This is Fred's third week out of work.  He was admitted to the hospital last Wednesday after not being able to get off the couch for 4 days.  We had to call 911 because he couldn't make it to the bathroom, much less the car.  They gave him high doses of IV steroids and he was released the next day with decreased swelling. 

The swelling and pain returned Friday night into Saturday morning.  On Sunday we added ibuprofin to the mix.  It seems to have helped.  We go to the MD tomorrow.  Lydia was also sick Saturday, fever, cough, runny nose, general crankiness - it may be in correlation to her 2 year molars though, she seems to be doing better today.

The DVD player died!  Pretty rough with two sick people and we don't have TV!  When Fred is napping, I try to keep Lydia quiet and Veggietales seems to do the trick.  Oh, well.  We have youtube!

Praying Fred can return to work soon enough.  Thankful that his comissions were released to him, and he got a bigger check than he was expecting.  Generally we live paycheck to paycheck, and his salary is not very big.  On the Short Term Disability he only gets 75% of his salary (which being in sales is not much).  God has provided thus far!
