welcome to china, here is the emergency clinic

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

I know, I said I would post pictures, but this time I have a great excuse!  Seriously!

I think a virus passed through our little family.  D and JB were a little cranky, nothing major, but me, well I made up for their lack of symptoms.

The toilet was my friend on Monday, sad but true.  I don't even want to know how many times I threw up that day, all I know is by the end of the day I had no color, couldn't keep down water, and my heart was racing.  So, that night we were headed to the emergency clinic for me to get fluids and miracle tummy drugs.

To find the clinic we were told to look for the Hooters and go upstairs.  Hooters and doctors eh?  I wasn't sure if these directions were for real of just an invitation to some college frat party.  Turns out they were for real..  thank goodness because I don't think I was in any condition to do a keg stand! So while getting loaded up with fluids I told D he was welcome to head downstairs and get some wings and beer, but he said no.  I guess he was smart enough to realize that when I had all my wits about me I would have never let him live down eating wings while I was seeking emergency care.

The good news is that I'm now among the living, the unborn one is doing great, and I know where to get wings when the craving hits.
