Ok, so here is how my Long Weekend holiday started. It was about 1:34 am and I was hanging out with the boys Sunday night, just taking in some good tunes at a local bar, and enjoying the vibe. I got a call from home saying that Amerie was suffering a seizure and 911 was called. Oh great. Here we go. So Amerie got her very first ambulance ride, and Brooklyn was a bit jealous. Long story short, it appears that it was a febrile fever, and the seizure was caused by her body not being able to take the changes all at once. Some of it could have been cause by being on her own in the crib, or just the stress of being in the crib period, the heat alert that we’re under, and the air conditioner blasting. All in all, luckily it is NOT meningitis, but she did have a urinary tract infection, and is on meds for that. Safe to say, drama is over and the Sick Kids staff were ALL great especially under the circumstances. 4am in a hospital just is NOT a good look for anyone.
Brooklyn, for being a trooper through the whole ordeal got a bunch of new stickers from all the nurses she saw there. This is what she ended up doing with them. Pretty smart kid, huh?
SO… we were supposed to go to Ribfest out in Mississauga, but because Amerie was stuck home on meds and recovering, Brooklyn and I decided to hit the playground once again! Luckily (or unluckily) for her, there were other kids there today! We weren’t in the Twilight Zone!!
Brooklyn is still so shy around strangers, and I guess that’s a good thing. We’re not aiming to course-correct that anytime soon, but I do wish that she would at least talk to other kids more openly.
Either way, she’s still Priority #1, and she knows it too!
