Calm Amongst the Chaos

Mama of 5 seeking calm in the chaos

Lily hasn’t vomited since 9pm last night. I think we are over the worst of it. She still has a low fever so I kept her home from school, but I am pretty sure she will be able to make it to school tomorrow for their field trip to the zoo.
Lily is though, a turkey! I got some breakfast in her. Just a little, I didn’t want to overwhelm her, but I got some malt o meal in her and a yogurt smoothie. I knew she would have to pee and I still needed a urine sample from Tuesday’s study appointment. Today was the last day to get it in, so I sat with her on the potty for 30 minutes, nothing. Then I thought if she were comfortable laying down maybe she would go. So I sat for 2 hours with her on the floor naked. I had a pad under her and wouldn’t you know the minute she rolls onto her tummy she starts to pee. I flip her over fast, but it was too late. She peed on the absorbent mat. Now there was a dropper full size of pee on the plastic part of the mat and we poured it into the cup. I know it was hardly anything, but anything is better than nothing. But this is where I say she really is a turkey. After all that. I was pretty bummed considering I sat there for hours this morning and missed her pee, but then I put a diaper on her and she practically fills it within minutes of putting it on. See she is a turkey.
I sent Andrew on the 45 minutes drive to drop off the tiny bit of pee and to pick up her klonopin. I would be too embarrassed to show up with that little bit of pee.
Anyway, we got it in on time. Lily is on the mend and Mommy will get to go to Bunco tonight. Cheers!
