9 challenges and a tiny trip to the ER

Ok, yeah, we went to the ER last night. I am kinda embarrassed about it, but we just didnt know what else to do. Eliana had really really bad diarrhea and then she fell asleep but woke up and her stomach was all hard and puffed out, and she wouldnt stop crying for like an hour! We gave her some mylicon but it didnt seem to help, so we called the ped, and they said (not seemingly worried) that since her stomach was rigid, we should take her to the ER. I think we all knew that it was nothing (well all of us except Ellie) but we figured better safe than sorry. So while we sat in the waiting room for two hours, she had some major gas and her stomach softened so that by the time we saw the doc, she was asleep and pretty much fine. They said that this has been going around and expect serious vomiting and stuff, but today she is just fine. So I guess we all get one screw up trip to the ER right? and this was ours. But if we hadnt gone and it wasnt just gas, I would have never forgiven myself. So what is a mother (and father) to do?

So today after a long sleepless night, I HAD to scrap!! I had this page all planned out from a spark of inspiration at work on Wed, that led me to work 9 - coutem NINE - challenges into this one page. All sketched out and everything and it came together like a dream! just how I imagined it!

Journaling reads: When we first met and fell in love, I thought that I had it all; I thought I knew what love was. It wasn't until our love brought Eliana into our lives that I realized how wrong I had been and what it feels like to truly love, be loved, have it all and be complete.
