He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

Even the dog!

What a week. Seems like the winter isn't quite over at least on the illness front. Joshua has come down with a nasty cough for which he was prescribed steroids. He will finish them today and start them again on Tuesday for his chemo schedule. He also has a nasty ear and sinus infection so he's on an antibiotic for that and needs daily nebs for the cough. Adam is also getting nebs for his cough and therefore is moody as that is an inhaled steroid. And finally, the dog seems to be allergic to something, I think it's her food, and she has scratched spots on her body that required a trip to the vet for you guessed it, steroids!

Calgon, PLEASE take me away!

Oooh, I'm sorry! Give everyone (even the dog) a tissue and go treat yourself to a Spring pedicure!! The 70 degree weather is coming! Hang in there!!

Darn! Can you invest in some kind of stock options for "steroids"? You'll clean up! Hope everybody including the puppy feels well real soon!
