So my little Craig has been super busy with work. So we are working on making sure that we have some family activities. This Saturday we went on a cool hike. We went to see an arch rock bridge. The hike was actually pretty. Cool rock formations, little rocks with crystals coming out of them, there were also a lot of different kinds of cactus.... instead of just dusty brown desert like a lot of places are here in the vegas area. It was so enjoyable. We had great family time. We are trying to come up with a name like: Super family Nevada Saturday sight seeing trips...I know it needs work. Craig says our next Super Nevada fun day is in the yard doing yard work....I'm hoping for a ghost town!

Friday I took Zane into the doctor because he had a cold and his breathing wasn't great. Shallow and rapid. Anyway, they put the pulse/oxygen thing on his finger and it was like 86 or something...bad. So the doctor started giving him a breathing treatment. We were there forever. He had to have 4 treatments and finally got to 91. Still not great but okay. He wanted to put him in the hospital if we couldn't get it into the 90s. So he prescribed meds and steroids and we had to get a chest x-ray. Results=pneumonia. We talked with another doctor friend who wasn't to satisfied with Zane's pulse /ox rate called another doctor friend of his and got us into him. This other Doc. puts kids in the hospital with rates below 93. We went to him and he gave more meds too and we finally got Zane's number up to like 95-96. Yea! This all took all day. Poor Zane looked horrible. Apparently the human body likes its oxygen. We have a follow up appointment on Monday. He is already doing much better and is as wild as ever. He was sad he missed going to a birthday party and missed playing in his first basketball game.
So......I've discovered facebook. My friend Cindy told me to go get on it....whatever. Now I'm totally addicted. I love it and I'm having so much fun finding people....there are tons of people on it. I've even found 4 of my friends from grade school from when I used to live in Africa. (Which makes me think of my Africa days which leds me to consider posting a recent picture of myself in my traditional African outfit my dad brought me last time he was there...alas I don't know if I have the courage for that! Pondering). Anyway I sound like a commercial for facebook, but I really am going to have to reign myself in and not neglect my family. One more post......then off to facebook.

I've always thought I was fairly tough, but now I'm not so sure. Yesterday I got these "Invisaline" teeth shaper things from the orthodontist. I had braces about 5 or 6 years ago, but didn't wear my retainer. He said he could mostly fix them with invisaline. Anyway, my teeth hurt! Then when I take off the teeth trays and brush my teeth and put them back on...they really hurt. Yesterday I should have been handing out towels with the amount of spit flying out of my mouth. I know this is a sad sad story .....but sniff sniff....they hurt.
