Greetings from Paradise..Relaxed but Worried

Well, I am in paradise now and having a great time. We have 6 kids here in all, 2 of which are under a year old so we aren't very bored. As a matter of fact, I told my friend W (the other mom here) that we will need a day at the spa when we return!

I'm sure you know the routine....Feed everyone breakfast, Get everyone ready for the beach, apply sunscreen to everyone, get everyone back from the beach, wash the sand off, feed everyone lunch, change back into bathing suits, get in the pool, get out of the pool, dry kids off, change their clothes, get back on their suits after like 20 minutes!, ......I don't think I need to go any further. We will be tired when we return for sure. But that was too be expected and the truth is, it's worth it!

I really want to ask all my friends and family out there to pray for little K. As you know, she had a stomach virus 10 days ago and then was better for a week. Well, the first night here she woke me up and had thrown up. It was difficult for me to go back to sleep, because my mind just started swirling with bad thoughts of what could be wrong with my sweet girl. She was tired all day yesterday but she tried really hard not to be. She went to sleep last night at 7:30 and had a slight fever so I gave her some Tylenol. She got some much needed rest, but when she awoke she was really pale, extremely sweaty, and weak like she was about to pass out. She now feels much better after drinking some Gatorade and a tiny amount of breakfast and I am still waiting for my doctor back home to call me, so maybe I can get a little peace of mind or just direction as to what I need to do.

I'm not sure if all of things relate or not, but I just everyone out there to pray for K. Most people that know me, know that I am a worrier, my mind always thinking the worst. I am trying my best not to freak out, but you have to admit that all these things are just a little weird and unlikely. Even if she is better the rest of the time here, I think this deserves a visit to the doctor when we return.

Could she be dehydrated? S did that one year at the beach after being sick, and probably K just wasn't totally well yet. I am sure she will be fine, remember, lots and lots of liquids.

I have already prayed for her healing and to enjoy her time at the beach. Also praying for you mom to have a peace that surpasses all understanding. Praying things improve.

sounds like it could be a touch of heat exhaustion and dehydration. C has done that before and I thought it may have been his heart. Their little bodies can overheat and dehydrate very quickly- that would be best case scenerio! D
