Know-it-all scoutmasters and another trip to the hospital

Well the fourth week of campers was an up and down week for me and Jess. I was still very sick from sunday's white water trip down the river so all day sunday and monday i spent in bed trying to get over my sore head and the flu. As i cant take pain killers the two days were very painful. Jess was also sick these two days so everyone on staff thought we were allergic to America.

My golf class this week wasn't as good as the past week, which makes my job harder but fun. I make all the kids that cant play too well tee off at the ladies tees which they didn't like (haha). I have scoutmasters that come along every week to be an extra adult (boy scout stupid rules) which this week wasnt helpful at all. At the driving range I show the kids a basic swing as well as 3 things to work on (for most kids thats alot to work on). But the scoutmasters that came along this week thought they knew everything about golf and stuffed up my program. They pulled kids aside and told them the opposite from what im trying to teach which is far from basic technique. Ohh and then one kid broke 3 golf clubs in 2 days.

Jess didnt have the best week, i havent seen anyone sick so much in my life. She was just getting over the flu until she started throwing up on thrusday night and all through the night. She wasnt feeling any better on friday and had pains in her tummy so we went to the ER. They put her on a drip and gave her a pain relief which when it hit her she was in Disneyland haha. After 2 bags of IV drip she was feeling alot better so we headed back to camp.

Its saturday night at the moment and everyone is out of camp until tommorrow but we stayed at camp so Jess could start to get better. So today i found a site online that you can download pretty much any rugby game you want, so i downloaded the lastest game between NZ and Australia. Which in the end was not a good result for me but Jess was happy and it gave some of the American boys a glympse of rugby.

JESS says - Hey. Mum and Dad if you are reading this before I call you it is because the lines are down. Everything is ok and I am feeling much better now. My head is a little sore and i'm still a bit weak and tired but apart from that i'm feeling 110% better than the other night. Brian is taking good care of me :) I will try calling again in the morning and I'm sorry if you have read this blog first and freaked out!

Lots of Love

Brian and Jess

Well I'm so pleased the result of the All Blacks match put a smile on someone's face!! Unsurprisingly, the nation has gone into mourning. Just so that you don't think it's just you, Mum and I have both had 3 days off work last week with the flu which we caught from our gorgeous grandaughters (yes, that's more sick leave than I've taken in the last 4 years!)

Brian, you can always invoke the 30 foot rule! The other adult is there as a "chaperone", not as an assistant instructor, so tell them they can accompany you but must remain 30 feet from your students (or hand them the merit badge book and tell them they are in charge!)

Keep well, keep safe, and just keep looking forward to Vegas and LA.
Love Mum & Dad H

Hi guys, Jess I hope you're feeling better and yes Mum did freak out - what a tough time you are having - flu,nose bleeds vomiting and ER drips. Mum can't wait to get you home so she can look after you. The Wallaby win was great (sorry Brian) Broncos won, Titans lost & Matty Bowem is in the QLD team for Origin 3.
Hope you have a better week.
Love Mum & Dad
