Asthmatically speaking...

Cass is back on the nebulizer. It's been four years since she's needed it, but her asthma is back. I wonder if it was the corn maze? Also, strep throat and ear infections. She lies in bed, coughing and coughing. Even after three days on the nebulizer and the antibiotic. I cannot listen to it, I know there's nothing I can do to help her. It really doesn't seem to bother her, though. I don't know if she'll make it to school, tomorrow....

The medicine in the nebulizer acts like a amphetemine. It won't let her sleep. She is laying there, tossing and turning and coughing.
The last time we were at the Dr., Cass measured 5'6", and 145lbs. That was 10 months ago. On Friday, my twelve year-old baby is 5'10" tall and weighs 165lbs. That's right. She's 12. Soon, she will be taller than I am. She wears a size 12 shoe. Do you know how hard it is for a 12 year-old to wear a 12 shoe? All the "good" shoes are in size 6 or 8. Or, they have a three inch heel, making her over 6' tall!
Tomorrow, whether she goes to school or not, I am working in the yard. I will plant the rest of those bulbs and mow the back.
Garden joke:
Two older ladies were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress.

One leaned over and said, "Life is so boring. We never have any fun anymore. For $5.00 I'd take my clothes off right now and streak through that stupid flower show!"
"You're on!" said the other old lady, holding up a $5.00 bill.

As fast as she could, the first little old lady fumbled her way out of her clothes and, completely naked, streaked through the front door of the flower show.

Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall, followed by loud applause. The naked lady burst out through the door surrounded by a cheering crowd.

"What happened?" asked her waiting friend.
"Why, I won first prize for Best Dried Arrangement."

I sure have found some wonderful folks, thru blogging. My newest favorite is Carol's. She is blogging her grandmother's diary. Every day, she posts the entry of her grandmother's diary.

It's facinating to read about her problems getting her youngest to sleep, and how the other kids dirty up the house....Hmmm...Here I am, 81 years later, with the same problems!!
