MEDICAL ALERT IN THE FLEWWELLING HOUSE!!

We all thought that the Flewwelling's might have had H1N1 two week ago....We were informed today...They did not...
Scott-Issac has become extremely ill as of yesterday. A fever that would not respond to medications. He began a cough that could not be controlled by Ventolin. Last night he was seen by a docotr at his clinic and he sent him off to the hospital right away. His O2 levels were low...90% thus his breathing belaboured. His fever when over 104, his heart rate way up 155.
He is unable to keep down his food, hurts all over....It was thus confirmed he had H1N1...Poor darling. This time the hospital has(shock)done a H1N1 swap.

We will be keeping Roxi in our hearts....as no doubt this darn virus will now make its rounds....being the mommy means she is in for a real bummpy ride.

Aunika is finally doing much better...and had started being her usually pleasent self. She needs to have blood work again on Wed...to see if her white cells have bounced back...they were too low! Another peice of exciting news is that Wed...Heidi and kristopher find out what they are having...BOY or Girl!! and as if this is not enough greatness for a humble Wed it is also Joe's 28th Birhtday!!!

Dad and I got a great package of gifts of to Daniel and Vicky....Hope they get them before the leave for egypt...Hope they have a great trip! Hey Dan when are you guys going to the sister wedding?

Love to everyone...Mother S

Intellectual or Idiot


Wow! What a load off. I just turned in a 40 page paper on Cognitive Neurology and its Implications for Curricular Development. I also had my tailor make me the little number you see above for Halloween ;) Sorry Mom and Dad... I just couldn't resist. Let us not forget joy and silliness of youth. It's good for us in every way.

Take care. I love and miss you all.

Fully Recovered

Greatings all
Roxann, Mark, Skee, Dassi; Daniel, Vicki; Joseph, Corinna, Caleb; Isaac, Becky; Heidi, Kris, Nonni and family friends all. I am now completely delivered of my first MLC. Quietness has returned to 12 Tozer. Sleep will come a little easier and remain tonight. This is Remembrance Day 2009, a day to remember. Mom sold the 2nd pup just before noon .... what a sales lady. With this piece of experience over we will now move to other thoughts.

We are now signed up with Global Home Exchange . com, so we'll be working on next summers travel arrangements to wherever.

Bye, Bye
Daddy

Dad's Illness

Hello Standfam:

It was about 2-3 months ago I came down with a serious case of mid-life-crisis. It all culminated 3 weeks ago when under serious duress, Mom gave consent to me having a pair of Beagles. After a week of cleanup and sanitizing floor to the quality required by Mom, getting out of bed at 1 - 2 am, getting dressed, bundling up, leashing 2 vibrant dogs and carrying them out for their early morning relief, I was beginning to have second thoughts. Add to this getting up at 5:30 to 6 am for another dog run, the second thought were becoming serious misgivings. Then of course there is the "tied down" aspect that makes you really think.

Now don't get things wrong. Mom was doing her share during the day. Doing training, walks and providing quality care, cleaning up mistakes on the floor, it was all becoming a little much.

There was some pleasant times; walks and watching them play.

Thankfully, my illness was short lived. Within a week I made an executive decision to swallow the bitter pill and admitted my need for dogs was premature. This was followed by a request to list my dogs on Kijiji FOR SALE. Mom sold Penny the first day.

With the current pain 1/2 gone, I'm awaiting the sale of dog #2 which will result in full recovery from my short period, mid-life crisis. The total cost for the error of my ways will run about $xxx. That includes 1 drive to Truro followed by a trip to Amherst the following week to exchange a defective dog. Add the food, collars, leashes, dog bones, a brush and cleaning supplies, I'll consider my losses minimal.

So, that's my story. My next MLC will take place in a year or two, perhaps. I have this urge to have a pig, 3-4 chickens, a dog, a cat or 2, and goodness knows what else. Maybe a goat or 2.

Special love too my wonderful family, complete with the recent and not so recent additions. WOW, God has bless me above my fellows. Mom and I have 14 and one in the oven. We'll have 15 by April.

May my God Bless You All.
