Today we were supposed to go to California. A long awaited trip for Ryan Margaret to see/meet Micah’s Mom and her side of the family, and to stay with Micah’s other Aunt and meet her friends.
We were also going to take Ryan to Disneyland for the first time! The CA cousin contingent and Ryan were going to tear up those Tea Cups!!!!!!!
I had Ryan’s toddler version of a maxi dress and straw hat ready for our trip to the OC! Vicki Gunvalson watch 2014 will not yet commence for us it seems.
Sunday I started to feel like crud and yesterday Ryan got the bug. I noticed that she wasn’t herself, I went on seizure watch paranoia high alert. Then this morning when she woke up with a fever and a green stuffed runny nose, the decision was made.
Fever’s and flights are a bad idea. Seizures can be brought on by fevers. And every time that we take a trip and Ryan is a little under the weather, she ends up hospitalized.
Not hospitalized because she is so sick (generally). Hospitalized because she has so many issues and most emergency room Interns get spooked and admit her to “be safe”. We postponed the trip and we are staying home and visiting our Doctor’s. As much as I support St. Jude’s I don’t want Ryan to visit. Even if it means we miss out on an opportunity to meet Jennifer Aniston or Marlo Thomas.
Like the responsible parents we try to be, Micah took Ryan to her Pediatrician and we called her OH Neurologist. I passed out on the couch. The advise is to keep watching her fever and keep her well hydrated. Everytime the kid looks at me too long or rolls her eyes I panic that it’s a seizure, so the advise for me is to take a chill pill.
Couch snuggles are back though, and those make me happy!
