Our Easter Weekend
Our Easter Weekend was pretty busy! Friday night, we went to Papa and Grandma's church for their annual egg hunt. That is always an interesting event, with children pulling out all the stops to get the most eggs. Safety first!!! Saturday, we went to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa Nef (my mom's parents) and my brother and his wife. Sunday, the kids woke up to pillow pets (why didn't I think of that invention???? $$$$$$) and more candy. Jackson, Kaydon, Colton and I went to church with Grandma and Grandpa. Braxton stayed home. He had been throwing up pretty violently all night and into the morning. When I got home after Sacrament, I layed down with him and tried to help him get some rest. It didn't work. The vomitting continued. By the afternoon, it was obvious that he needed to be seen. Off we went to Insta Care. It was apparent right away that he was a pretty sick kid. They hooked him up to an IV and gave him some intravenous medicine. It took two full bags before he had the urge to pee. Poor kid. They said that with severely dehydrated people, it usually takes half of one bag for them to feel the need to urinate. Whoa! I'm not sure what it is with holidays and my children feeling the need to become extremely ill... but I'm kind of done with it!!! He is feeling better this morning, and despite getting so sick, I hope he enjoyed his Easter, too!
