FC: OUR THIRD YEAR
1: made for you by Mommy
3: We are 3!
4: We rode the pumpkin train with Lily and had a great time. After the ride was over, Lily had a seizure. We called the Boone ambulance, but eventually took her by car to the emergency room in Ames. They said she just had a virus with a high fever that caused the seizure. You both remember that night very well and often talk about how the "bright lights" came for Lily when she was sick. It was very scary for everyone, and we were so happy she was okay!

15: This year you became quite fascinated with what Mommy does at work. I even had the opportunity to come to your preschool class and talk with them about being a nurse. | Unfortunately, you both had to experience the medical world as a patient this year too.
16: On a Monday evening, we came home from school and work. Mommy started supper and then went to the front room to listen to Ethan's lungs because he was sick. The next thing we knew, Aidan was screaming because he had grabbed a very large knife and sliced the tip of his finger. | Mommy and Aidan quickly packed up and went to the Clinic. Dr. Halbur saw Aidan and said he would need a few stitches. After numerous injections, Aidan's finger was finally numbed up and stitches could be placed. | Aidan and Mommy got home about 9:30 pm. Every evening for the next week, we had to change the dressings on Aidan's finger as well as give Ethan a breathing treatment. Our two little patients did very well.
