At the Register: the Earth Is a Nursery

How lunch with friends turned a little bit Children of Men-ish.

And that’s all for me today, folks!  I got home from the ER at 3:30 this morning with a baby with bronchiolitis.  Never had to deal with that before.  Baby is doing much, much better today, but I think my husband and I are going to need some oxygen to get through the day.  My hat is off to all the parents who deal with medical emergencies — asthma, diabetes, CP — as a routine thing. I don’t know how you do it.  I’m feeling so grateful for my normally healthy kids.

Also, it would be nice if you could spare a prayer for the man in the hospital room next to ours last night.  He had lost an eye and was having some kind of crisis with his remaining eye.  I heard the nurse talking about morphine and hospice.  He was so gentle and patient, trying not to put anyone out of their way.  Other people’s fortitude just blows me away.
