Sorry I’ve been MIA for the last week, I’ve been trapped in a Stephen King novel-type situation involving a stomach virus which is capable of completely eradicating the human race and turned my innards and those of my eldest, completely inside out.
We enjoyed a little R&R at the local hospital, where we were not able to stay in the same room but were both on the Pediatric Unit. Which was awesome because my room had an outer space theme complete with aliens and a moon man on the ceiling and all I wanted to be growing up was an astronaut. Aubrey got stuck in the circus room with the creepy clowns. She’s so brave, I would’ve been scared to stay in that room by myself. Not that she was alone, Shuggie or her Daddy were with her the whole time.
So let’s see, inpatient hospital stays for my family this year: 5.
Total dollars spent on healthcare: 1 bajillion.
Getting to fulfill my Space Camp dream of going to outer space: priceless.
