  • Weekend blogging break: 2 trips to the ER in less than 36 hours

    I’ve been to the ER twice in less than 36 hours, thanks to a bloody nose (kudos to the ER at Providence Tarzana Medical Center, which our pediatrician’s office recommended because they offer specialized pediatric emergency services). All is well now, but I am physically and mentally exhausted, and now on total and complete child-entertainment duty.

    I’ll be back Monday – have a great weekend!

    P.S. Can you believe it’s August???

      I'm glad the kids are OK. Maybe now you can get your much needed rest, or at least a couple of hours of uninterrupted sleep. There's nothing as good for the nerves are a late night/early morning ER trip. At least you found a goodo one!

      Hi Cathy,

      I am glad your kids are OK. I can't imagine the feeling of being at the ER with our kids. I am glad everyone is better.


    3. Sorry you're having a tough couple of days, Cathy! Hang in there. 🙂

    4. I hope everything improves. Get some much needed rest.

      sory to write to you like this, but i could not find the contact form. I really like your blog and i was wondering if you would maybe like a link exchange with my website . My site has many good articles and gets over 100.000 different visitors per month. I think we would both benefit out of this exchange alot. We would get higher position in search engines and many new visitors from each others economy sites.

      Well let me know on . I would really like a link exchange with your blog (i like it alot).

      Thank you in advance for your reply.


    7. Oh no!Hope everyone there is recovering from the (wrong kind) of excitement the past few days!

      There's a web site from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia that might help you as you take care of the kids: Tons of great advice.

      I hope things are looking up! Take care…
