We were home not quite a week when I noticed one night she had the beginnings of a stuffy nose. The following day she got progressively worse until we decided to take her to the ER. It was a Friday night of course. We were immediately admitted and she was put on IV fluids. She had a viral infection in her nose, thankfully it never went to her lungs. The problem was that because of the stuffy nose she could not eat and she was having some problems breathing. By Saturday night they had her off the IV and we went home Monday evening. Three nights. If I have to be honest Friday and Saturday were really hard on me - I felt like I was living what I feared the most. To make matters worse, Blaise wasn't allowed to visit, so I didn't see him for those three days either. I knew she did not have a serious problem and I knew we were in the right place, I just. could. not. believe. that we were there again.
Once again we have reason to be thankful to the medical staff of the Children's hospital at the University in Mainz.
Wearing my coat everywhere - I came home sick
