High Five For Modern Medicine

This week has been a whirlwind, literally I am surprised that I am still alive and breathing. I am linking up with Lauren at From my Grey Desk for High Five For Fridays

1- I finished all my homework for finals ( 7 page paper, 2 assignments, and 1 field trip write up)

2- I reached a new blog goal 150 followers whoop whoop (think Baby Mama birthing class, start about 35 seconds in)

3- My little sister Gabi went halfway around the world to San Diego for college. Full-ride scholarship to USD baby, oh yes!!!! I am so proud of her, but I am counting down the weeks until family weekend (6 to be exact)

 Everyone except Milton (somebody had to take the picture)

I am not sure what happened here...


4) Most of all this week High Five for Modern Medicine

Last night I was tired and I knew all my homework was due today, so I decided to just bust it out. I figured even if I went to bed at 2 AM I would sleep better knowing it was done.

As I was pushing through my paper I heard Lulu coughing really bad so I went to check on her, and she was having a really hard time breathing. We had to take her into the ER and she turns out she has croup. 

I am so grateful that we were able to get her the medicine she needed and she is still sick, but she can breathe well. So modern medicine high five to you, because 100 years ago this could have been a whole 'nother ball game.

Question of the Day: How do you deal with being a long distance away from loved ones?
