Wednesday!

Here it is Wednesday already!! I spent most of yesterday helping my special needs daughter,Nancy to get all of her Halloween card ready get in the mail over the weekend. She loves to send cards!! She signs her name and puts stickers on her cards and I address them. She has return address stickers from the American Heart Association. She is so proud of them!!

Lots of flu in our community. My friend called me on Monday to tell me that she had a lab appointment and the Doctors office called and said for her not to come that the office was full of people with the flu.
An 11 year old boy at our elementary school passed away over the weekend. They haven't said on the news if it was from the H1 N1 virus or not. It is so sad.When I get finished blogging I have to call the health dept in Jackson County. The lady I talked to last week said to call today and see if she knew where Nancy could get a shot. Nancy has had her regular flu shot but needs the H1 N1 shot. She told me what they are giving out now has a live virus and would be harmful to Nancy, that we should wait until the shot was available. Nancy has lupus and her immune system is weak. The Pulmonary Specialist said we should get her the shot.
We have enjoyed beautiful weather for a few days but I think they said this is all to change this evening with a cold front and storms moving our way.

that is so sad about the boy who died with the virus. We had a teen that passed away in a town not far from us. It is really getting bad. Hope all of you are keeping healthy.

It's sad to have such a youngster pass on....that is not natural. And I feel deeply for the family's loss.

I love Nancy who loves Halloween as much as I do...and you helping her makes it all the more fun for her, I'm sure.

It is so sad and scary all of the people who are dying from the H1N1. We are hoping to get the shot for Hailey too since she has asthma. It's scary too because it's new.

I love that Nancy sends out so many cards!
