That night I camped in the family room with the little ones in fear that one of them would be sick through the night...I don't deal well on this type of clean up duty, so I wanted to be near them to avoid as much clean up as possible. No one slept well and with that and the dogs, I was up most of the night, but at least no one got sick.
We had a day of Basketball games on Saturday and somehow everyone was well, so we went. Emu surely wasn't himself, he was much too still and I was so worried that he was going to get sick. He complained and whined of his belly hurting most of the afternoon and evening, but he never got sick. Hawk has complained off and on about not feeling well, but he's never gotten sick either. Cardinal must have an immune system built of steel because I've heard not one work out of her.
Today, the weather here was quite nice. We decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and we headed out to fly kites.
|What fun is flying a kite, if it doesn't get stuck in a tree!|
Duckling stayed under Cardnal's wing the entire day. Hawk wasn't with us this afternoon, he was playing video games with his friends.
Even still tonight, poor Emu is STILL complaining of his belly. He often just throws himself on the floor and lays down where ever he happens to be. I hate when I start wondering if "something" could be wrong. Of course when he points to where it hurts, he points exactly where his abdominal surgery was a few years ago. That spot never seemed to heal the way they said it would.
|She was so thrilled with how high her kite was|

|Emu wanting to be picked up...AGAIN!|
|Poor Duckling, still not feeling well|
|Still under Carndnal's wing|
We have an exciting school week ahead. We should be caught back up on all our studies and we are participating in a "Flat Traveler" project and we are so very excited about it! We are looking forward to some fun outings over the next few weeks.
We should be getting Emu's Hormone Study Test Results back this week. I am so anxious about it...the waiting is so terrible, I'm so nervous for the phone to ring. I know when I see that it's them calling, my heart is going to sink to my feet. I don't know what to hope for and I'm sure no matter what, I won't be happy with whatever the results are. As always, I try to take it day by day...today, was a good day. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.
