ER Visit #3

Yesterday was a tough day for Henry (and his parents). In the morning Meg took him to his doctor because he had a fever overnight and into the morning. They told her that he had a double ear infection and that she would need to give him a cold bath (think hellish, torture-like experience) to bring the fever down. It didn't work and his fever rose to 106°! Meg then was instructed to bring Henry to the ER. I left work and joined them in the waiting room. His fever went down while we were there, they took a blood sample for tests and gave him an IV. It was a long experience there (it always is). He was much more himself in the evening, but slept terribly. Hope this is over soon! He's got a short amount time to get better for Meg's birthday.

I searched some coins last night and did OK.

2,200 nickels produced eight Canadians (3 Ni), two US dimes, one US penny, one Ecuador 5¢ and one Philippines 5 Centavos (1944). The Philippine coin is a new one for me and is one of the oldest foreign coins I've found. It is in excellent shape, too!

5,250 pennies had twenty-nine Wheats, thirty-five Canadians, one UK 1 penny and one US dime and one Bahamas 1¢. The Wheats were:

1930, 1937(3), 1941(2), 1941D, 1944, 1945S, 1946(2), 1947, 1949, 1952(2), 1952D, 1952S, 1953, 1955(4), 1956, 1956D(2), 1957D(2), 1958D(2)

Found: 1 penny (at Target)
