Another... little update...

We ended up taking Noah to the hospital yesterday morning. I had gotten worried it was his appendix. He woke up just crying so bad . So I took Zoe and my niece with me to the hospital. Corey took Kain with him to fix the car. Noah was dehydrated really bad so they gave him 3 bags of fluids. And decided to do a CT scan . He had almost got that whole bottle of nasty stuff down when it all came back up. Finally we did the scan. It showed inflammation at the top of the appendix. But the surgeons said it would be OK till we got home to see our family doctor. So we are going this afternoon to see them. Hopefully they will not do the surgery. Both of my boys have a bleeding disorder. So something as simple as this would require a few days in the hospital.

The car...oh my goodness! It took 9 hours to fix my car. My battery had went dead and burnt out something in the ignition. So every time you would put the key in my car "thought" someone was stealing it. So I had to get another key,Can you believe a key costs $200.00? Plus had to fix all the burnt stuff.

But we are finally home. Thank you for all your prayers!!! I will let you know what the doctors say about Noah. Please keep praying that everything will be OK.




So it's Sunday November 30th and I'm writing this from the hotel lobby. Yes, you read it right...I'm still at the hotel. The past 2 days have been eventful to say the least. We were awaken to Zoe throwing up on my niece early Saturday morning ( about 3ish). Then Noah decided to join in with her. So 2 of my kids have stomach viruses! OK so we made it through that. Noah is still sick. He looks pitiful because he hasn't ate in 2 days. We get up this morning and get the car packed, check out and load up. Click,Click ,Click....is what my car is doing. It will not crank. Can you believe it? We get someone to try to jump us off but it still kept dying. I call around and it's Sunday and even in the busy city mechanics DO NOT work on Sundays. I finally get in touch with a Goodyear place. Yes they will work on it tomorrow!!!! I will cost around $600.00....plus an extra night at the hotel. Please say some prayers for us!!! We just want our car to get fixed in the morning so we can get home. The kids are going to miss school and Corey is going to have to miss work. And poor Noah needs to feel better!

I did get a cute Christmas ornament ( well I think it is) to giveaway to some lucky person. But that will have to wait till at least Tuesday. Hopefully our car will be fixed by 12 the we might be home by midnight!

We did have fun at the parade though...lol!

Hope all your troubles are better by now! HOpefully your car was cheaper than quoted and they gave you a free night at the hotel when they found out about your trouble! Okay probably not, but hopefully your little one is feeling better! Hope the rest of your week is better!
