Happy Easter

I hope everyone had a happy Easter.
It's been a dreary, rainy Sunday. We've enjoyed the morning and afternoon cozied up snuggly in our house. Brandon is yet again sick. On Saturday night his fever reached 105.1
All we can do is Tylenol, Tylenol and more Tylenol. Motrin kills off platelets so we aren't supposed to use it, yet...fevers kill platelts too and at some point, one has to weigh the platelet-killing powers of Motrin against the platelet-killing powers of a 105 degree fever. At least the Motrin could bring him some relief.
The kids, Brandon included enjoyed Easter. Due to Brandon's illness we couldn't go to church so we did a Bible study at home. It was noisy and filled with incessant interuptions in the form of babies crying, fighting over plastic eggs, and jockeying for prime lap position while I read from the Bible and both Albert and I tried to make sure each older child was appropriately understanding all the meaning behind the verses. Note to self: buy a Message Bible for studying with the kids.
All and all our day was absolutely splendid. It was warm, romantic, and un-rushed. The kids played, ate tons of candy, ate tons of hard boiled eggs, ate tons more candy. We talked much about God and the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and little about anything else.
Albert left his cell phone uncharged most of the day. When I asked him if he'd called his family yet he told me he was planning to just send out a mass text. I guess he wasn't ready to let life intrude on our snug little cocoon we enjoyed all day...
Tomorrow will be another story. Brandon will need to go to clinic I'm sure. Isaiah has his long awaited Gastroenterologist appointment as well. Albert has to take Zoe to the animal hospital to be placed in quarantine for 10 days. Yes, you read correctly. Yesterday, as Drew was taking Zoe out to use the bathroom, a 7th grade neighbor kid kept pointing a Nerf Missle Launcher (you know, the great big, huge one) at the dog's face. Manny told the kid to stop or the dog would bite him. The kid insisted that the dog would not. The kid then indeed shot the dog with the missle launcher, scaring the dog. The kid then leaned into the dogs face saying "the dog won't bite me"and just then, the dog indeed bit the kid. Not a huge bite, more like a scrape, but it did break the skin. Great. The parents freaked and the Dad told Albert he didn't like Zoe's breed of dog (she's a Rottweiler) and that he needed to make a report. Probably a smart thing to do anytime any type of dog bites. Because we are total slackers and because our dog is never around other animals...she is an inside dog, we do not have her properly vaccinated. We don't do any shots for her. So now, this lands her in quarentine for ten days. Seriously, I know its totally our fault for not having her vaccinated but I can't help but be irritated by the fact that a 7th grade kid shot her with a big, fat missle gun while she was on a leash, in our yard, minding her own business and the Dad of the kid thinks that it's because of her breed! She was minding her own business. She wasn't bothering that kid. But now it will go down as one more Rottweiler bite that further serves to perpetuate negative attention. The police came out to the house to make a report and told us that we may be asked to pay the kid's hospital bills. I totally understand why we have to pay the quarentine money...totally our fault for not having the dog up to date on shots but I will not pay that hosptial bill without a fight. Is there no accountability at all for the fact that the kid, who is in 7th grade, so we aren't talking about a small chid, delibertely provoked the dog, after being asked not to? The Nerf missle I am referring to is not what you would normally think of when you think of a nerf gun. It is not a small little foam bullet you typically see. No, this is a huge bullet that is many inches thick and is well over a foot long. I feel like one of those crazy dog owners who say "that kid provoked my dog!" but he did darn it! We'll see what happens. Either way, tomorrow Zoe gets a vacation for 10 days.

I hate people! What else did they expect the dog to do? What a moron. Now when our dog supposedly "bit" a friends kid we had him in quaratine but we did it at our house. Too bad you can't do the same thing.
Glad you had a nice Easter but I am worried about Brando. 105 is high. Please keep us updated.

It's too bad that you have to quarantine poor Zoe! Parents just never want to believe that their "perfect" children could ever do anything wrong sometimes. Heaven forbid the dog not be the one at fault. Oh well...I have been on the biting end and it is very scary! Although I was 7 and didn't realize what I was doing.

I hope Brandon gets to feeling better. Easter at your house sounds like a ton of fun! Did you see the Children's Bible that I posted about. It is worth getting. It really makes it so easy to understand. :) Check it out. Love you all!!!

I'm so sorry that Brandon is sick AGAIN. I hope he's feeling better today.

That sucks about the dog. That kid should be put in quarantine for 10 days too. We had an incident here last week where one of the neighbors kids jumped over our fence to play without telling me and she's scared of dogs and Sparky likes to nip at ankles. It sounded like someone was being killed in my backyard. Her dad and I both went running ... me in my jammies with a hole in the crotch, nice. Thankfully the dad agreed with me when I told her that Sparky was only trying to play with her and wasn't trying to hurt her but she should never jump over my fence without letting me know.

Actually regardless as people may think Ang, Rottweilers are NOT known for attacking people and biting. They are actually the calmest dogs of all breeds. Labadors are even more vicious. That stupid kid. Sandy at work said it is not fair to you after I explained the situation and she thinks the kid is stupid and needs a firm talking to but as it sounds, the parents need one too. On the plus side, if you brought her to us, I will be there taking care of her and she will kinda be on vacation. :D She will get comfortable bedding to sleep on in the cage (we have several blankets of all sizes and shapes and textures. For example sheets and rugs and fleece blankets and comforters and several others as well as the usual towels), expensive food that we feed all the dogs (unless you brought hers) and a free bath too (I think dogs in bite confinement get free baths too). Plus I told Lindsey that I work with this morning that your dog might be coming in and why she bit that kid and she said I don't blame her. I would bite someone too if someone shot me. She'll be well taken care of.

Have you tried warm baths to try to get the fever down? Hope all went well today at the dr and hope the other appt went well, too!
I'm so sorry about the dog! I can't believe that kid would do that! figures that nothing will happen to him......

Alisha said...

I hate that! Honestly, I love rottweilers! Beautiful dogs! If they are raised properly, they turn out to be wonderful dogs!

Hope Brandon feels better soon. 105 ... that is CRAZY!

Ora said...

I think that God gives you all of these crazy experiences just to entertain the rest of us! The dog thing that is- now don't get too used to her being gone- I know she is super sweet and all but....she will return. Haven't you had problems with that kid before?
I hope that Brandon is doing better and that his counts are hanging in there. I will call you very soon....Luv ya'll!
