Carnival Week 2007: Lundi Gras and Mardi Gras

For our household, Carnival ended on Sunday.

The stomach bug that has been rolling around town hit Will… HARD. Lundi Gras, we managed to get a babysitter so that we could go out to dinner… only to cancel as Will worsened. For two days, the little guy couldn’t keep anything up or down. We came close to taking him to Children’s hospital several times. Our pediatrician called in prescriptions for us (phengrin) and between that and fever-all, we were able to control his nausea and fever. (Note: Will doesn’t take medicine… so both are suppositories… how’s that for fun?) Us adults weren’t feeling 100%, either, so we all took a breather. Mardi Gras excitement can take a lot of energy!

Matt and Laura left on Tuesday and we were so happy to have shared the holiday with them. Thanks!
