...the rest of the story...

...so we came home from the ER, and T went in for a nap. Upon awakening, she's her usual self...just full of beans.

As an aside, last night we were at "The Computer Store", aka Office Max, and picked up a little 3-yr-old workbook that concentrates on letters. Now don't get us wrong, we're not one of those families that insists that every single situation on the face of the earth that my child encounters be turned into a "learning experience". God forbid. But, we saw this sesame street book and the school does say we should practice letters, so picked it up on a whim.

Well, T is having lots of fun with it. Not so much the writing of letters. She enjoys more the sections where you circle two of the three items that starts with the appropriate letter. She's also enjoying coloring. Who would have thought?
Anyway, back to the story. As we're headed out the door to the ER this morning, my sister Dot says that by the way, my surprise bday party was going to be this evening. Everyone was meeting at PF Changs at Mary Brickell Park to celebrate. It was supposed to be a surprise, but she figured she better tell me given T's situation.

Since the docs were insisting that there was really not much wrong with T, we left the decision up to her. Did she want to go out to dinner and see all our friends or stay home and watch movies? Once she heard it was a chinese restaurant, there was no stopping her. She even insisted on wearing her chinese dress that she had been slated to wear to the FCC chinese new year celebration that we missed due to that week of fever.

Dinner was great, and T was acting her normal self. I think even that the swelling is down some. Here's T and my sissy Dot playing with the fountains as we wait for the valet. T thought it was great fun to stick her fingers in it.

So ends our crazy day. From the ER to fancy chinese silks...all in the same day.

This kid is killing me!

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
