Carmen update: Carmen seems to be doing a tiny bit better. She is down to 2-3 bouts of diarrhea per day instead of 5-6! (Funny how that is really exciting!) She has one more week of Flagyl and then if she needs more, her doctor will prescribe another round. So far, no one else in the house has come down with C-diff.
A wonderful lady named Dee sent a package of all kinds of fun stuff for Carmen and Lauren! Dee has 4 children, including a beautiful little girl from Guatemala. Dee and her family have sent wonderful gifts before and Lauren thinks they are Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, all in one! In fact, Lauren was looking at a friend’s birthday pictures yesterday and commented that the friend must know Dee since she had gotten so many fun presents! Lauren spent all day yesterday working on crafts and did not ask to watch TV or play a computer game once!
Here are a few pictures after we opened the package from Dee- Carmen resting on her red lion blanket, a super excited Lauren with all of her fun stuff (crafts, princess stuff, jewelry, a doll, books, a kit to color a plate, etc.) and everything set up for a picture by Lauren. Thank you so very much Dee and family!
