A Case of The Sickies

What a weekend! Elaina made it back to South Davis, and just in time! She tested positive for C-diff B. It's been tough on her to deal with. She's been sleeping quite a bit, but I guess that's to be expected. I think she was glad to get "home". She's been doling out smiles to her favorite nurses at South Davis and they are all SO happy to see her back. She's still having times where she seems to be hurting, but they are taking very good care of my little Elaina bug! I got home and then GOT SICK! It started out as a migraine and then turned into a pretty nasty flu. I've spent the entire weekend in bed with a fever and aches and throwing up. Not fun. Ben and I are staying at my friend Colleen's house, so at least there are other adults in the house that have been able to pick up my slack and help me out with Ben. He was super sweet on Valentine's day. He gave me some roses and asked me to be his Valentine! So cute! I found a giant stuffed ladybug with hearts on her face that I had to buy myself. It's bigger than Elaina, so I don't think I'll be taking it up to South Davis any time soon. It can stay at home and get snuggled by me or Ben whenever we miss her. I've got pictures I want to post, but it will have to wait. I'm still not feeling very good this morning and I just don't have the energy to do it! :( Anyway, I've been feeling guilty all weekend that I didn't post that Elaina was out of Primary Children's, so please forgive me!
I'll post more once I'm feeling better!
Hugs,
Hollie, Ben and Elaina

Dear Hollie,
It has been forever since we last talked and I miss you!! I'm sorry you have been so sick. I hope you feel much better very soon. I have been keeping up on what's going on with Elaina and I'm so glad she is out of Primary's. You've seen enough of that place to last a lifetime. Please call me if I can do anything to help.
Love you, Sara

I'm glad that it sounds like she is doing better tolerating her feeds. You need to post more pictures of that sweet little girl (like I can talk much though).

Hope EVERYONE gets feeling better soon!
