I am totally spent, sitting at work just wanting to go home and climb back in bed and hide again. The Dancing Queen woke up around 6:30 a.m. vomiting and hasn't stopped yet. Since I have a huge memo due today and will be out of town all next week, the Mad Scientist had to make the hour drive back home at 6:30 in the morning after only being at work for half an hour. And of course, DQ only wanted mommy. Luckily, as I was leaving, she insisted on a nap, so it was okay that mommy was leaving cause she was going to sleep anyway.

TRex is supposed to be going with his Ma tonight to visit the Chef (5 to 6 hour drive). Now that is up in the air because TRex complained of a stomach ache twice AND he didn't really eat breakfast. That is never a good sign because where DQ never eats, TRex always eats. So, we are on the verge of having to tell TRex he can't go, thus disappointing him, the Chef, Little Car Guy, and Ma.  And all of this on top of poor DQ being miserably sick.

I am totally spent.


  1. {{{HUG}} Oh this is upsetting to hear! Praying that DQ gets to feeling better very soon and that TRex can stay healthy so he can go for his visit!

  2. Aw man, poor DQ. I hope this passes quickly and TRex doesn't really get it. Keeping my fingers crossed for all of you.

  3. What's that they say about when it rains? Dang girl. I hope you keep wine in your house! BTW, I have some leftover goodie bags for your kiddos. Perhaps I can drop them off in the next few days to cheer them up?

  4. There is always wine in our house thanks to my amazing sister getting me a wine rack for Christmas! And the kids would love the goodie bags!


Having a child with a CHD is like being given an extra sense---the true ability to appreciate life. Each breath, each hug, each meal is a blessing when you've watched your child live off a ventilator, trapped in an ICU bed, being fed through a tube. Each minute is a miracle when you've watched your child almost die and come back to you.
