It was a very pretty day there that's for sure. Thank you soooo much!! A few more posts & it should be wrapped up.That hyena does look like he is going to pounce on J!!! The sky looks so blue on your last day which makes it all the harder to leave our Happy Place! It's always sad when that TE bus pulls up. I've really enjoyed every moment of this TR.
He is a lot of fun!! I'm glad I could be of assistance!! Writing it helped me also!!J is such a delight! He really does love his jelly beans. You're absolutely right about the WDW sign and the emotions that go along with it! I can't believe this TR has almost come to an end as it's helped so many of us get through this difficult time. Thank you!
I'm glad we're not the only ones--& more than just once!! I think we just got lucky the first time & nobody was paying attention!! I really don't know what our excuse was(both times)!! Just not paying attention I guess!We’ve gotten on the wrong monorail too! The first time we had to back through security. We got the same TSA agent and she looked at us like we were morons. But we had two kids and tons of stuff. We just missed the sign! Most recently we didn’t have to go back through. Maybe we were supposed to and cheated? It seems like an easy mistake to make.
Also, keep buying those jelly beans! That’s what Aunts are for. J is a delight.
Yes, he is & as long as I can keep getting away with it I'll buy them!!
That's a great idea!! I'm not the most tech savvy though. Is there a way to print these things out?I know you are super busy now, but maybe you can start putting these together in some sort of book or binder for J and when he's older he will have the whole enchilada and the funny sayings! Whatever you do, it will be the most meaningful gift ever.
From a teacher who's had a very attentive principal, I want to commend R. We try not to bother Admin when they are on vacay but sometimes....there's THAT issue that pops up and we need advice PRONTO! So please tell him thanks for being available to his teachers!
Not trying to take away anything from R but I don't think his teachers knew that he was away since he didn't miss anytime from work. I'm pretty sure he didn't tell them. But, in all fairness it still was a day off for him b/c it was MLK day.
Wait until you hear what he says about the licorice!!I was going to say something similar as @slipperalwaysfits about binding the TR into a book for J when he’s older.
And I KNEW you were going to tell us J was making sure he could sneak some jelly beans
That's a very good point.Well, I read that that ship where they tested everyone on board...(navy ship maybe?), 60% of those who tested positive were asymptomatic. And they've been saying here since the beginning that younger people were reporting milder symptoms than those in the high risk groups, and at one point they said 25% were asymptomatic. And when you are ill, your immune system is fighting hard. It's possible that people have more than one illness at a time. So they get a stomach flu at the same time as a respiratory infection, get tested and discover it's Covid-19, but that the stomach issues are unrelated to that, but they had it at the same time, so they get reported as possible symptoms. Who knows?
My BIL is fine now. He was in and out of the hospital for about 2 months I think? He was feeling really really tired, and got winded walking from his house to his parents' house half a block away, and he had a slight fever. For him, fever means he has to go to the hospital in case his body starts attacking the transplanted kidney. (I think that's why, anyway) So he went in and he was in for a week or two, and he had already been sick for a week or two before he went in. He had some testing done, but they couldn't find an infection, but said he was dehydrated. So they put him on an IV and got him hydrated, then released him just before his birthday. We went to see him on his birthday, but he was SOOOO tired, we just had a drink with him and then he went to bed. The next day or the day after that, he went back to the hospital. His kidney doctor hadn't been there the first time he was admitted, but was when he went back, so they tested his kidney function and he was down to 20%. Normal for him is around 35% But they still couldn't find any bacteria or anything. He was in the hospital for another....3-4 weeks I think? They gave him antibiotics, but they weren't working. So they did all sorts of scans and such and said he had pneumonia, so they gave him or more specialized antibiotic for lungs, but it still didn't respond. They thought maybe it was his kidney meds causing it, so they took him off that and put him on another one. Eventually he did get better, and he was released, but he was exhausted for a few weeks after. He started with it in January and I think he was released in the first week of March or so. We started really hearing about Covid outside of China at the end of February. I remember hoping he didn't catch it from someone in the hospital, especially when the first couple of cases showed up in the town where he lives, and then a couple were admitted to the hospital he was in. But they never tested him for it because he had been in there for so long at that point that they never considered that, and it was so hard to get tests then anyway. But as soon as he was released, he went home and has just stayed there. He's been able to have groceries delivered and my in-laws live right there and my MIL makes food for him sometimes. So he hasn't had to go out at all. Moot point if he already had it, but he doesn't think it could have been that, so he's still hibernating.
Is R completely recovered now? How long did he have whatever he had?
Wow--your poor BIL. That sounds very rough. I feel bad for him.
Yes, he is recovered. I'm pretty sure it was about a month.
Oh wow--I can see why he would be traumatized!!Ugh....he's not wrong about that being the worst part of flying. The first time we brought the kids to Disney, I don't know WHAT was going on, but we had to go through security flying IN to MCO, and not just once. We got of the plane and there was an immediate security check. My son was 2 and had to take off his shoes. They were red Cars crocs and he LOVED those shoes, and he didn't understand that they were just checking them and he'd get them back. He screamed bloody murder because he thought they were stealing his beloved shoes. And we had to go through 3 different security checkpoints and remove the shoes every single time. The poor kid was traumatized.
You also!! I'm feeling much better about this!!Such a cute Disney clipboard pad you bought yourself! Sorry R was feeling so frustrated but when you're feeling that lousy, all you want to do is get home to your own bed I'm sure. We did the wrong TSA gate and monorail also and then had to go through the correct security line before getting to our gate.
you're probably right!! If that's the case he got us good!!I'm thinking the Night Manager that you got rid of did some voodoo on you and the boss.
