On Friday I took all 3 children to Birmingham for Wilson's Cardiology appt. He had a VSD (small hole in his heart) when we was born and 2 doctors lately have heard it again. So we get downtown and in the parking deck and we're going around and around and around the deck trying to find a park, when all of a sudden Emma Claire starts screaming blody murder - I am frantically asking her what's wrong, calm down and tell mommy what's wrong!!! Then silence and then....
she threw up all on herself and her DVD player (which was in her lap). My sister was meeting us there to help out, but she was in the wrong parking deck, so I was on my own for a few minutes. Luckily I had a change of clothes, a tub of baby wipes, an empty Target bag and some hand sanitizer. I got Emma Claire - as carefully as I could - out of the car and stripped her down, right there on the 5th floor of the 6nd Ave parking deck. I wiped her down, put her very soiled clothes in the Target bag and put some clean clothes on her. I did my best to clean out the car and wipe down the DVD player - not sure we would be able to save that baby! Katie arrived, and I told her she might want to take EC and H back to my parents house, but EC insisted on going with us. She seemed fine, so I relented. Turns out she was fine - my guess is that it was car sickness - combination of sitting in the very back seat, looking down to watch a movie and going around and around and around in the parking deck. She was ready to eat again and play and laugh, so no virus!
I have cleaned, spayed, disinfected, Resolved, wiped, sprayed again my car 4 TIMES and it still smells bad - any ideas on how to get the smell out - I have leather seats, but some must have gotten on the carper under the seat or something. I need help!!!!
OH yeah, the cardiology appt. - The ped. cardiologist listened to his heart and he said he can hear what the other doctors are hearing, then he did an ultrasound and said he was perfectly normal. What they are hearing is nothing - because he is extremely thin, they can hear the heart SO WELL (because there is literally nothing between the stethoscope and the heart) that they think they are hearing a murmur. I trust him - does this sound right to any of you nurses or doctors??? Anyhow, Wilson did great and EC and Henderson were awesome too - though with the amount that Henderson crawled around on the floor, we are bound to have a virus of some kind now! Thanks to Katie, b/c even though they were all good, 3 children 4 and under in a small doctor's office is still a HANDFUL!!!!
