When I posted on Friday, Jodi was sick with a nasty stomach bug. It got so bad by Friday evening that we thought we were going to have to hospitalize her for dehydration. Thankfully God answered our prayers for her to keep some liquids down and she rested well on Friday night. I just couldn't bear the thought of having to take her to the ER! Needless to say, taking Jodi on her first flight early Saturday morning did not seem like a good idea. Our doctor advised against it, too.
Doug and I caught the bug on Saturday evening, and it is nasty. Our sweet little girl is obviously a little trooper because she seems to be able to handle this better than we do! She is keeping more food and liquid down today. And to top it all off she is getting her first two teeth!
We're trying to rest and recover today and eat very small amounts of food for some nourishment. Unfortunately, the difference in airfare is too high for us to reschedule a flight to Colorado later this week, and I'm not sure we'd be up to it anyway. It's exhausting to go up the stairs! We are so disappointed that our trip didn't work out and that I won't be able to attend CCWC this year.
I am planning on ACFW in Minneapolis in September, so hopefully I will see many of you there!Thanks for your prayers as we recover! I'll post a fun picture of Jodi last week sporting two ponytails!
