Well, it happened! The night before we left Guatemala i got VERY sick! To spare you the gory details, just think back to last year's pick up trip! However, the big difference was...it only lasted a few hours. I started my Porcelain Adventure at around 10 pm and it ended about 1 am. I am pretty sure this Adventure was from the only thing in Guatemala that i dared eat/drink...coffee with milk. (milk! not smart!!) Which means this episode was not viral and mark and Paige were spared the violent disease. So, the next day i was just a bit weak and tired while traveling. We flew into ATL and then spent the night in a hotel. As is our ritual, we ordered a big 'ol steak and salad and chowed down on some good American Beef!
Our arrival home was wonderful! I promise pics as soon as i can muster up the energy! Right now we are hunkered down nursing a very very bad case of the FLU! Mark and I went to the doctor's this morning and got the diagnosis...which is par for our Pick Up Trip Course. We are both bed-ridden! So, RoRo (my mom) and Nana and Poppi (mark's parents) have been taking shifts coming over to sit with the girls. Poor Paige! She is not sure what's happening....she is so used to be held 24/7 that this is all such a rude awakening to her! But, she is loving her bouncy seat, and as long as her Big Sissy is within eye-shot, she is as content as they come!
Keep us in your prayers! We are still contagious....so stay away! We got the Dr. to give us surgical masks to wear around the girls...they think it's sooo funny! Pray Pray Pray that we don't pass this on to them. I am not a believer in the Flu vaccine, but after this experience.....hhmm...well, we'll just have to see!
I promise pictures when i can get them downloaded from our camera! For now...just imagine the two sweetest Guatemalan girls in the whole world, madly in love with each other, laughing and giggling away, sitting next to the most smitten parents ever (wearing surgical masks and coughing!) :)
