We had a great time in New York with my sister and her family. We had a grueling 9 hour drive, but we were so excited to arrive. We hadn't been to Syracuse for 3 years, when we told my family that we were pregnant with Oliver. We spent most of Saturday snuggling with a very sick Waverly and eventually took her to an urgent care in the afternoon. She had an incredibly high fever and the beginning of an ear infection. Fortunately the doctor treated her with antibiotics. By Sunday afternoon she was feeling so much better. We went on walks, grilled out, played with the kids in the backyard, visited an adorable little lakeside town and went out for breakfast at a local diner this morning. It was a great trip! The drive home today was much easier, only 7 hours.
We are a little concerned about Waverly. She has had a decreased appetite the past 4 days. We aren't sure if it is caused by her ear infection or something else entirely. She typically LOVES to eat, but she has been pushing food away. Since she is unable to tell us if something hurts, it makes diagnosing her symptom much more difficult. We are hoping this is just response to not feeling well and not a new phase in her disease. This disease takes away so much from our children and I will be so sad if her enjoyment of food disappears.
