My girlie was sick,sick,sick.

In less than 24 hours Miss Tanzi went from being a jubilant soul .............
............ to a sickly gal who needed to be admitted into hospital !
When I picked Miss Tanzi up from school ,after her Easter Bonnet Parade, I knew I had a sick little girl on my hands. She had just vomited in the playground and was now lying on the classroom floor when I arrived to pick her up!
After a valoid suppository and some ponstan (for a fever) she fell asleep in MrGee's air conditioned study. She slept til 9 pm, and then the runs to the toilet began. Every 20 mins her and I did the loo sprint!
In the morning I dosed her again and off we went on holiday.(I didn't realise how sick she was!) After an hour she needed to poopie ... so we nervously stopped at the side of the road. I was shocked ...... she had alot of blood in her stool! I knew we had to get her medical attention quickly, so we raced to the nearest hospital.
They admitted her immediately because she was so dehydrated...... and they gave her numerous IV's, and antibiotics.
After a full 24 hours of serious monitoring, Miss Tanzi was released.
Boy, was that a frightening!

Poor baby! I'm glad she's better, but how scary for you all!

I hope you can all relax and enjoy some time together now.
You will be in my prayers.
All the best to you,

That would be so scary. Sickness in our kids is the main cause of gray hair in my opinion.
