What's got Mebbie smiling so big? That piece of paper - that's what. For the last almost year and a half Mebrate has had to take some medicine with applesauce every morning in front of a state-sanctioned witness. And she has been a TROOPER about it.
See when she first came home - she was testing positive on a skin test for TB - but her chest x-rays were clean as can be. Well - apparently the state health departments don't mess around with that and we realized quick what we would have to do... give Mebbie some medicine once a day - monitored by the state - for over a year.
But today... today we are DONE! And that piece of paper she's holding is our proof! About a month ago I said something to Mebbie about it almost being done - and bless her little heart - she said:
"I am so happy because that stuff tastes so bad."Here she had been taking it for over a year and had NEVER once complained about it. Such a tough little girl...
Tonight when we announced it was over - her sister who has been a big cheerleader and champion for her by eating plain applesauce with her every morning (way to sacrifice for family there Meron!) proclaimed:
"YAY!! No more health department!"You can say that again Meron - but I know the ladies working there are gonna miss you guys.
Mebbie was so pumped she had to share it with Clay Bear as well!
Mebrate - we are so proud of how you handled this baby girl! You continue to amaze us day by day!
