I'm so, so relieved and happy for you, sister. I'll call you later.

You are hereby allowed, should your little girl protest taking her meds, to invoke the following threat: "Take your medicine, honey, or I'll call your Mean Aunt Elizabeth and she'll come give it to you. You don't want me to call MEAN--AUNT--ELIZABETH, do you?"

Works every time.

Seriously, though, I'm so glad you're all pulling through.

Thanks. There is much relief flowing here, too.

Starving,
She has to take some nastay medicine and we have to hold her down to get it in her. I am sooo calling you.
