Thanks for the well wishes for my son. After bringing him home and talking to him it sounds like the cough that has been hanging on just was aggravated by gym class and he went into a coughing spell and that caused him to be sick. He is feeling much better now. I made him rest in his jammies all day and got some stronger cough medicine for him. Hopefully all will go well today. :)

I was, at one time, a classical flute performer as well. But my grandmother never showed the proper appreciation for the music then, either. lol

Hope you've had a great day!

Thank you for the blog comment. I guess you are right. The friends I do have sort of like me as I am, and the ones that tried to abuse my good nature I did manage to stop seeing. So I must have gotten to a good place.
