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! :)
