What a weekend! This weekend I had my Christmas Card Special. In 2 days I had 24 photo sessions. There was a lot of
work, worry, prep last week leading up to the sessions when my daughter who has not been sick in years (seriously) , suddenly came down with Strep Throat. No problem, we'll just give her the prescribed antibiotics and she'll be up and running...right???? Not this time. This all started on Monday, by Friday she was still running a fever. I was told not to worry about it, maybe the meds were just taking a little longer to take effect. Saturday she was still running a fever so while I was at the sessions my husband took her to Urgent Care. They said, no problem, give her fluids and rest. Saturday night, high fever and lethargic. Sunday morning she was fine and seemed normal, but by the time I got home on Sunday night....high fever, lethargic. I took her in this morning, got chest x-rays and discovered she has pneumonia. Now my counter looks like a pharmacy : 3 different antibiotics, Singulair, and 2 different types of Albuterol to be given with the nebulizer every 4 hours throughout the day and night. She also got a very PAINFUL antibiotic shot on her bottom..poor girl is limping around here. Hopefully she will feel better soon. I am not used to her being the sick one. One thing she is thrilled about is that she is on strict orders not to go back to school until next Monday. I don't think I ever saw her smile so big! I am just so thankful we have great medical insurance, a wonderful doctor, and that I have the ability to take care of her. It melts my heart whenever she looks up at me with those big brown eyes and says (several times a day) "Thank you for taking such good care of me Mommy." Sniff!
Anyway, the photo sessions were Grrrr8! Each family was terrific and so much fun. Thanks guys! You were so relaxed and fun and full of terrific ideas! I loved it when so many of you said "We'll just play and let you take the pictures! One couple even got on the slides for me. How cool are they???? I hope that you all had as much fun as I did.
I have lots and lots of editing to do, but will post photos soon.
