Well, it was an eventful Christmas Day to say the least. After we opened gifts in the morning, Wavey took a really bad turn so I took her to the ER. After three failed IV attempts to get her hydrated, a number of blood tests and a chest x-ray, her flu culture came back negative, but she tested positive for pneumonia. They gave her a super-shot of antibiotics and by the next day when we followed-up, she was feeling 1000% better:
She's still convinced it was "the best Christmas ever" because Santa loaded her up with gifts which is good, all things considered.
There was a moment of awkwardness the first ER visit when the nurse asked me if I worked in the hospital because I looked very familiar. I responded, "Sadly, you just recognize me because my kids have a propensity to be sick on weekends and holidays."
We practically deserve a "Visit 10 times, get your 11th visit free!" card.
