What to muse about today?

The Girls

Friday.  It’s finally Friday.  It’s been a long week.  And I’m kinda glad it’s over.

Monday was mostly fun, having both girls home, going shopping, playing, being with them.

Tuesday night was not fun.  Ashlin was sick again.  A lot.  The on-call doctor thought that she may have caught a stomach bug or something.  She was mostly better by Wednesday morning, but Tuesday night, she was not good.  Crying as she vomited, crying after she did, low temperature.  She would cry and then snuggle in as if for warmth and comfort.  She got some Pedialyte and dozed fitfully on me and then in the bouncy.  After a few hours, Stu woke me for my shift.  I stayed on the sofa with her in front of me, terrified that she would start vomiting again after nursing.  She didn’t, thankfully.  But neither of us slept well.

Wednesday was a recovery day.  As Ashlin was better, and I so needed sleep, we sent her to day care.  I thought we’d get a call, but we lucked out.  Maybe it was the wrong decision to make, but oh, it was a nice day not needing to worry about another human beings survival for a little while.  Worked from home, as I probably shoudln’t have driven a heavy motor vehicle at fast speeds.

Yesterday was crazy busy at work.  But I had ice cream.  Twice.  The Starbucks Mocha Frappachino ice cream bar is very nice.

And today, it’s game night!  Woo woo!

PS.  She’s babbling!

      Thanks! We’re going through another bout with Ashlin. Not sure what’s going on. She’s kept down pedialyte and a nursing session, but just woke up crying, almost screaming. I think we’re in for a long night… And there will be a doctor’s call by Monday morning, depending on how things go.

    oh dear. That is strange how it comes and goes.Sounds like a nasty bug the poor thing. It’s so hard when they are not sleeping and you are worried. Thomas was home Friday with a weird bout of vomiting..violent for about 2 hrs and then he was fine. I wonder if it was food poisoning. Katie fell at skating yesterday and we spent yesterday getting xrays of her elbow..thank goodness, no fracture. They actually gave her tylenol with codeine for pain. Drs. never give pain meds to kids, so I was happy she was getting relief that motrin didn’t provide. Parenting….always an adventure.

      Yeah, it is odd. I do wish it would stop. I’m tired, and tired of not sleeping… And it freaks her out, and I hate the baby not being well. I will be bringing it up – either calling Monday or waiting to see if it happens again. We do go in again to check her weight gain, and if she keeps puking all the time, it may not bee good… This kid is a troublemaker!

      Glad both of yours are good. It’s so hard when they feel poorly or are hurt. So good that Katie’s arm/elbow was ok!!
