Laughter is GOOD Medicine

Katie did gradually get better yesterday, although she did not want to do much beyond sitting on the sofa watching the movies we got for her. She has fallen in love with "Andre". She chuckled and laughed throughout the movie and then wanted to watch it again and again.

Later in the day Mary, Katie and I curled up and read all together "The Pancake Man." Katie is studying the Gingerbread Man for her literature and we are reading different versions. It gave the girls the idea to write their own version of the "Gingerbread Man", which led to even more laughter. So much so that I don't think they ever finished it.

Mary did her best to entertain all of us, she put on a hilarious costume show that kept us all in stitches.

By bedtime; Katie's temp was almost normal, she had color in her cheeks and was not ready to go to sleep (a good sign she had turned the corner). Some of it was the medicine, but a lot of it was all the laughing she did yesterday.
