Erin wrote me on Facebook and said that Nora had a big lunch, and gets to come home with us this afternoon! YAY!!! WOOOO!!!!!!

I'd like to thank all the friends and family that gave us their best wishes and support. Thank you also to our ancestors and God that made us strong in both body and spirit and have proven their support in everything we do.

April 6th, 2011

Nora was sick this weekend, but felt better on Monday and went to Daycare before coming home and being too sick on Tuesday to go anywhere. Finally we took her to the doctor's office, and they recommended we take her to the hospital. Apparently whatever virus is going around (there are a lot of kids at the daycare out sick) irritated her intestines and shut them down, so she wasn't keeping any food down and water was just going right through her. She became dehydrated, and has been on saline solution to get her hydrated. She's also had a tube down her throat to suck everything out of her stomach to give the intestines time to relax and heal, now its just a matter of waiting until she's well enough to start eating again, and she can come home. The three of us all spent last night at the hospital, and will end up doing the same again tonight, but with any luck she should be home Thursday.

Addendum: Just spoke with Erin from the hospital (I came home for some stuff), and Nora's doing great - the doctor's removed the tube, she's drinking clear fluids on her own, and talking up a storm again!
