Happy Thanksgiving and $1.00 Weekend Sale

Hey Everyone ..

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day and for those that don't have such a great day hopefully it will get better for you. Most people say what they are thankful for on Thanksgiving, but on holidays I have a hard time saying what mine are because I keep thinking of all the families in need that go without on the holidays. Two years ago that was my family and if it wasn't for The Salvation Army my family would have gone hungry more than a few times.

Today please think of the people that are going without. In our town there is always someone holding out a sign saying will work for food, or will work for a warm bed.
If you don't see or know anyone that needs the help then please go to your closest food pantry or Salvation Army and donate to them today. Even one can of corn can help someone going hungry.. an old jacket that you may consider trash may actually be able to help keep someone warm this winter. Every little bit helps.

I would also like to announce that all my kits in all my stores are marked down for the weekend to $1.00. So if you seen something you liked and it was a tad bit expensive for your taste its only a dollar now lol.
This sale will go on through Sunday. I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday weekend.

Update on Elijah

Hey everyone. Eli want to see Stacy this morning and had another set of xrays done. He still has punemonia in his left lung but the doctor did say that it looks 25 times better than when he was admitted. She said the left lung was so filled with it there was no doubt it was pnuemonia. I told her that ya know thats what my question is if he has as much as he's got now and its not bothering him then how much did he have on Sunday night on the first ER visit... she said there is no telling how much he had.
He can go back to school next week * YAY!!!* as long as his fever stays down. She said he can still get it back again just have to be careful and make sure he keeps taking the Ominicef.

Just thought I would give you all an update on my little hell cat.

Why I havent posted in a week

Some people know already some dont so I will tell you all where I have been and whats going on. On October 26th I had to take my son to the ER for lung pain.. the doc * Dr. Sadler* looked him over * ears, nose, throat* and said it was strep, gave us some antibiotics and sent us home. Elijah did not get better Wednesday his temp reached 104 and I couldn't get ahold of my husband so I called an ambulance.. they were fixing to put an IV in him but the ER told them not to .. said he didnt need it. We got to the ER and they send us to the waiting room we sit there for a bit then they let us in to a room. The same doctor that seen him on Sunday comes in with 2 nurses and tells me off .. tells me that I abused the medical system by calling an ambulance to make sure my son got seen quickly .. * which I didnt do it for that reason at all* then he proceeds to tell me nothing is wrong with my son. Then after a 10 minute chewing about how he has to look out for the medical needs of the whole community and how I abused the medical system by calling an ambulance he decides to LISTEN to what is wrong with my son.

They decided to hook him to an IV since he hadnt gone to the bathroom in almost 12 hours * hmm .. he was dehydrated* then they decide to do a strep test and a flu test and then a few xrays. Well come to find out my son has pnuemonia. Then he comes in and tells me he is borderline on admitting him * even though he is dehydrated and has high temps* So he calls my sons doctor * Stacy* she told Sadler to do what needs to be done .. I told him that I prefer for my son to go home but if he needs to be admitted then admit him. He sends us home tells us to see Stacy the next day. Gives us 2 scripts one was cough syrup the other was an inhaler * found out later that both werent even necessary for what is wrong with my son.. neither would have helped*
When I was fixing to sign the discharge papers I asked what the results were for the strep and flu tests and they were NEGATIVE ... NEGATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he didnt even HAVE strep!!!!

So Thursday I call Stacy .. Eli had an appointment at 11:00. I then call the Chief of Staff of the hospital and told him what all happened and how we were treated and that I am lawyering up.. he sends it on to the human resources office and then they call Stacy... Stacy looked at Eli and said he is badly dehydrated and needs IV fluids and antibiotics so she says go straight to the hospital get him admitted ... well we get Eli to his room and the Human resources woman meets me in the room.

Come to find out Sadler had told them I had REFUSED to admit my son. What parent in their right mind would REFUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I immediately corrected her on it and told her not to expect me to pay any of those bills ... if that doctor would have done his job right the first time things wouldn't have turned out like that .. I then pointed at my son who was getting hooked up to an IV and said does it really look like I "abused" the medical system to you?

In two weeks Sadler goes before a review board and they will decide what to do with him compared to what other doctors would do in the case. I talked to a total of 7 different doctors and each one said they would have done an xray.

A pediatrican came in from Little Rock Children's hospital and he looked over the xrays .. my son had pneumonia in both lungs not just one, which REALLY pissed me off .. Sadler said it was just in his one lung.

Anyways after 4 days of being in the Intensive Critical Care Unit we got to take my baby home.. he still has some pneumonia in his left lung but the amount they said is manageable at home.. Every four hours I have to beat on my sons chest in the lung area to help break the rest of it up. He is on some high powered extremely expensive antibiotic and goes back to see Stacy on Wednesday for another xray and to see if is progressing or degressing... if its not better then we could end up back in the ICCU again.

So I wont be around much for the next week or so. My son takes priority over everything and he needs me more then the scrap world does at this time.. I will probably be gone for about another week or so I will still check my emails and sites on occasion so if you need anything let me know.

Thank you to everyone who left me awards.. please do not be offended if I dont pass them on right now .. I have my son to think of right now.

Below is a slide show of pics I took of him in the hospital from the 31st to the 2nd.. I know some are really blurry but thats my fault .. my hands havent stopped shaking yet from the stress .. anyways .. heres my little baby boy
