What Happened Next

On Wednesday, Abby was sick and came home from day care.

Then we had a great weekend.

Saturday night, it took a turn for the worse. Abby was coughing periodically and when I went to check on her, she was on fire! I immediately burst into tears and took her to the ER.

She has/had croup and a middle ear infection. Her poor temp was 102.6.

When they gave her the antibiotics, she promptly threw that up all over herself and me. It was NOT fun.

But she is better now, after a few days of rest.


So, we have been home exactly 5 days together. I pretty much took no pictures until tonight.

There was alot of crying, whining, meltdowns, a smidge of potty training, and too much HGTV.

Luckily, she is feeling a little better tonight and the forecast is back to school (and work) tomorrow.

We even played around with hair tonight and did high ponytails!

How cute is she!!

Hair coming down after the ponytail.

Fake smile time!


I have been very grateful for having sick time so that I can stay home with Abby, but staying home with a sick child is hard work! She has wore me down!

That is very frightening when your child is so sick like that. We've spent a few times in the ER too with our kids and it was draining and stressful.

So glad and relieved to hear that Abby is feeling so much better and going back to school!
