Sep26_Homecoming Finally the family is all together again! Unfortunately, Anna started her homecoming day by throwing up in the middle of the night and staying up most of the night. It’s not clear whether it was stress, excitement or a stomach bug, but she was clearly miserable when I met her and papa in the airport. It was as if she wanted to be excited, but just didn’t have energy for it. She bounced back somewhat when we came home, and her usual “bubble” was coming back. In the morning she was acting really tired and “not herself” again, but after demolishing her pancake breakfast she seemed to perk up again and even wanted to take her scooter for a short ride. I guess we are going to watch it – at this point I am not so sure that she will make it to school tomorrow. It looks to me that she is fighting some virus even though she doesn’t have a fever. In the meantime, my husband found all kinds of faults of cosmetic nature with our A/C and heater installation – his level of attention to details is a lot higher than mine. I suppose some of them will be fixed next week, and he will have to live with some others. I wish daughter came back healthy, but I am very glad to have family together again and hoping that we’ll settle back into routine soon.

I'm glad they made it back safely, if not completely soundly - hopefully things will settle down, and return to routine quickly.

Ugh, hopefully it was just excitement, but I think you're probably right and she's fighting something. Hope she gets better soon.
