This is note the Bunny left for Nikki..”Good luck finding your eggs..signed the Easter Bunny”

BTW this is Donna, Sam has come down with a bad case of the flu, started not feeling well on Thursday and by Friday night had full blown flu. Hopefully he will be up to eating something for dinner.  Tomorrow is his birthday so hopefully he will totally well by then.

To show you the Lord works in strange ways, Andy and Samantha wanted to boil eggs so Nikki could dye them, I was at work and Sam was sick in bed.  Though they both can cook they weren’t sure how to boil the eggs. Andy decided he would text his gourmand cousin Tammy and ask her, How do I boil an egg…well, he didn’t notice that he had entered the text address for when I had my heart procedure and he was letting 15 people know how it went, so the how do I boil an egg went to 15 people. When I got home he told me what he had done and told me Phyllis said she was in the e.r with Len that he had a blood clot in his leg. When Sam had put on the blog about the procedure I was going to have, Phyllis called me right away, so I think my son’s text error was God’s way of letting me know that she needed me to contact her.  Len will be in the hospital for a few days, they have him on blood thinners and giving him shots.  Doctor told him no more driving long days.  They are full timers and Len likes to get behind the wheel and go.  So if you will all say a little prayer for them tonight I know they would appreciate it…he is going to be fine.

Well Nikki had a ball looking for the eggs and hunting for her basket…little ones make the bunny experience.  I don't get much of a kick out of Sam hunting down baskets. :-)
