- Jake and I meet for coffee in the morning while a friend is at home with the kiddos - not a bad way to start off the day!
- After coffee, I call my mom only to find out my dad was trying to get a hold of me to let me know that my mom had been in the ER and was being transferred to another ER's heart center. I get in my car and make the three hour trek to Grand Rapids.
- The moment I walk around the corner and see my dad, the doctor comes out, says everything is okay and they're sending my mom home. Happy that she's going home. A bit disappointed I had driven so far to find out all was well.
- I wanted to turn around and drive back home since Jake and I had planned an overnight trip for the next day, but was way too exhausted. Stayed the night at Heather and Adam's.
- 3 a.m. - wake up and drive for home after a few sleepless hours, hoping I wouldn't miss my alarm. A long, lonely drive back to IN.
- 6 a.m. - arrive home only to shower and get ready to leave in the next hour and a half.
- And we're off to Peoria, IL - a land of nothing, I might add!
- Jake and I enjoy some great sessions at the conference we attended. Called home to find out the girls had been vomiting and having diarrhea all day. Jake's poor mom!
- Finish the conference and return home, hoping the girls were better.
- Arrive home, no change with the girls.
- Jake goes to church. All three kids are sick so I'm home with them. I realize that something needs to be done for Maurah and Hayden.
- 1 p.m. - Jake and I enter the ER with the twins to stay for 8 1/2 hours while they were given IV fluids and having blood drawn, etc.
- Mind you, Jake and I are totally separated the entire time since we had two patients and therefore were in two rooms. Dreadful.
- Finally, the doctor decided not to keep the girls overnight, but to let us go home. Everyone sleeps well through the night.
- Girls are still sick. They've only been awake for 2 1/2 hours total today and when they are awake, we're forcing fluids down them.
- Just got back from the doctor for a follow-up appt. It's exhausting taking two babies to the doctor by yourself! The back and forth with both of them screaming......I have no words.
- Come to find out, they might have rotavirus. Joy.
Alas, Lysol has become my best friend and, at this rate, I bet our friendship will last quite a while.
