Nothing significantly new here, lately! Anna caught one of those cold/bronchial viruses, so she's been coughing a lot lately. I had something similar about two weeks ago--nothing alarming . . . just one of those things where you need Vick's Vapor cream at night and a humidifier going (although I think something is wrong with the humidifier I recently bought---I may have to call the manufacturer). At least that means that we should wait another week or two for the upcoming blood test. Anyway . . . Anna didn't have to wait around anywhere (and find some way to kill time) for the regional Capital Area Science Fair, because we had such a busy weekend (last weekend), that my parents let Anna spend two nights with them in Maryand (that sure helped with logistics of last weekend). She had a blast with Mom and Dad and her best buddy cousin, who also spent the weekend with Grandma and Granddad. Mom and Dad's house is the only place she's ever spent the night (besides JRA Camp or on vacation with us). That seems rather odd in some ways, but that's just the way it's been. At least Anna's to the point where she doesn't need all that much help with organizing her medications. She has it all down-pat, and she's in a routine whereby she knows it's a regular part of her day (after breakfast for the 100 mg of Cyclosporine, and bedtime for everything else).
