Happy Valentine's Day - the good and the bad

Well, the bad news is that my sweet little Morgan is sick. My precious child that has never had an ear infection, never thrown up, never had anything more than a cold in her 5 1/2 years just took her first trip to the hospital. She is okay. We just had to go to the hospital because of course she had to get sick on a weekend. She woke up at 4:30 this morning complaining that her ear hurt. This was followed by some throwing up and a fever. We waited a little while to see how she would do but decided to take her in. They were great and had us in and out. She does have an ear infection and the dr. thinks that the pain from the ear ache is what is causing her to throw up. They gave her a prescription for an antibiotic and some ear drops and we are also giving her Motrin. So, all in the same day she had her first experience with an ear ache and throwing up. I guess I should be happy that we have gone 5 1/2 years without having to deal with any of this, but it is still so hard to see her poor little sad face. The good thing is that she seems to be getting some relief from the ear drops and Motrin and is now sleeping. Lets hope she sleeps through the night and I don't have to wake up and wash sheets and blankets again.

The good news for today is that we had our taxes done this morning and we are getting a pretty nice return. My sister stayed with Morgan for a few hours since we had made the appointment a while ago. This money will really help with the adoption expenses!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
