When does it end?

Just got back from a 10 day "holiday" to BC. Not much of a holiday when every day is super busy with events related to family reunion/parents anniversary celebration but it was fun nonetheless. On Monday of our holiday my little girl had a very high fever - seriously, so high that even my skin was burning when I touched her! Dr. at the walk-in thought it was the flu. Then the non-appetite started, and the many, extremely runny poops. Then the fever and runs suddenly stopped and there she is, at home now, covered in a rash. Turns out the walk-in dr. in BC was wrong - it's not the flu, it's roseola.

Seems I've been to the dr. so frequently with her since her birth - croup, milk sensitivity (that was discovered after multiple dr. visits and nasty lab work), and now this ... in addition, of course, to her regular check-ups and vaccinations. So, when does it end? I guess never. I guess this is just the beginning of my new life as a mom? :) Ah well, it's all good. I love my little girl. And, as I've said before, by the time baby #2 comes along, we'll be pros on baby illnesses and sensitivities. :) This is just training for future years for us! :)

And what about family? There are always issues when family interacts as well aren't there? I guess it's all part of being part of the fallen human race and being in relationship. But it is also how we grow in relationship so I guess we will grow best if we embrace the good and the bad and love each other through it all.

Well, I'm going to take advantage of my daughter napping and try to get some things done around the house (like unpack from holidays). Until next time ...
