Just to follow up:
Moshe is fine. The kidney stone is gone.
My son is fine. Even his bike seems fine (though we still have to take it to the shop to be checked).
We are all vaccinated against both the flu and the swine flu -- my kids got both shots on the same day (one in each arm) -- ouch!
My eldest took two days off of school, to recover from not feeling well. The first day (yesterday), she slept all day. Today, she seems to be back up to par. Letting her stay home today was a big deal for me. I deferred to Moshe's judgement and let her decide for herself. I would have made her go to school, even if she did "only have a tiyul shelach." I am working on "letting go."
My youngest is worried about school, but is fine healthwise.
So, all in all, everyone seems to be "good to go."
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
more observations from the USA (Chicago day 4-5)
