Yesterday we made another trip to the ER. It wasn't for me though. The youngest daughter has asthma and was having problems breathing even after using her puffer. We took her in the morning and she was treated with ventolin. The treatment caused her heart to race and was clocked at 150 beats per minute. The ER doctor kept her in for observation until the heart rate stared to slow down and her breathing returned to normal. Once again in the evening we had to return to the ER as she was having problems breathing again. Back to the ER we went and again she was given ventolin. While she was being treated the Queen took me home as it was getting way past my 9pm bed time. They both came home later. It turns out she has a chest infection that the first ER doctor never caught.
The daughter's biggest worry was that she was going It spend her 18th birthday in the hospital.:) In Manitoba at 18 kids officially become adults and her birthday is April 4.
I never took Abbey out for our walk yesterday due to miserable weather with light showers all afternoon. It looks like today I'll be able to get back to our regular routine.
Yesterday I pulled the cover from the grandmother clock that's been giving me problems. At one time someone had over oiled it. The plates are almost dripping oil. If you over-oil a clock movement it acts as a syphon and pulls the oil from the bushings or collects sludge if the proper oil isn't used.
I hope none of the bushings have worn or collected sludge and worn the bushings. I picked up the clock at a garage sale for $45 and don't thing it's worth paying to have it re-bushed and a new movement for it is almost $500 unless I cheat and put a quartz movement in. I don't like Quartz movements in long case clocks as the chime are electronic and don't sound right and the pendulum always swings too fast. As a clock collector that just doesn't work for me.
