Wednesday...

It's Wednesday... I think... the last few days are a blur.
This bug we had was worse than we thought it was going to be.
Monday night, we were in urgent care for E2 and E3. They couldn't even drink water without vomiting it right back up. E3 puked in the waiting room.. on me... missed the bowl we brought with.
They've both improved greatly, but both are very tired. E2 slept all day yesterday and all night. E3 is quietly playing on the living room floor. Not the usual running around the house with limitless energy.
Last night I slept in my bed, without my blankets, because E1 had puked all over them, and her sister last night. It was the first time I slept in my bed since Saturday night.
Stuntman is currently sleeping. He went from the war to the stomach flu... not a good trade.

On other news...
Stuntman was very impressed and touched by the welcome he and the other soldiers received at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport when they arrived. He said it was amazing. Thanks DFW! The USO Girls are at DFW, check out their blog if you haven't before. Thanks Jamie, Lindsay and, Caroline!

Emma has turned out to be a great little dog. She does bark at Stuntman now and then, but snuggles with him on the sofa... she can't make up her mind. She is amazing with the kids... VERY tolerant and no food aggression whatsoever. She gets along great with our dogs and the neighbor's dog. She can weasel her little body out of the yard, but stays in the front yard. We need to work on the escaping.
Still not quite sure what mix of breeds she is. The vet said she was a "cute composite". Maybe pit bull, corgi, dachshund?

Hopefully, we can begin the kids R&R to-do list tomorrow. They want to go to Disneyland, Legoland, the beach, and the snow while Daddy is home.

Awww man, I was SO hoping this would just be a 24 thing and go poof as quickly as it appeared. :( Hope you all feel better fast.

Oh yay! I'm glad he had a good welcome home at DFW, he deserves it, as do they all.

Wow they have quite a list for daddy. I hope they get to do everything and more with him! This time must be so special for them.

Hubby and I were on a layover in Dallas/Ft Worth in January. Someone from the airport walked through to let us know a plane full of soldiers on their R&R from Afghanistan were coming out of gate xx and would be walking by...and to please show our appreciation as they passed. I don't think a single person wasn't clapping for all as they passed. Hope this was the welcome he received.......we were so glad to be a part of it!!!!

Sorry about all the health woes, TripleE. But it's good to know the bad stuff is on its way out... Now on to the To-Do list!! :-)

Jamie said...

Oh No! I can't believe he got the flu. Glad you have him home though. I'm so glad he got to go through DFW!

My internet @ home has been on the fritz, so I have some catching up to do! I hope when I scroll up this nasty flu bug is just a memory.

I'm glad Emma is working out. She is such a cutie!
