Attack of The Killer Frogs

sylvia at the beaver pond

We have a tiny pond next to our house, in which more and more frogs have found their home. Last count there were 14, and we also have a bunch of tadpoles, so we are definitely frog rich. Sylvia likes to look at the water, and the frogs, and a few days ago, she was laying on her belly next to the pond, dangling her hand in the water, and enjoying the frogs jumping away from her. Till suddenly, one of the frogs swam back, and broke the water surface very close to her face, which startled her enormously. She jumped up and started crying. She has not been dangling her hands in the water since. Attack of the killer frogs!

Too much going on here, including having a friend's 3yo in the hospital with E. Coli sepsis, which developed into HUS (Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome). She is on dialysis now, because her kidneys have stopped working, and it's going to be a long road to recovery. Please send positive energy her way.
