Angela Hill Grove of #I(heart)Logan reported:
Had a visit at Seattle Children's (Monday). Logan has a heart monitor for 24 hours and blood work done. Labs came back good. Hopefully, in a few weeks they can adjust meds and he won't be so tired.

WSU Lewis County Master Gardeners shared this post:
And this one from: Master Gardeners of Spokane County - WSU
A GROSS but timely topic: Summer travel means the possibility of picking up unwanted hitchhiking bed bugs. THEY ARE GROSS and very hard to eradicate...
High heat really is the most effective treatment for bed bugs, but this is not a do-it-yourself project and should be left to the professionals.
My advice - don’t bring your luggage into a hotel room or any rental unit until you have check beds, couches, and pillows for these critters. Other tips can be found .More...
