I Take It Back

I'm the kind of mom who holds a secret wish that my kids will sit still and be quiet...for more than 32 seconds. I almost relish when they have a fever and lay on the couch and watch TV. Being still AND quiet is a very, very rare occurrence around here.

Addie has lost 1.5 pds. in 48 hours. Kindof a big deal when you only weigh 40 pds. She has thrown up so much that I just want to cry for her. She has been so sick that it made me nervous. After our trip to the doctor, we got to sit at the pharmacy and wait for presciptions. All while Addie cried, refused to get stop laying on the floor and threw up everything in her stomach--which was watery acid.

As I watched her yesterday, I realized that she laid very still and was tip-toe quiet. And you know what? I didn't like it. I just wanted her to be energizer bunny Addie. My crazy talker Bean.

She's perking up today. She asked me to buy her Trix and Bagel Bites. Definite sign of better health. I'll know she is 100% when she starts talking for 18 minutes straight without pausing for air. I think I'll be more patient with all the talking. At least for a day or two.

Yeah, when you lose 1.5 pounds in 48 minutes, throw up everything in your stomach, and DON'T TALK AT ALL (!!!), it's time to see the doc.

(I meant to say 48 HOURS.)

Just pitiful! Hope she's talking non-stop soon!

She just looks so sad. She has the same look on her face as she does in a picture I have of her sitting on your lap at Emily's reception.

I sure hope Miss Addie is doing better now- we're thinking about her :)
