Important PSA and Prayer Request

aka Today's Drama. Never a dull moment. :)

Public Service Announcement: Just wanted to remind everyone the importance of having a medical release form when your child under the age of 18 travels anywhere that's too long of a drive for you to get to them easily.

We used this form, but in addition to everything on here, it's also important to know or have easy access to the child's SS#, if they are up to date on immunizations,  as well a the employer, employer's address, SS#, and DOB of the person the insurance is under. And they may require to see of have a copy or a faxed copy of both sides of the insurance card if it can't be provided (yes even if you have the number).

How do I know this, and why do I want to remind you of it?? Because, yes I needed to know all this today to go to the doctor. I was doing ok yesterday. This morning I went down hill, and developed a fever.

After conferring with my mom, our doc, and Stephanie (kids mom), it was decided that I needed to go in. After getting childcare for the other kids figured out so I could leave, and sitting in the waiting room with Grandma for WAY to long trying to figure out insurance stuff, I have a diagnosis of upper respiratory bronchitis. Blah.

A sweet friend of theirs named Rachel was able to come over this afternoon, and I was able to sleep for a couple hours. She's coming back tomorrow too. Sooo thankful for her! I also got a steroid shot, and am on antibiotics. Should be on the mend soon!

And then there's Zhen. I kept him home today as he had a fever. His school called today and said that his helper tested positive for influenza B. So he has been exposed. Great huh?

Prayers would greatly be appreciated for all of us here. Thank you!

On a lighter note, anyone have any creative ideas for something short we could have put as relationship to the child for Grandma. Seriously. Her relationship to me is COMPLICATED! LOL We ended up just putting guardian. :)


  1. Oh, Sarah, so sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Sounds like you have a great support network there. Praying you and the rest of the family are better soon.

  2. Yikes! I hope that you feel better soon.

  3. Ouch! so sorry! Hope you fell better soon!
