Scary day at Primary Children's

I woke up to Adele choking and gagging at 3:00 am- and she was barfing nonstop through the rest of the morning. At 8:00 am I called her pediatrician and they told me to take her right to Primary Children's. I was thinking this wasn't that big of a deal, but since she had thrown up so much and was acting a little delirious they were worried she was dehydrated. Of course this all happens when Ty is out camping with the scouts, so I packed her up and headed up to the hospital. The doctors first words to me are, "this could be as simple as a virus or she may have pressure on her brain and we may need to do a brain scan". What?! A brain scan- lets not throw that out there unless the procedure needs to be done. Anyway the doctor gave her Pedialyte, but that lasted about 2 mins. So they put a catheter in to check for a UTI. Adele just laid there and looked around during the whole process- not a peep! Next they put an IV in to get her electrolytes and fluid levels back up. This was so sad- she was really upset. After getting the IV in we had to wait an hour for the fluid to go in her system. Luckily she was sleepy so her and I snuggled in the hospital bed for the hour and then Ty arrived. They discharged us and told us to keep a close eye on her. They still aren't sure why she was so sick because she had no fever or any other symptoms. I am just glad she is a tough girl and is feeling much better.
I love that even though she is as sick as a dog, she still pulls a big cheeser for the camera!

I am not ready for mobility

Adele is really working on those first steps! She gets so excited before she takes the big leap toward me.

Share the love

I always thought that I was the cutesy creative one in the relationship, but Tyler seems to out do me every holiday. For Valentines Ty had a scavenger hunt all set up with funny poems at each stop. The first stop was a framed picture, the second was a heart rate monitor and the third was a jogging stroller. All of which I had asked for ( I gave him a few ideas not thinking I was getting all of them!) I am hoping for more good weather so I can put the stroller to use.
