Allison has also been sick this week. She has missed school all week and I don't see her being able to make it on Friday. Missing school is a huge deal for her since she missed so much last year. She seems to have a flu bug. ( No, we are not concerned about Swine Flu at this time as she is not running a fever.) I am concerned because the medication she takes suppresses her immune system and with being sick her immune system is compromised even more. So, we will keep an eye on her closely even when she starts getting better. With her depleted immune system I fear she could be very vulnerable if exposed to the swine flu. Lots of hand washing and use of sanitizer around our house right now.
The Arthritis Walk in Salem is coming up May 9th. Allison has currently met her personal goal of $500 but we need to keep working on the team goal. She is now thinking of raising her personal goal. We currently have 11 members on her team ( Mitch has yet to register-slow poke.) If you would like to take a nice stroll along the river in Salem with us on Saturday May 9th feel free to sign up for Allison's team.
