Yes. That question mark is there for a reason. You know how Amelia has been sick for pretty much this entire month? Or have I communicated that with you clearly enough? It started at the first of the month when her first molar started coming through. Then she had her shots. The she came down with a terrible congestive cough, fever, and cold. Then Hadley got pink eye and the same cold Amelia had. Then Amelia got pink eye. Then I though to myself...well at least they're getting all of this out of their systems before our vacation.
I should not have thought that.
For the past two days Amelia has been spewing vile liquid from both ends of her body. The poor little "poopsie" is so sick that I finally took her to the doctor today. The doctor had me take a stool sample so they can test her for the Roto virus. Since we are due to fly out to Florida on Wednesday morning she figured we might want to know if Amelia will have diarrhea the entire time we are gone. "So we know what we're dealing with if we decide to travel." IF.
We've been planning this vacation since Christmas, and we know that it is likely to be a once or twice in a life time trip. I'm predicting that Hadley will come down with this lovely virus on about Wednesday. Do I really want to fly for 8 hours and spend 10 days away from home knowing that my kids might both be sick?? Not so much. But I'm biding my time before I freak out. Because you never know. Maybe the Gods will come together on this for us. I've been praying a lot for a miracle.
So, anyway, there's that. Easter didn't produce the spinach and cheddar quiche with ham and mustard sauce followed by a lemon bundt cake. I had high hopes, but instead I held a crying a feverish baby all day. At least I managed to prepare for the Easter bunny, and aunt Rebecca helped the girls enjoy an egg hunt at the park on Saturday. I even cranked out a little skirt and an Easter dress for Hadley. Amelia's didn't quite make it since just when I got rolling with the cutting out of the fabric she started throwing up. Oh well.
I do have some fun pictures from the weekend despite the set backs. I'll post the dress when I finish the embellishments I have planned. It's just not quite finished.
