That about says it. India has been sick since Sunday and is throwing up. Yeah. And let me just tell you that I am not one of those wonderful mamas that will rub her child's back and say soothing things while said child vomits. No. I can't even be in the same room because I have a completely wimpy gag reflex.
So, day 5 and we are all tired of this. We are waiting on the results of blood work for her and hoping that there is a simple solution to this.

So we would all gratefully accept any prayers sent on India's behalf.

On the other hand, Ahnalin is FINALLY starting back to ballet today. She has physical therapy after school on her arm, and then ballet. She is beyond excited! She has missed her dance classes so much.

She informed me yesterday, when I picked her up for school, that she had been swinging on the monkey bars are recess! NO!!!! This mama has HAD IT with doctor visits, hospitals, labs, surgeries and X-rays! So, we are encouraging her to be wise and stay off the monkey bars for a while. I think she is "mother deaf" when it comes to that kind of thing.

I have tons of sewing to do, but I think I am going to do something rare. Yeah. I am going to start on a top for myself. Let's see how far I get.

Oh.....and next post will be "100" for me! So.....stay tuned for a celebratory giveaway!

Thank you all for the prayers. Please keep them coming!

Poor India. She has really had a rough fall. I hope the blood tests come back quickly and that a solution is found.
My little monkey, er... uh....grand-daughter broke her arm a month or so ago when she fell off the monkey bars at school. So do tell your little monkey to STAY OFF.
Good for you sewing something for yourself for a change.

Poor dear well I hope it starts to get better and that she has a great time at ballet...and that you get a wee break to sew at some point.

India just can't seem to get a break. Oops! wrong choice of word in your family with Annalin.

I hope everything in your family get back to normal soon. You deserve it!

I can 100% understand at not being that kind of mom that is there "rubbing the child's back while the vomit".
i can do it right now just because is only 2 1/2 years old but when hubby is sick, i cover my ears so i wont hear anything.
i am so glad to hear that Annalin is doing much better but i would keep praying for you girls at all times.

Oh Man, Sivje!
I was just thinking that India has been doing pretty well with sickness.:( I'm sorry to hear your girl is sick and will pray for recovery soon. Is it the flu?
I can't remember if I posted about the girl's costumes, but they are gorgeous!! Great work!! My Mom in law just made Anna a pilgrim costume for a Thanksgiving feast at school. As it gets closer to Thanksgiving, I'll try to post a pic on the Bethany site.( or have our son do it for me!)
Take care,
