Doing better

We are doing better around Casa McStew. Daniel has some antibiotic and is now eating much better... and DRINKING!! I'm so happy with that. I am now praying for a cessation of this rotten intestinal stuff. He is literally going through 15 diapers a day. And often, he is going through 6-10 pairs of pants too.
But, the color is returning to his cheeks and his eyes look less hollow and that is very good.
It is a beautiful day here in northern IL. We are getting ready to put in a very rudimentary vegetable garden. Basically, it's a pasta sauce garden -- roma tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, garlic and some lovely herbs. I'm excited. We have not been gardeners because Dennis' brother has supplied our needs amply with his garden. But we're taking the plunge and our little mini-plot will be lovely, should it flourish.
And this afternoon, I'm finally getting around to making homemade egg noodles for Tuna Noodle casserole tonight. I'm excited to bust out the Kitchen Aid mixer mom got me a while back and some new attachments.
I may have to take some photos.

Have FUN with your garden. I'm sure that your kiddos will LOVE watching the veggies grow. :)

I'm glad your little man is starting to feel better. Sounds like a miserable time.
Your garden sounds like a great idea. Have fun with it.

I'm so glad to hear he's feeling better!!! We had a little boy with the same problem at daycare, and I felt soooooooooooooo sorry for him that he had to be in the school all day. He would go through a diaper every half hour to an hour, and it was so bad, we had to take him to our huge janitor's sink and wash him down several times. His mom refused to miss work . . .well, I won't say anything more about her, but I will say for Daniel, I am SO glad you were able to be with him to nurse him back to health. It's so good for him to have been home with his mommy this whole time, safe and loved through his ordeal.

We've been out of town, so I'm just catching up on the blog; I am so sorry he's been sick, but praising God there is finally some relief! Can't wait to see pics when your garden gets planted and as it grows. Love ya, girl!
