Mommies aren't supposed to get sick...

I woke up Saturday morning with one helluva headache. Then I got started on my day (let the dogs out, feed the cats, feed the dogs, pump, etc.) and I started to feel really nauseous. By the time Molly woke up I was very close to being sick to my stomach. I tried to push on through, but after putting her down in her crib (which she was *not* happy about) and running to the bathroom so I could dry heave I cried Uncle... well, more to the fact I cried Mommy and called my mom for relief. Granny to the rescue indeed. She was able to come over and take care of Molly so I could try and sleep off whatever stomach issues I was having. I got the Marsh stomach from my dad and every now and then it just hits you out of nowhere. I used to just crawl back into bed and sleep through it, but with a little one that's not so easy. I was able to sneak in a few hours while my mom was here so I could at least function. Luckily N was able to cut his work trip short and fly back on Saturday. He got home a little after 10 pm so that definitely helped.

The headache lingered until yesterday, but I think getting up at 4 am to drive Sadie up to Mill Valley for her surgery did not help matters. Especially since it was a little after 11:30 pm when I finally crawled into bed. I also didn't sleep that well because I was afraid I was going to sleep through my alarm and miss Sadie's appt. So I was waking up every 30-45 minutes to check the time. In a shocking turn of events we didn't hit any traffic and got up the clinic in a little over an hour. I then took Sadie on a nice long walk since it would be her last long walk for a while. She's having surgery on her left knee. The ligaments are completely torn so they are actually cutting into her bone in order eliminate the need for the ligaments altogether. The procedure is called a Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy. The recovery time is 8-10 weeks, but then she should be able to resume all normal activity. N is about to take off to go pick her up. Poor Sadie girl... I hope she scored some good drugs.
