Due Date and Rotavirus!

So today is my due date. I know it's going to have come and gone, this time without me giving it more than a thought or two... Very different than with Libby.

I'm not anywhere near where I wanted to be at this point, but I guess what needs to get done will eventually get done. This weekend threw me way off!! Why? One evil word... Rotavirus. :(

A terrible stomach virus that lasts up to a week or two!! And Libby got it! We took a chance not getting the vaccination for it as sometimes kids get it from the vaccination itself, and I guess I'd rather have a 2-year old with it than a 2-month old, if you have to experience it at all.

Matt is now convinced that Ty will get the vaccination and I'm just about on board with it... after I talk to the doctor a little more and get some more info.

I don't know where or how she got it, but it is bad!! We ended up at Children's hospital on Sunday (she started throwing up on Friday) and we were just released this morning (Tuesday). We didn't expect that long of a stay (didn't even expect an overnight) but I'm glad we brought her in as the IV helped replenish her fluids quickly. I'm so glad to report that she is almost back to her old self and it's soooo good to see her smile and hear her little voice talking again!! Amazing how much I've missed it these last few days. I LOVE MY SWEET GIRL!!

Over all I'm sooo thankful that I haven't gone into labor early or on time as it will probably be another 5 days to a week before our house is rid completely of every last germ from that horrible monster and I wouldn't want Ty coming in to that and worrying about him getting it. I would also never have been able to send Libby away when she needed me most, makes me want to cry just thinking about it. So, thankfullly the Lord has good plans and his timing is perfect. Though I wish we'd never had to experience it, I know He is working for our good through it and I'm SO glad He didn't plan for her to have it when we had a newborn in the house!

Now we're just praying that Matt or I don't get it. Not as common or as harmful in adults, but it can happen.

Thanks to everyone who has been praying!

Now to house cleaning and dissinfecting and more prep for baby (with hopefully a few days to rest and enjoy some of this nicer weather we've been having).

Don't have any pictures. I debated bringing the camera as Libby looked so pitiful, but I didn't think this was something I wanted to remember, though she might have appreciated the pics when she's older.
