Yikes. This last week and a half was a rough one. Monday morning Addilyn passed out when she fell, which even though it's happened a handful of times before, it's been a few months and it just threw me off. Made me a little more anxious, and made me worry about her and her health. We thankfully had her 18 month appointment that afternoon where the doctor assured me it was okay. The doctor wants us to put her on a nebulizer twice a day to see if that helps her nighttime cough, and while I am happy to be doing something that will help and anxious for positive results, I'm dreading the treatments and the expense.
Then Monday night in a matter of an hour I went from feeling completely fine to feeling absolutely awful. I had a violent, awful case of the stomach flu and literally felt like I was going to die. I rarely get sick, and have never been that sick before. Hence the no blogging. Any second I put Addilyn down for a nap or bedtime all I could do was lay down. I am far from a sympathetic person when Chris gets sick, but I think this has given me more compassion for the future.
That same day, my father in law had to go to the hospital with a heart scare. He is fine now, and everything is good, but a reminder that life is scary and you really have no idea when things like that could happen.
Chris then went out of town, his flight back was delayed and he was welcomed home with a sick baby up all night with the stomach flu. A throwing up one year old is just the saddest thing. And the most exhausting and messy too. All in all a week and half that I'd be happy to not relive again. Weeks like last week are bad, and I'm so happy for a new week. A reminder to be extra thankful when ourselves and family are healthy and when things are easy.
