Chasing Babies... Growing in Grace: Vacation

Monday, May 16, 2011


Vacation... it has so many pictures associated with it. For instance, rest. Relaxation.

I suppose some vacations can be that for some people. Not this one.

Our plans to leave for Williamsburg, VA early Thursday morning were changed when my heart began consistently skipping beats Wednesday afternoon (the same day Sweet Pea began running a fever.)

I went about my baking and preparing, but left much undone till morning, just hoping to feel better then.

We set no alarm, deciding the rest was probably needed, but I was awake at six anyway. Around seven I got up and got going, feeding the baby and starting breakfast. But it wasn't better.

Around 8:30 we left for a local urgent care, supposing an EKG was a good idea. Nothing showed up, the doctor heard nothing. He sent us for STAT blood work just in case, but because it was STAT we couldn't go to just any lab. We had to drive all the way to the hospital where we started with outpatient registration. Suffice it to say it was nearly 12:30 before we were home again, the house was a mess and we weren't packed.

I was already feeling much better though so we flew into action. Two and a half hours later we were finally on the road, minus a handful of things we would miss later!

To be continued...

I hope your vacation goes great! That is a place that I would really love to go to with my family. We love history but live quite a ways from the east coast so haven't made it to Williamsburg yet.
