Ahhhh.... Life

It's never quiet! I was eagerly waiting for the end of the day yesterday because vacation would officially start. Or would it? Nope. I couldn't get everything wrapped up so went back to work this morning for a while. Brought Maia with me. Mark took Matthew to the air park with him (tomorrow's the Fly-In). Maia was very patient (not that she had much of a choice). By the time I finished, I noticed she was flushed and warm, running a low grade temp. She's been irritable and lethargic lately, too. Mark and I decided that a trip to the ED was in order. Don't want to take any chances. So, that's where Maia and I spent six hours today. X- rays of the head and stomach, urine and blood tests, head CT, she had it all. Thankfully, everything looks ok. Her ventricles are slightly smaller now when compared to the last CT (before most recent shunt revision), so that is good.
Came home in time to get dinner ready. Matthew came home with a headache which we chalked up to being outside all day with dad. I gave him some Tylenol, he ate a few bites, said he was done, and proceeded to throw up all over the kitchen floor. Ugh! That upset him a lot and we finally got him calmed down.
Mark's mom called shortly after to let us know that grandma is not doing well. She just turned 101 a few weeks ago and it's not that we expect her to be with us indefinitely, but it's still a sad thing. We love her very much, she is a beautiful, warm, funny lady!
So... Vacation is not starting out very relaxing - lol! If you Think of it, would you say a quick prayer for the kids and for grandma?
