January – 2007 –
I am recovering from my cold. I was able to go back to daycare this afternoon. I have a little cough but I feel much better and I am able to get around the house more.
I got sick at daycare the other day. My mommy and daddy got really worried because I was vomiting and had a lot of diarrhea so they took me to the emergency room. We left at around 6:30 PM and we didnt’ get back until late, like after 10:30. I think that is the latest I have ever stayed up. I was very tired.
When I got there they gave me my own ‘gown’ that I got to wear around the hospital. It was a little revealing but it breathed well. While we were there I paced around the waiting room, because I heard that is what you are supposed to do. After I had enough pacing I decided to check out the magazines. You know, to have something to chew on. But most of the magazines in the waiting room were older than me. I mean, really, how am I supposed to keep up with current events?
Eventually we got called back and I met a nice nurse who talked with me a bit. I got a little fussy (nosey) so mommy and daddy took turns walking me around in their arms so that I could see what everyone else was there for. After I played a little the doctor came over and decided that I have the Rotavirus. It is not too serious but I have to stay home from daycare and I miss all my friends. Mommy says that I can’t go because I will catch them my cold, or something. Mommy and daddy are trying to give me lots of fluids so that I stay hydrated.
I had a picnic in the kitchen today. I ate my food by myself. I can’t be bothered to wait so I drank my milk while trying to pick up all my bits of food and put them in my mouth.
Mary had fun playing with her wooden table today. This was a gift from her Great-Aunt Maureen, and her great-cousins Natalie and Maggie.
Kate and I got together on Sunday and we played. We played dress-up with our hats. It was really fun and I can’t wait to play again.
I’m starting to learn to pull myself up on things. It seems that all the fun stuff to play with is on tables. Look out Ma and Pa!
Daddy and I helped out with the laundry today. Then I got stuck. Daddy laughed and said that it was a monkey trap and that he caught a monkey. He said that my cousin Ashley would love this game.
