Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
{1} Well, not much has changed with dad. He's about the same. Tired, sleepy, a bit grumpy from the steroids and still in the Hospital. :) I just got off the phone with mom and she said they're tapering him off the steroids, using steroid pills (no longer the infusions) and it's making him really sleepy. I got to tell dad I love him and tell him goodnight, and he sounded like he was about to fall asleep. lol :D Dad will have two more treatments of plasmapheresis (which they do every other day) so if there's no complications (like, having to postpone one of the treatments because of low platelets) he should be home this Friday or Saturday. But you never really know until the doctor kicks 'em out. ;)

{2} I babysat again today (go figure). And, praise God, it was a very good day!! I called mom before Munchkin's dad came to pick me up and asked her to pray for me and Munchkin, and she did. My sisters and I also pray together every night, and last night we prayed for me to have a good day babysitting. You see, Munchkin isn't always on his best behavior and when he isn't that means he's either sick, or his allergies are bugging him. But today and Saturday were very good days. I'm so excited and I am so thankful that God answered my prayers! :) 

The little munchkin himself. ;)
These are some of his toys. He especially likes the green tractor in the basket. Tractors are his favorite. :)

Sounds like a pretty fun week! We've been sick for a while.

I wish I could babysit more than I do. I love it!

We've been praying for your dad. I hope he gets better soon!

Abby :D

Hey Eldarwen! I had fun reading your post. I had a lovely Monday myself...even participated in Miscellany Monday this week! I've been just super busy getting ready for college and studying for tests...I'm also working on several knit, crochet, and sew projects. I finished a skirt on Sunday and hope to start making an apron sometime today. Anyways, hope you have a lovely week! I pray that your Dad starts to feel better soon! Blessings!
