Sentences and Lice ... Yikes!

Our pediatrician and CF Clinic have not received their swine flu vaccines in yet. So, we're still waiting. I feel apprehensive about giving them the vaccine because of all the concerns of safety over them. I know I'll have a sense of peace after we get these vaccines over with.

Both of the children have begun writing sentences in school! It's very exciting seeing how far they have already come. They are reading small, short books as well.

And, finally: lice. I think Azer is the one who got them first, somehow, from somewhere. I don't know if I'll ever figure out the source, but I suspect it comes from school somewhere. I pulled quite a few bugs out of him, and only a few out of Reema. Just in case anybody wants to know, I used coconut oil. After leaving it on their heads for a few minutes, I brushed my hand through their hair, and found dead lice on my hand. That's how easy it was. Note that I did comb through tediously for a long time. And I am still combing through daily. It's been a week now, and I haven't found any lice, dead or alive (knock on wood). Dang bugs. I feel like a monkey combing and picking through their hair. Only I don't get to eat them.
