What a day!!

Well, no post yesterday despite the best of intentions, so I'll post today's and yesterday's outfits together. Yesterday started off badly from the morning. I slept in - miraculously, neither kids woke up early - which would usually be cause for celebration, but I had so much to do yesterday! Anyway, I rushed to get ready, and off to my fill-in weight watchers meeting since I missed my regular one on Monday. We packed everyone into the car, along with a day's worth of nappies, bottles, sippy cups and everything else a toddler and newborn needs and raced off, only to find that despite the WW website saying there was a Wed morning meeting, there wasn't. So, I carried on with the rest of my errands until I went to change Irini's nappy, and saw that her stomach had bloated to enormous proportions. It was so big, it looked like it was going to pop like a balloon any second. We quickly dropped Stephen off with my MIL, and then hurried off to the children's hospital. The doc's didn't know what caused it, but were suitably impressed by the size of her tummy, even taking some photos. They kept us there for 6 hours just to keep an eye on her, before sending us home, to come back today for a follow up visit.

This may sound shallow and superficial, but in all of the chaos and worry, I was so glad that even though I was rushing in the morning, I had taken enough time to get dressed nicely, and put some makeup on. I really felt that it made a difference - I felt more in control of the situation and more confident in getting my concerns across the nurses and doctors.

Anyway, we went back for the follow up visit today (a 3 hour wait this time) and they are very sure that there is nothing sinister going on, so they sent us home with nothing more than instructions to keep an eye on her. I then came home and took advantage of the fact that mum and dad were sticking around for a while to grab a much needed nap!
