Knock knock, who's their, the great gamboo...

I am a little slow on this post, but in my defense, we have been held hostage to the great gamboo. We are now over it, but it started with Adrie, two weeks ago she fell ill, followed by Macy three days later, with an asthma attack and an illness, than dad a few days after that. The good thing is that Ellie never seemed to get sick and that was a huge sigh of relief. I felt like a pharmacy, dealing out Ellie's usual heart meds, plus all Macy's asthma meds, along with cough syrup to everybody. Needless to say, I am exhausted from being kept up from all the coughing, not by me mind you. But I feel much better knowing that they are over it and we kept Ellie from getting it.
We did have a scare from Ellie last Friday, she wanted to keep us on our toes and keep our guard up. She was walking along the couch and fell backwards. I think it scared her and she let out this big bellow of a cry. She continued to hold her breath until she passed out! We laid her down so she could catch her breath, but it still took about five seconds for her to start breathing. We were this close to calling 911. We called cardiology, and they thought it was just from holding her breath. But when it comes to these heart babies, your not sure how much pressure their little hearts can take. We are just wondering how much stress our hearts can take. Ellie's really good about making sure our hearts are beating good.
