I don't know if you all remember the cronic sickness last year that ultimately led to the decision to have Lucy's adenoids removed. Well ... I wonder what else could be removed now that the sickness parade has started up again. I am very worried for her. She had first round of puking on Thursday night and by Friday midday I thought, well wow, that was a quick recovery for my girl. Saturday morning she seemed fine. Saturday afternoon she started seeming a bit unstable. Saturday evening she seemed ok again and I left her with her auntie Jen at night so I could go to a fund raiser for The Blue House and then continue for beers at an Irish pub (first time in over two years). I returned home around midnight and Lucy was sleeping soundly (in my room, but that's a different story). Around 2am the vomit fest began ... by 6:00 a.m. she had thrown up on EVERY TOWEL AND BLANKET in the house. She was vomiting so often I couldn't get these into the wash. I called my mom. At 6:30 I called the pediatric nurse who told me to bring her to the ER if she vomited again in the next 1/2 hour. She did. We went. Somehow walking into the ER was a miracle cure for her vomiting and her limp energy. She seems better now but ... I am on eggshells. Plus my poor girl weights less now then she did in May. We're going to her regular pediatrician to see if any thing else could be happening. Here is a photo from about 6:45 on Sunday morning when the girl had no spirit left at all.
