Friday the 13th




(Before anyone gets worried Riley is just fine now.)
Friday night Riley started throwing up about 9:30PM. No big deal. About 10:30 she was STILL throwing up and starting to act a little listless. By this time I sent Jason upstairs to go to bed with Regan because I knew I would need to watch Riley anyway. I started noticing blood in the trash can and panicked a little! I called the ER and they said to bring her in. So at 11PM, we arrive and I was so rattled I couldn't remember their birthday. She was sitting in my lap throwing up as I filled out all the paperwork and did all the insurance stuff.

We got into a room where a nurse had to wake her up (pitiful!) to take blood and give her IV. Riley did not even look at the nurse for either needle which made them even more concerned. In the end she was very dehydrated and broken blood vessels in her esophagus caused the bleeding. We got home about 3:30AM.

However, today Regan has fever! Crazy!

I am still working A LOT on our house. Last week I painted the Study and am working on ordering the furniture for that room. Target has the cutest printed chairs on their website! Speaking of Target, their Home sale last week was AMAZING!!! I bought 6 shower curtains for my 2 bathrooms that need them. Ha! It was hard not to buy things that I might need sometime. After all I bought I am kind of hoping I find something to return to make myself feel better.

I have a furniture order coming in today for the Living room and Kitchen. It is slowly coming together!

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. We opted to cancel our dinner reservations after our late night adventure in the ER. We picked up sushi and watched Survivor that was DVRed from Thursday.(please go home Sandy) That is actually my favorite kind of "date".
