Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Christmas Trooper


.
My friend and co-teacher Deven's little boy is in the hospital and has been since two days before Christmas.

He had an infection in his knee that required surgery and post surgery IV antibiotics, so he and mommy are "incarcerated" until at least TUESDAY!!!


Another friend and co-teacher Diane and I made a trip up to the hospital today to see what we could do to cheer the patient and his mommy.

Just look at those sad little patient-in-the-hospital eyes!!!!

Until we said "say cheese" and those eyes brightened right up!!!

Mommy's getting a work out keeping our little patient entertained!

So I took a bag of loaner books to try to help.

And our little Christmas Trooper
gave me one more smile before we had to go!!!

Deven said...

Thanks for visiting us today! He had to have a new IV put in tonight, which I did not stick around for. He had two nurses and Grandma holding him down, and he about whooped them all. :)

Oh Deven - - - that isn't easy for a mom to watch.

I remember once when Kyle had to have stitches in his head - - - - he started out real calm, but that did not last long - - -
