And Then...

We got the vomiting virus. Yesterday was a nutty day. On our way to the pediatrician office I told Sean I was nauseous but that I thought it was just from lack of sleep tending to Charlie the last few nights--I think I mentioned she had been diarrhea-prone the last few days/nights...anyway, I thought it would pass. It didn't. Without warning I got sick out the car window, going about 70 on the highway. Nice. A new low point for me! I was in a coma all yesterday and last night and missed the drama unfolding when Ty also got it last night right before bed. I woke up this morning to find my parents here helping with Charlie. Sean and Ty have been together all night in Ty's room. 

Yesterday afternoon I had some weird cramping in my stomach, (like the size of my entire stomach,) so I called the perinatal Dr. and went in a day early to check on the baby. There is a possibility with CCAM that the mother develops a "mirror syndrome," so if the baby is in trouble the mother can develop nausea, high blood pressure, etc. so I was afraid that is what was happening. They squeezed us in, checked me for pre-term labor, then did the sonogram and all looked fine. My vitals were good, so at that point we figured out I had a virus or food poisoning. The tumor had not changed in size, so this is still good news. It seems to be growing in proportion to her body, which crazy as it sounds is not life-threatening. I won't be going in today for the earlier appt. since I was there yesterday so this is my update. If I am absent from here for a few days it is because I'm trying to take care of my family!

Seriously!!! Are you just trying to get attention? hehe
Again...you may want to start looking at living in a bubble....atleast until it get warmer.
Get better soon and stay away from us! :)

Oh wow! I can't believe your day got worse after your text. I was praying it would only get better! I'm glad that Joy is ok...I'm sure that was scary! Praying for your other kids as well. Hopefully the virus only lasts 24 hours! This too shall pass! Love ya!

Answer me this: why is it that everywhere I turn families are going through one form of drama or another. I think it's because I was just oblivious to it before Christmas. I'm thinking of you and praying for healing and rest for you all.
