It's too close to Christmas for Miss Tobi to be so sick!

Little Miss Tobi Rose is so sick. She is in the hospital tonight. I would much rather be there with her than here in my bed! But I must work tomorrow and her mommy is there with her. She is so sick that she just laid there while they poked and prodded her at the office and again at the hospital. She is barely talking her little throat hurts and her neck hurts so bad she won't turn her little head. How you see her is how she holds her head most of the time. She won't eat or drink anything. After the first dose of antibiotic in her little IV and some Tylenol, she is feeling a little better. She did tell her mommy to "cry about it" once when she was mad about something. She even was a good girl while they ran a CT scan on her little neck. She has a "peri-tonsillar abscess" which you can google if you are so minded. It will explain what it is for you. When we were at the Dr.'s office, they thought like we did that she had the flu although she had her flu shot in November. They also checked her for strep throat which was negative too. So the nurse practitioner had one of the doctors to come check her out instead of just giving us antibiotics for her and sending us home. Kudos to her. She was excellent and very thorough in her exam. The doctor came in and said Tobi needed to go to the hospital. One look at her and even non medical folks know she is sick! Even the receptionist said she didn't need to wait and had them call her right back. Hopefully, she will get to come home in a day or two. And hopefully she won't need surgery. Say a prayer for our little angel if she crosses your mind. If I could take her illness and let her be well, I would in a heartbeat! I love that baby girl (and her brother).

Perry Dale is at hes great grandmothers tonight. She is keeping him while Tobi is in the hospital--at least for the next couple of days, then if she has to stay longer, we might have to do something else. We will see.

I have a headache like I haven't had in a very long time, I suppose it is from the stress of the day today. WOW! What a day!

So, I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend. Christmas will be here before we know it. Remember who we celebrate this season for........
St Luke Chapter 2
1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

When my children were small, I read these passages every year just before telling them "The Night Before Christmas" just before bedtime every Christmas eve. I still read it for myself. They think they have "outgrown" it! Maybe Tobi and Bubba will listen!

Love y'all!
