thoughts for me today!!!

So, now that you know what I'm doing today, go ahead and click on the image below to download, and leave some love if you like my work! Thanks you guys :)

Thanks for all your wonderful WA, and I hope everything checks out ok (and the kids behave!) during your hospital trip.
I don't know if you're taking requests, but I took a photo last week that is just begging to be on a layout alongside the quote "A man never stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child." If you've by some chance already done this one, could you please steer me towards it? Thanks!
