So the last part of our last post was a joke! Sorry! haha. I do have to say it handed me a few really good laughs though! The best was Kaitlyn. She came over to say hi to the kids with her friend Andrew and she wanted to show Andrew Kami's pictures from the hospital. So I just had her read the blog! They were just reading along and then they got really quiet and looked at each other and looked at me and I was just smiling. They started screaming and laughing and saying to Kami, "Your going to be a big sister!!" It was so funny. Then she asked if I had told mom and dad. I said "I texted them and told them to check out my blog, but I haven't heard anything from them." So she rushed home and told my mom to look. She looked and said "Its April Fools Katie." She called me all upset! It was pretty funny and all worth it! Haha. But Kami was really in the hospital. That part wasn't a joke!

The hospital

Well we had an eventful week! Thursday Kami was sick. She was throwing up and acting fussy. Tyson stopped by for a second and right when he got here she threw up. So I asked him and Steve to give her a blessing. The blessing was good, it told us that she would let us know if she needed more attention than we could give her. Friday she was throwing up a lot and I bathed her and wrapped her up in a towel. I laid her on the floor so I could get her a diaper and I came back and she was asleep! (Very odd for her) I got her dressed and sat her in her room with her basket of toys and went in a second later and she was asleep sitting up. So I started puting everything together and remembered she hadn't peed since the night before. So I called the doctor and got an appointment. We went in and the doctor had us try to rehydrate her there for and hour. after about 55 minutes the doctor was going to let us go home and Kami threw up all over! So the doctor admitted us to the hospital. They did a bunch of tests and along with vomiting and dehydration, Kami had influenza A, RSV and a urninary tract infection. She had to stay in the hospital for two nights. She was so miserable. The first day she slept all day and she would wake up and look at us and try to smile and it wore her out, so she would fall asleep.

This was the crib she had to stay in. She didn't like getting poked all the time...

It looks like she broke her hand or something, but they just had to wrap her arm where they had the IV so that she wouldn't pull it out.

I did think the hospital gown was so cute!! She was also very cuddly! Also very strange for her.

The second day we got to take her on a walk as long as she would keep her mask on. It was nice for all of us to get out. The last morning we got to take her in the wagon down to the church service they offer at the hospital, that was nice!

This picture just shows how not herself she was and this picture was taken the morning we went home. It was sad, but I am glad she seems to be feeling quite a bit better now that we are home and she is keeping things down. ```

NOW, if all of that wasn't enough, I wasn't feeling too well myself. But it didn't feel like the flu because I wasn't actually throwing up, but I felt the need. So I decided to have Steve pick me up some pregnancy tests while he was out getting me sugar cookies and twilight... and... I don't know how we are going to handle three. This was definately not in the plans right now. Especially since we planned a cruise for 7 months from now...

Who do I look like?
