Thanksgiving Week

It's come and gone but we had a great time visiting my mom and sister last week.  The girls were excited to go see Nana and their Aunt and of course to eat the good foods. We headed out Tuesday afternoon last week for our trip and made good time for once! We did hit about 45 minutes of stand still traffic at one point but other than that it was a pretty uneventful drive down, thankfully.  The week went by way to fast and of course as soon as it's time to go, we get one sick kid.  It seems every time we go over to GA something happens, argh!

Well H woke up Sunday morning sick, she was pretty miserable. We were supposed to leave that day but decided another day of rest before being stuck int he car for 7 to 8 hours would be good.  So we woke up early, 6 am on Monday and were prepared to leave...but no.  H got up and had so much gunk coming out of her eyes she could not open them because it had dried up over night.  It took about 10 minutes to get it all off so she could open them. 

Then we decided it would be best to try to get her into an urgent care clinic before leaving, so after finding one, and she and dh getting there only to find out they did not take our insurance.  Why we didn't think about asking BEFORE they left, I am not sure.  The visit would have cost at minimum $100 plus any testing etc and then meds, at home it would have been just the meds.  So we opted to wait and try to get home early enough and get her in on Monday.  Of course that did not happen either, we didn't get home until 6pm due to a terrible traffic accident on the interstate. 

Tuesday we finally got her in to get seen and what we thought was pink eye, was a sinus infection.  However the gunk is coming from her eyes :( Poor kid, her eyes are terribly blood shot and shes congested etc.  The doctor prescribed her some antibiotics so hopefully in a couple days she'll be much better.  Though I hate shes got a sinus infection, I am glad it's not something like pink eye that's really contagious.

Overall we had a great week, could have done with out the sick kid but if that was the minimal downside, I can't complain! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your families and/or friends!
