I DO NOT like Emergency Rooms!

Last night we ended up in the Emergency Room with Hailey after she had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics that she had been given for pneumonia. She threw up (5 times) and then broke out in nasty rashes all over her body. The poor girl didn't even eat anything yesterday so all she had in her stomach was apple juice. After talking to her doctor, he advised that she be taken in to get x-rays and further diagnostics. It turns out that she also has a bladder infection. She's on a new antibiotic and a third kind of inhalant! YIKES! Hailey was a great sport. On the way home (after midnight) she told me that she never wanted to go to that house again!?? House huh? John and I agreed-no more ER for our family...unless they are sick enough to require an ambulance!
Thank goodness for great friends!! Natalie watched Isabella for us and stayed up late into the evening! Abbi shared her dinner with us which is always a blessing! Thanks girls!

The good news is that my children were very tired today. They woke up early (due to a coughing fit of Hailey's) and so they napped really well! All three of my children were asleep at the same time. That never happens...atleast not when I am not holding atleast one of them! I started and completed this art project that I have been thinking about for two months. It's for the girls room. The pictures are bigger than they look...oh I wish you could see the details! I still have a few more things that I need to do before their room is complete.
I made these hanging pom poms over the weekend.

Hailey sure does make some funny faces. Here's a nice one!! She doesn't like any medicine so this has all been really hard for her. Here she is puffin' away!
We decided that we needed to have a few minutes outside today and so the girls enjoyed these cute suckers and a few minutes in the fresh air!
It's all fun and games until.....
Someone starts coughing!
This is when we headed back inside!

Poor Hailey! Poor Katrina! Having sick kids is the worst! I'm not a fan of Emergency Rooms either. I hope Hailey feels better soon.

Your artwork is totally cute! You should sell artwork on your etsy site.

Cute projects! Hope everyone is feeling better already!

It sounds like you've had your fair share of sickness. Sending "healthy" thoughts your way. Also...those pompoms and pictures are soooo cute! Mark and Amelia are in the same room right now and I don't think Mark would appreciate pink puffballs hanging from his ceiling, no matter how cute they are! ;) I'll have to pick your brain when we get into a bigger house.

What a rough time with the illnesses! GREAT art. :) Just as a note, if you're interested... limiting (to the point of completely abstaining, even) sugar can greatly reduce the time spent in fighting illnesses. Difficult, but TOTALLY true in my personal experimentation on my own body. So hard to keep the kiddos off of it, though! I'm adding you to my blog list so I can keep up better! Hope that's ok! ??

I am so sad that your kids are sick, they are so cute!! I can't believe that the last time I saw you Hailey was a little bump in your tummy! I love that I can keep track of all the 'happenings' through your blog. And by they way you are still just as gorgeous as ever!

ps..Hi to John too!
