Thank you everyone - so good to share great news!

Linda - you mean you guys didnt have enough fun selling popcorn? :D

AND that the wind wont be blowing either - the other day, I thought our railings were going to blow off, the school flagpole snapped and I tried to walk my dog (nature calls) and she was getting buffeted around.

I only have to camp one night, they have someone out there for tonight and after I drop off stuff for our church tea and bazaar - I am grabbing my bedroll and heading out.

Sandy :)

Ha Ha. We only did one block. Luckily the people at my and my husband's office are pigs. Family, too. The thing that bugged me about popcorn is the guy made it sound like it was mandatory to go door to door and it turns out it's optional.

I remember the first bottle drive. We were thinking What! He's been a Beaver for a day and he has a bottle drive? :blink:

Ty has hockey tomorrow morning, but I'd rather not risk the weather in January or March, so I'll be out there sorting by myself until he shows up to help.

Holy cow! That wind! Any damage down there? We were okay.

we had some damage to eavestrough, other houses had shingles blown off, one tree toppled into a garage. We had semis everywhere parked in town.. at least 5 were in the ditch to the west and south of us... so when truckers got here - they stopped!

They always push the door to door cause it increases sales = more money to the big guys. We did pretty good here - we only have 5 beavers, 2 cubs and 7 scouts... we sold close to $9,000 in popcorn!!

Sansy, that's great news!!! Hope the camping goes well.

Well folks, I'm going to be rather inactive for the next month or so. I am off on a course that I need for my career advancement, and will be limited in my internet use for a while.

I want to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving, and to wish you all the warmest start to your HUGE holiday seasons.

Talk to you all as soon as I can,

Ryan

Good to see you Ryan, although briefly. I've been wondering if you were still with us.

We'll be here when you can return. :)

It's good to be home.

Its nice to be here in Rachelville. I have been unable to get to the site becasue I had an old version of explorer which kept telling me - page is unavailable. Fixed it so now I can see I have 61 pages to sift thru!

My mother in Law passed away last week and we had the funeral 2 days ago. Very hard on kids as this grandma lived close by and adored the kids and spoiled them as Grandmas are supposed to do. She was in ICU for 5 weeks when they decided to discontunue life support. She died of complications related to heart meds. Apparently a drug called Amniodarone can cause lung scarring.

And just because life is never dull, Kathryn has bilirubin and protein in her urine, GP here did basic liver function tests and said ' Oh there all fine. That was Dec 28/06. I asked for a referral to pediatrician and still waiting, so called and asked them to check on status of referral.

I had asked that autoimmune hepatitis be ruled out and he (the doc) gave me "the look" and said:" well those tests are very expensive". Yeah okay, so refer me please to someone who deals with chidlren who have multiple immune mediated illnesses and then we'll see. I lalso know that bilirubin in the urine is the earliest sign of a problem in the liver (a problem with red blood cells has been ruled out).

SIGH....................

and THEN at the funeral, at least 3 relatives on my husband's side of the family all assure me that the children will "outgrow" celiac..... because THEY did! So I said bluntly - you dont outgrow celiac, you can still have ongoing damage but no outward symptoms. I ended it like that cause a funeral is no place for the debate - they are all adults, I have enought to deal with..

I really do wish Rachelville existed in a physical form and I could move there.

Oh boy Sandy - you have had alot to deal with! :(

I'm really sorry for your loss.

Hope you get some answers for Kathryn - gosh it's alway's something to worry about with kids isn't it? <_<

..and as for the relatives who've 'outgrown' celiac disease....*sigh*...well you can only try and correct them! :blink:

Yes..in Rachelville you would not have to deal with such people!! :lol:

Sandy,

I'm sorry about the loss of your MIL. That's got to be tough dealing with that on top of the "outgrow celiac" and Kathryn.

I hope you can get in to see the ped. soon and get some testing to get things ruled in or out.

HUGS.

Sandy,

My thoughts and prayers to you and you family. It is never easy when things seem to all pile up at once like that.

I hope you find some answers for Kathryn quickly! :)

If Rachelville existed in a real way, I think we would ALL benefit from a move.

Please keep us posted.
