Fogelquist Family

For those of you who remember Claire and Doug they just posted the following on there family blog. Please keep them in your prayers...

"So please keep our little family in your prayers...Monte had a huge uncontrollable seizure Monday morning, was taken by ambulance "red hot" (with lights and sirens) on a 40 ride to the better hospital, then life-flighted via Helicopter to St. Louis Childrens Hospital. Meanwhile, I drove like a demon to meet him up there, a 4 1/2 hour drive from the hospital.
On Tuesday the Neurosurgeons decided to do a surgery to place a "bolt" in his skull to test the CSF Pressure...then immediately rushed him into surgery when it registered 25. Normal is apparently 0-5. Since then he's still struggling. He hasn't been able to keep down any liquids since we've been here, and he retches all night and day. He's sleeping much too much...and no one can figure out why. The new shunt (Revision #28) is in a great place, draining well, and looks great on C.T.
Our Neurologist said today, "Sometimes when we don't understand something we wait awhile until it just goes away"
That seems to be the current plan, as soon as he wakes and starts eating and feeling better, we should be able to head home.
Thanks to our friends who helped arrange the driving and babysitting of Piper...she's hanging out with her dad this week, who is currently unemployed. Talk about great timing, right!?! So they're entertaining each other.
So, gotta get back to Neuro-Floor, humbly asking for your prayers for Monte..."

Spring Cleaning...

Thought I would post a few things we are getting rid of before I freecycle them...

Brown leather rocker/recliner. Looks like a lazy-boy, is real leather, and has a small tear on the back of the seat. (A blanket folder over the back would hide it.)

Children's easel from Ikea. Needs a fresh coat of paint.

Brown wood blanket chest. Modern looking. We bought this a few years ago from Down East. Great condition, we just don't have room for it.

I don't have time to take pictures bit if you want to come by and see them just e-mail me a time.


Need to Borrow a Lab Top!?!?

Hey Girls!

Megan Johnson here. So I have the wonderful privilege of presenting at one of the classes for Stake Women's Conference this Saturday (I hope you can sense the enthusiasm! :) I was planning on doing a powerpoint presentation since I'm a big believer in visual aids. Apparently the stake has a projector I can use, but I need to come up with the lab top. This isn't normally something I would ask to borrow, but given the circumstances, is there anyone who would be willing to let me borrow a lab top for Saturday so I can present my info this way?? Feel free to give me a call or send me an e-mail: THANKS!

In Need of a Dresser

With another baby on the way, I find I am running out of room in the kid's dressers, so I am looking for another one. I don't want to pay any more than about $50. It needs to be a 5 drawer or more, and tall, not a long one. I don't care what it looks like as long as the drawers all work. If anyone has one they are going to be getting rid of, please e-mail me at or comment on here. Thanks!

FREE TV & Book Shelf

***Both items are gone, thank you.***

Hi Ladies,

I have a couple items I'm going to donate, but I thought I'd see if someone wants them first. I have a 5-shelf bookcase that I bought at Target about two years ago for $70. It's maple color and is in great shape, except that the backing is coming off in a couple spots. You might be able to staple it back on. I also have a 25-inch Sharp television. It's 7 or 8 years old and it works fine. Sometimes we have to mess with the inputs in order to watch a DVD though. I'll keep both items until Saturday. After that they're outta here! And, since they're free I'm too lazy to take pictures of them. Sorry! You're welcome to come take a look though.

Let me know if anyone is interested.

New Preschool Info

Hi all-
My very dear friend Heather is starting up a preschool in her home and I thought I would pass the info along to all of you whom might be interested. She is starting a three and four year old class in September. She lives in our stake in the 16th ward so the preschool is close by and limited to ten kids per class which is nice too. The three year old class is T/T from 1:oo to 3:00 and the four year old class is M/W/F from 9:30 to 11:30. The four year old class is almost full, but the three year old class has several openings still available. The registration fee is only $20 and the supply fee is $20 as well- a steal for those of you who are familiar with preschool fee's a round here. Anyway if you are interested you can contact Heather for more information at or her phone # is 768-2820.
