Wednesday, March 24, 2010 - Update

Well, Olivia did get sick. . .very sick. She has had a fever since last night, awful cough, runny nose, vomiting. . .the works. Thankfully, I've seen 'glimpses' of my Olivia throughout the day and I even had her laughing this evening. I've been trying my hardest to keep her hydrated, but that's been a struggle and she isn't eating anything. The two times she has tried to eat. . . she's thrown it right back up. I'm sure we'll be off to the doctor tomorrow. Most kids will want to cuddle up in their mom's lap when they are sick. Olivia is not like that (and selfishly sometimes I wish she was.) She would much rather go lay down in her bed by herself which she did quite often. I would periodically go check on her. One particular time, I found that she wasn't lying down at all. She was lining up her little figurines on the side of her bed. What a great fine motor/hand eye coordination task! And to do it when she felt so sick! Then, she asked me to get the camera! She wanted me to take a picture of it. I couldn't help but chuckle as I was taking the picture and she was clapping for herself. Here they are in all their glory. . .the three Chipmunk sisters, Elmo, Grover and Cookie Monster!

Please pray for a speedy recovery! I can hardly stand to see my sweet girl so sick.

Awe. What a sweetie.

I hate being sick myself, but it's so much harder seeing your child sick.

I hope she feels better soon. I hope you and Ryan stay healthy too. There is so many yuckies still going around.

Feel better Olivia! :)
