Pinkeye Can Be Very Serious

What a panic the last few days have been.  No sewing has been accomplished during this time.

I received a text from my DIL that my granddaughter was being admitted to the hospital for pinkeye.  They had been to the doctor on Monday and received an ointment to put in her eye.  By Friday it was worse and they headed back to the doctors.  They then admitted her and were talking of doing a CT of her eye.  It was decided to give her some antibiotics first and have the eye doctor check it again on Saturday. No CT.  They are back home now; the fever is gone and she is feeling better.  But. they are are quarantined for the next 2 weeks.  Which means they won't be coming for Thanksgiving and I will need to mail the Advent Calendar to them.   I'm so bummed.  But I hope she is over this soon.  Keep your fingers crossed for her.

oh, how sad for your granddaughter, I had no idea that pink-eye could get that serious. And a guarantine? You just don't hear that anymore, do you? Sorry they won't get to be with you for Thanksgiving. :-( but I hope you have a good day and the little gal is over her pink-eye very soon.

Aww, that's terrible. What a bummer that they won't be around. But it's good news that she will be OK, that's what matters really :) This might be a cheesy idea but could you video chat with them during your Thanksgiving meal, you know like eat at the same time and stuff? I know you can do it through Yahoo messenger and it works pretty good, that way you guys could see and talk and stuff.. The rest of your numbers look fantastic!!
