The Week of Sickies

Unfortunately, Vivian's "sick" time did not end with her one upset tummy night in Orlando. We came home on Saturday and she seemed to be doing okay, although a little uninterested in food and drinking any Pedialyte. She got sick again on Sunday morning and the on-call nurse advised us to go to urgent care -- which opened at 11 am. Apparently urgent care here isn't a 24-hr thing! We got there a couple of minutes after 11 and the place was packed. We were seen a few minutes after our arrival by a very nice doctor. He gave Vivian a cup of Zofran liquid (anti-puke meds)and told us to get lots of liquids into her. We bought more pedialyte and tried again. On Monday she seemed to be doing a bit better, but on Tuesday she got sick again. We went to see the ped (not our ped, because it was a holiday week) and he told us to give her a liquid diet for the next two days. Although she didn't get sick again, we had a VERY unhappy child.

Around this time, Chris caught a really bad cold. Thankfully, I was getting over my cold. Not too much fun to have a household full of sickies at Christmas.

Christmas Eve/Day was pretty quiet here. Vivian LOVED her new toys!

This past week has been pretty low-key, although it seems like we've been in and out of doctor's offices. Vivian had to get her 12-month shots and I had to get an ultrasound. I've also started studying for my preliminary (comprehensive) exams. On January 20, 21, and 22, I'll be locked in a room for 4 hours on the first two days and 2 hours on the third day.

I'll leave you with some pics of Ms Vivian on Christmas Day! :)


  1. I was given an award for my blog and I'm passing it on to you. You can see it here if you'd like.

    Keep the blogs and memories coming!

  2. Vivian, looked so happy to open the paper and play with new toys. She is growing up quickly and we love her little expressions.
    SHE IS CUTE! Have fun, now is the enjoyable interative time.
