Well, both Rylie and I are feeling much better. Thanks for the well wishes and all. Rylie's next appointment with the doctor is next Thursday. I guess we'll see if he hears a murmur again and find out what is going on.
I'm still crossing my fingers that it was just a one time thing. If not, at least, this time I know the questions to ask. I should write them down while I have it all in my head. You know how it goes, you have all these questions and then once your there in the office, everything you wanted to ask just flies out of your head. Ugh, I hate that.
These are home health remedies that have been emailed to me or that I found on the Internet. I have not tried them all and do NOT guarantee the effectiveness of them. If you try one and it works, or if you have one that works for you, please email me. Thanks.
Achy muscles from the flu

Place enough rice to fill up your sock and tie it tight with a rubber band. Put it in a microwave oven for a few minutes until it is as hot as you like. Makes a wonderful heat pack for any body aches, and you can take it anywhere because you don't need to plug it in.
The following are some things I received in my e-mail from Hewlett-Packard. I thought with the upcoming holidays these could be useful to some of you.

The Universe's Plan For You
The path that speeds us toward our dreams can be a challenging and complex one, so it's easy to get bogged down in confusion and insecurities. We often hesitate at the start of that path, questioning our purpose or our capabilities. Yet we should be moving forward joyously, eager to discover what destiny has in store for us. The universe has plans for us that eclipse anything we have dreamed of thus far. Though we must work diligently to fulfill our potential and to accomplish our individual missions, the universe is aware of both the quests we chose before birth and the goals we have formulated in adulthood. If we accept that it us watching over us and believe that it will facilitate our eventual success, the universe will provide us with the assistance and opportunities that enable us to make significant progress on our journeys of ambition.
Nothing happens without a purpose. Whether we attract success or repel it depends on our willingness to stay open to a wide range of possibilities and to embrace concepts like synchronicity. The universe is always ready to care for our needs, but we must not write off its loving attention as mere circumstance or chance. Likewise, we must endeavor to ensure that our egos do not become a barrier that prevents us from recognizing that even perceived mistakes and strife can be profound lessons that smooth the progress of personal evolution. When we understand that we only need to enthusiastically try our best to realize our objectives, the universe will take care of the details, propelling us forward in its unstoppable current. We may not always immediately understand the significance of certain experiences, but our trust will help us choose wisely at each crossroads.
The universe wants to see you accomplish your goals. No matter how long you've dallied or hesitated, it will always be there to put its plan for you in motion at the first sign of your faith. You can make the most of this aid by acquiescing to it rather than fighting it-nurture your dreams but do not attempt to micromanage every detail along the way. The universe will provide you with guidance and, if you heed that guidance, you will find your formerly stressful quest for success will become a journey of great joy.
When I was a very young girl I believed that if I just let things happen, that it was God's (Universe/destiny/higher power/whatever) plan for me. As I grew up I learned that God had a destiny for me, but I also had the ability and the right to make choices and decisions to make along the way. It was a hard learned lesson and a very important one.
The decisions I make are based on what I've learned (and lived) through life. They are the decisions that are right for me, based on my life history. They may not be the right decisions for someone else. But that is because God has a different life plan for all of us.
Just because someone else may make a different decision doesn't make it right or wrong. Thats just the choice they've made based on what they've learned and lived. I try not to sit in judgement on anyone else's choices. That is not my job, nor anyone elses. It's hard sometimes because some people can really infuriate me, lol.
Wow, I really like how these Daily OM's can make me think about some things.
