Happy New Year 2013!!

 

Wishing you all a Very Happy and Blessed New Year from the GLA Toddler House!

page46bWe’re jumping into this new year with CHICKEN POX!!!  Its been a few years since it’s been around the orphanage, so I guess we’re overdue. 

Please keep the kids in your prayers as they slowly start showing symptoms and we try to keep them as comfortable as possible. Also for the nannies as they need more strength and energy to provide extra care. 

Thanks to all who have donated acetaminophen in the last few months as we will be tapping into our built up supply over the next few weeks.

Hi Molly, I am a public health nurse in Calgary and I just wanted to let you know of something which might be important now. There is a potentially serious complication when ibuprofen or aspirin is used when a child has chicken pox. It is a rare occurrance, but kids can get Reyes syndrome which can cause sudden brain damage or liver function problems. I'm not sure if this is naive to mention this, but the recommendation for flu, or chickenpox is always acetaminophen. Hope you are all coping with sad, little sick children

I will be praying for those little ones. Chicken pox can be very uncomfortable. Hopefully the cases will not be so severe. God bless you for your wonderful work.

Hi Molly. I am remembering fondly the monthly update photos of Vania with Calamine lotion all over. We'll be praying for you all and that the itchies and fevers will be mild. Sarah G.
