I may not be posting for a few days…Ellie has come down with a virus of some kind. We were in the ER for 4 hours last night with Ellie throwing up everything, and worried about dehydration.
She eventually was able to stop vomiting and we came home. The past 15 or so hours have been largely spent sleeping on the couch as a family (I was up all night with her, as was Ravi, B, and poor little Rhiannon got dragged along for the ride as we have neither introduced a bottle yet, nor do I have excess supply to allow for her to have bottles right now, anyway). Poor Ravi went to work, and subsisted on coffee and diet coke, but made it through.
We’ve been warned this is a viral thing sweeping through the young kids right now…there were two other kids in the ER with us and when we followed up with our pediatrician today, she said she’d had several more kids in practice that day as well. Obviously she missed gymnastics today, and will be home from school tomorrow.
Any way..if I’m absent from the blog for a few days, you know why.
Grandparents–she’s on the mend, but it’s been a long day. I assume tomorrow will be long too.
