So, after a long, long, long 3 days in the hospital with my baby, we were finally released. I have a lot of respect now for parents that spend long hours in the hospital waiting for the child(ren) to be healed. It was boring, long (I know, already said that), and also rather stressful. They weren’t sure what she was sick with to begin with so at first it was a bit of a shot in the dark. But they got it sorted very quickly and with the right treatment (IV antibiotics) her improvement was very rapid.
We made it back up the mountain just in time for a cheese fondue, and then to see my Lily get her ‘piu-piu’ medal from her ski class.
She loved it, and did great, from what I hear. Her and her little sister are already talking about going back next year, and Evie is pretty excited to get on skis next year. I am really proud of my big girls for handling Mama being gone so well, and proud of my Lily for sticking with skiing. I think I’ll take a nice, long, knitting project next year, and will try to relax a bit, as this year was anything but relaxing!
