I was So looking forward to Patton's party. Sarah, Heather, and I worked hard and planned a sweet Christmas party. We did everything that we needed to do ahead of time and all that needed to be done was to pick up Chick-fil-A on the day of the party. The problem was that Micah was sick. I had an awful night. I hardly slept at all. And when it was time to actually get up, Micah complained that he was dizzy. I wondered if he really knew what dizzy was, but I gave him some Tylenol hoping that he'd feel better. He ended up complaining of stomach problems before he got into the shower. I thought maybe it was an upset stomach….. He took a shower and shortly after he got out he vomited. At this time a stomach bug had been going around and I was just hoping that we would miss it, but at this point I was afraid we wouldn't. He acted very subdued and unMicah like. I cried because the rule is you have to wait 24 hours after vomiting to go back to school right?! I cried some more when I had to let Heather and Sarah know that I wouldn't be able to be at the party. I cried again when I dropped Patton off and he realized that I wasn't going to stay for the party. He cried too then. I happened to be dropping Patton off at the same time that Karen Capes was dropping Jonathan off and I asked her if she'd take some pictures for me. I was so sad to miss the party. It was the first one that I have ever had to miss. Everyone assured me that Patton ended up being ok and all of my friends made sure that he got attention and was helped and loved on. I am SO thankful to have pics of Patton at his party!!
Micah ended up being ok, and only threw up that one time. He had a snack, lunch, and was a "regular boy" before it was even time to pick Patton up…… Now to plan the Valentine's Party ;)
