It is a pill that you put under your tongue and let it "melt." He had not heard of it and assumed his doctor had not either since she did not prescribe it for him. He felt better almost immediately and could not thank me enough. He told his mom about someone helping him out and she told him to be sure and get the name of the medication. I gave him the remaining pills I had. When I saw him at the awards banquet Saturday night, he looked so much better and told me that he could not believe how good he felt. I told him that I felt good just being able to help him! He said his first job on Monday is to call his doctor and order some of the pills.
Doesn't that just make you feel good, knowing the difference you can make in people's lives like that?!

I've never heard of that restaurant, but it reminds me of the birthday "ritual" at Bugaboo Creek (a steakhouse chain). They staff would clap their hands and sing "Happy Birthday" to the tune of the Hallelujah Chorus while carrying a plush moose head to the celebrant's table. The final words were "Kiss the moose!" and they'd thrust the moose head toward the celebrant. If we went there on one of our birthdays, we'd keep shut about it ... we couldn't bear thinking about the "kiss the moose" germy-ness of that moose head!

Not to worry about what others think, you will feel more comfortable as they get older to take them more places.

I hope you had fun celebrating your birthday!
Thanks, CAH! I would feel the same way about the swimming too. That would be scary to have them around a pool like that.

I had a nice meal out with my friends. It's always nice to get time out.

How is your mom feeling?

The kids got in the pool Sunday afternoon and were having so much fun, I jumped in, too...for about 15 seconds. WOW, that was some cold water!

Nancy had to wear one of those 24 hour heart monitor things (a holter monitor) all day Saturday, and we turned it back in to the hospital yesterday afternoon. They called back as soon as we got home. Something went wrong and it didn't record a thing...LOL. She actually felt fine this weekend, but I'm taking her to see my cardiologist today, just to be sure.

Elizabeth's dance recital was this weekend, and next weekend is her ballet
Thinking of Nancy and keeping her in my prayers.
