The wind in her hair...

Sweet friends--Emma and Emeline. I just love to see them together!

Update Sunday evening: So far Emeline is not sick, but Chris is getting sick as of this evening. He is now asleep. Thankfully, though not even close to 100%, I am feeling MUCH better and am able to take over caring for Emeline. We have her medications her doctor called in ready to go if she gets sick.

Update Tuesday afternoon: Chris seems to have had a very mild case and is feeling much better. Emeline is still not sick....maybe she won't get it after all. I hope that is the case. I am still not 100%, but continue to get better every day.

Update Thurday morning: Our girl is still healthy, and I am amazed. I was waiting a bit to de-germ/deep clean the apartment, but I can wait no longer. I am beginning to believe she might not get it after all...yeah!!!! Chris and I are feeling much better.

I am SICK. I have some kind of horrible stomach flu. I am hoping that I am now coming out on the other side, because I am able to make this post. Seriously, I have not been this sick in about 10 years—which tells you I should be counting my blessings on that. Please pray that sweet Emeline does not get it. I will update if she does. Oh, and hopefully daddy doesn’t get it either. I had her doctor call in some medicine just in case. Poor sweet baby doesn’t understand why mommy won’t hold her. Of course she was eating out of my plate right before I got sick, so I am just HOPING she somehow doesn’t get it. On another note, my doctor actually came to our apartment to take a look at me—how’s that for great service. They were having some kind of doctor strike all over our area—typical European!!. He tried to call one of the house doctors who will come to your house, but they were all on strike, so he said he was coming himself. We are less than a block from his office. Still, it felt good to be so taken care of. He even gave us his home phone number in case things were to get worse. He also called a doctor he knows at a local hospital so he would be informed should I have to go in. I have 2 busted blood vessels under my eyes, and I have passed out at least 2 times that I know of…fun, fun, fun. However, I am keeping down some fluids, so I am not planning a trip the hospital any time soon. Again, I hope I am over the hump as I certainly couldn’t have done this post even this morning. Please pray that it is so!
