and I hope next week is better. I am not here to complain just to say last week was rough and I am glad to start fresh tomorrow. Ayda was sick all of last week, fever on and off, a cough, throwing up, not eating and no SLEEP at all! I finally broke down and called the advice nurse and she said it sounds like what is going around but if her fever wasn't gone by Thursday to bring her in. Of course, she wasn't fevered on Thursday which is good because I had other issues that day. I started a load of laundry, you know washing the sheets to get the germs out. I went downstairs and it was like a waterfall coming out of one of my kitchen lights. I ran to try and clean it up and realized I needed to stop the washer. I ran upstairs stopped the washing machine, grabbed some towels and went downstairs to clean up the mess...and what did I find another light pouring out water. I threw the towels down and ran back upstairs to get more, ran down the stairs (keep in mind I am seven months pregnant and I am not up for running much of anywhere) and what did I find more water coming out of more lights. By this time I had every towel in the house, I was grabbing bowls and asking Ayda to help. I felt so overwhelmed and I called my mom, who was coming out to visit her sick Ayda. She answered, I cried, she brought lots of towels and a couple things I had asked her to pick up for Ayda. We got the mess all cleaned up and then I called someone to fix my washer. Needless to say it was a long and exhausting day. I am so thankful my mom is so close, she took home ALL of my wet towels and washed them and even left some dry towels so we could showered and not have to drip dry. Friday, a washer repair man was coming, he spent time looking at the problem. Left, came back with a part....it was the wrong part. He should be back on Monday. Thanks again, we went to my mom's to do laundry. Friday night Travis and I went grocery shopping (yep, that is what we do on Friday night) and Ayda started to act funny. She said she was really cold so we wrapped her in Travis' coat and by the time we got home she had a fever again. By 11pm her temp was a little over 102 and I was panicked. The advice nurse said to bring her in to the after hours clinic in the morning. Of course, she had no fever on Saturday but we took her anyway. The doctor was really nice and Ayda was so good. We found out that she has pneumonia in one of her lungs...yep. Maybe I should have taken her in on Thursday, it made me feel like a bad mom. But she is on the antibiotics now and we hope things get back to normal. And by normal I mean a little sleep and having my own washer again. This picture wasn't taken during the event but it pretty much says how I was feeling!
