Sick Little Girl

Madison had her first "really bad" sickness this past week :( Friday she got a fever and then threw up all over Mimi's kitchen floor .... it was downhill from there. She literally did not eat or drink from Friday to Sunday, therefore, we ended up in an Urgent Care ER early Sunday morning because she was so life-less, had fever up to 104 and was dehydrated. Naturally, this was a general ER and not pediatric specialist ... so we weren't too thrilled with them. They tried to give her an IV of fluids, but didn't succeed since they couldn't find her tiny veins. I think we all cried together - such a sad sight :( She didn't understand what they were doing to her or why she felt so bad. We ended up going home with an antibiotic that finally kicked in Sunday night. She slowly started eating and her fever broke Monday (5 days later). She is slowly getting back to her normal self .... thank goodness, since we're headed out of town to the lake this weekend!

Other news ... they FINALLY, let me repeat ... FINALLY broke ground on our house!!! Our projected finish date is now close to Thanksgiving, weather permitting :-)
