{AT LAST ...}

At last i have a few minutes to sit and think ... Last week we had to rush Miguel to the Hospital on Sunday morning, as on Sat night he was running a constant fever of 40 deg Celsius all night, they diagnosed him hospital with a serious bacterial throat infection. We were there for 4 days so that meant 5 days of 40+ degree Celsius fevers. On Wednesday they said that we could go home and I thought that he was better this week, but no such luck its back.

He stared with the fevers again on Sunday night, the Doctor at the hospital confirmed of Wednesday that it was back ... looks like the only way we are going to get rid of it is to remove his tonsils ... and now it looks like he is developing a nasty sinus infection on top of everything, this evening on top of his fever he was choking and throwing up. Oh my poor little angel, he really is having a tough time of it ...
I had to post this to remind you all of that smiling face and cheeky grin ... I could just eat him up at times.

but he did have one good day though ... on Friday Chris managed to get home in the early afternoon, so because Miguel was feeling better we said that he could have a treat - the first thing that came out his mouth was - GOLF. Golf is his obsession, he cant get enough of it. So we took him to play mashie at EMBERTON GOLF CENTRE.

It is such a lovely course and perfect for Miguel. He played such a great game and had some real hum-dinger of shots, getting some great lift and length on a few of his shots. The putting is still some thing he is too impatient with - I think that when it comes to putting he is under the impression that you play it the same way you would an action filled game of hockey, but hell the boy is only 3!!! After finishing the 9 holes with dad, off they went to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls between them (about 40 each). Miguel thought that he had died and gone to heaven - playing 3 hours of golf AND spending a weekday afternoon with dad.

I wanted to give shout out to our friend Alan and Lisa who had the following exciting news .. Squishie was born at Parklands Hospital on 19 September 2007 @ 13h50, weighing in at 3.48kg's and is 53cm in length. Squishie (his name for the last 9 months) is now officially named... Corban Spies

Welcome to the night shift guys! The hours are lousy, but the benefits are great! Congratulations on Your New Baby. A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longerbankroll smaller, clothes shabbier,the past forgotten,and the future worth living for.So not all bad then?


the poem in the LO goes as follows:

Someday I'll jump through puddles,

Take a stroll or run a race.

Someday I'll walk across the street,

Or maybe walk in space,
Someday I'll scale a mountain,

Or I'll join a ballet corps.

Someday I'll walk a tightrope,

Or explore the ocean floor.
Someday these feet will do some things,

That only heaven knows,

But for today they're happyJust to wiggle all their toes
