    Found It!

    Last February or so, Emily lost her medical alert bracelet. I tore the house upside down looking for it. I even tore some of my Mom's house apart looking for it. I finally gave up, assuming it got thrown away.

    Well, we bought new bedroom furniture and mattresses, so I have been re-arranging all the furniture in all of our bedrooms. I moved Elizabeth's box springs, and there it was! I guess the bracelet got wedged between the wall and the box springs. I know I had looked under the bed before.

    Emily now has 3 bracelets, 2 of them identical. When we found it, she said that we should save it for her sister, in case she is allergic to tree nuts, too. Doesn't quite work that way, kiddo!

    I wish I could have back the hours I spent looking for that darn bracelet.....

    Glad you found it! Lily used to take hers off at nap time and put it on her stuffed animals...I was always finding the thing in her bed. Look at it this way, at least you have a few backups now lol
