Sick Sick Baby

We took Zoey to the doctor yesterday and she tested positive for the Flu type B! She has been so sick the last 2 days, and it kills me seeing her this sick.

It all started on Sunday when she started refusing bottles and food. She finally decided to try some mac & cheese for dinner and about 30 minutes later started throwing up. She continued to do so all night. I called the Dr. office yesterday morning and they couldn't work her in until 1:50. By the time we had gotten there it had been 25 hours since she last ate or drank something. They gave her a shot of Phenergan while we were there. We waited for 15 minutes after the shot and they sent us home with a prescription for Zofran. 

The Phenergan knocked her out so we would wake her up every little bit and let her try and drink some Pedialyte through a syringe and she would be back asleep before it was even all gone. I woke her up around 6 to see if she could stay awake for a bit and as soon as I took her down stairs she was throwing up again, so off we went to the ER. 

We got there around 8 and they quickly got us back to a room and a doctor came in not long after we were in a room. He decided to do an IV and get her hydrated again and give her a dose of the Zofran. 

I stepped out of the room with Rilan, he said he didn't want to hear Zoey cry, although we still could hear her. I had tears in my eyes the entire time. I knew she needed the IV but I didn't like hearing her screaming like that.

They got the IV in really quick and when we stepped back in the room she was already sleeping. I sat beside her the entire time wanting to just cry. Knowing you baby is so sick and there is nothing you can physically do for them is a terrible feeling. She started to perk up a little once the IV was done and she drank a little water.

By this time is was about 11 and we got discharged to come home. I am so relieved they didn't want to keep her so she could be comfortable at home but I am so ready for my baby girl to get well.

Thank you all for the prayers, we truly appreciate them!

I'm a terrible Blogger

I can't believe its been over 2 months since I posted a blog. I have Zoey's monthy updates, Thanksgiving, and Christmas I really need to get on and finish so I can publish them. I guess I need to just start where we are at now rather than going back and trying to update right now!

We have been pretty busy around here the last few months. I am ready for a break! Zoey will be ONE in EIGHT yes EIGHT days! I am loving watching her grow and see her personality blossom. She is such a joy. Rilan has taken on the big brother role so well. I was a little worried but I think he has grown so much in the last year, and has become a VERY protective big brother.
Zoey's birthday party has become such a big thing, I wish I would have just hired a party planner so I wouldn't have had to deal with some of the stuff! jk! It took me forever to find someone to do cookies like I wanted and finally found someone local to do them only to find out that she had been turned into the health department for running a bakery out of her home.(It's illegal to have a bakery out of your house in Texas.) So I found someone else very quickly after and she was going to charge an arm and leg to ship to Texas, so I just decided to do them myself! Its been a frustrating experience but I am loving learning how to do new things, and I think that cookie decorating will be fun to do with the kids for different occasions and holidays.

I had finally settled on a cake lady that is very talented and very reasonably priced, we had agreed on a cake and smash cake for Zoey and a week later I got a call that she too had been turned into the health department for running a bakery out of her home. I was so upset, but there was nothing I could do.

My sweet MIL went to several local bakeries for me to see what they would charge for the cake, not one was less than $400! So now I think I have resorted to having cupcakes made and then putting cute cupcake toppers on them! Its probably better that way, I just hate it when you have your heart set on something and then it doesn't turn out that way.

Her party is on the 29th and I have been in full make sure everything is getting done mode. Dax and I did her invites and they looked soo cute, only to print out HORRIBLE, we had planned on using a press printer and waited to long to get them done and so that was only our fault. I just hope everything else works out or I may cancel the party! ha! 

In other news, I joined Weight Watchers again yesterday. I did it back in 2007 and lost about 25lbs in 4 months. So I know that I can be successful if I just put my mind to do and do it! I WILL to stick to it and loose all the weight I have gained since having Rilan and Zoey. This time I am starting out about 10lbs less than I started last time so that is a good thing! I want to loose about 40-45lbs. I want so badly to be a good example for my children, so I am determined to loose this weight. I plan doing weekly updates to help hold myself accountable. Please follow me in my weight loss journey. 

I think that's all for now. Have a great Sunday!
