Last night Brianna went to bed around 7 along with Emma and Micah. Lynae and Kristopher and I went to the living room to finish up teachers' Valentine gifts. Lynae crashed out on the floor and Kristopher went to bed about 8:15. He and Brianna got in trouble for playing at about 8:30 then all was quiet.
Until 9:30 when Brianna woke up crying. And SHAKING. She reminded me of when I was coming off of having the spinal done for the C-section and just felt like I couldn't stop shaking. Anyway, after about 10 minutes of her not really waking up all the way I was ready to call a neighbor and take her to the ER. I wrapped her up in a blanket and just held her for a while. Finally I set her on her feet and got her to walk a few steps to me and to give me 5 with each hand to know she was doing ok. Finally, right after that, she threw up.
I don't think I've ever been more relieved to have my kid puke!
At least, then, there was a reason for her to be feeling so cruddy. She laid with me for a while longer and by about 11 I put her back to bed and laid on the floor. She went into a restless sleep, needing reassurance that I was nearby, but at least she was feeling better and able to sleep. Around that time Lynae wanted to eat so Mike and I traded off and in just a little bit she was out enough for him to leave. She woke back up at about 1am with her heart racing just a little. As she calmed her HR did too and she was at about 120 when she had calmed down quite a bit.
Nothing like an eventful night to have you wake up-- tired!
This morning I got K, E, and L out the door and off to school and left Mike sleeping, Micah playing in his crib, and B drifting in and out of sleep still. After dropping the two older kids off to school I turned back around and came to pick up our neighbors who were supposed to ride to school with Mike. He decided to take a sick day since he'd been up with Brianna and had worked WAY too many hours already this week. Oh, yeah, and he can't talk. So I did his school run then made it back home.
Brianna got up just before 9am and was HAPPY and PLAYING. She wasn't interested in breakfast, but did eat lunch a little bit ago. She played fine all day and you'd never know she had a rough night and not felt good yesterday.
Hopefully the rest of the day will go well and she'll be fine!
Mike and I have our next MAPP class tonight and even though he has no voice he is planning to go-- we can't miss any classes and still complete the program. We hate to leave Brianna, though, if she's not feeling well!
