Faith and Alphonso, the Bear!


So, poor little Faith has been so sick this past month! She has had cryptosporidia (a water-borne parasite) and had to go to the emergency room because she was not quite herself--she ended up having a 104 degree temp and a viral infection that just needed to resolve. Well, at the emergency room, everyone was so sweet to her, and the nurse gave her Alfonso the bear. When she was sick, she held very closely to this little bear. Now, she loves him, but is busy feeling better and busy tending to other activities. Here is a picture of her with Alfonso (named for St Alphonsus hospital that we went to).

Sorry to hear Faith had to go to the emergency room, but I am really glad she's feeling better. I too had an "Alphonso" when I was little. I spent lots of time in the hospital and my mom would always get me a gift when I went. So one time, I got Ally the Cat. (Little did I know at the time, her name was not really "Ally." On the tag she came with, it read "Alleycat." So of course, being the great five-year-old that I was, I assumed her name was Ally. I still have her today.) :)Hang onto Alphonso, Faith. You'll be glad you saved him all those years...
