i'll try to give you a recap of the last few days in pictures and words this time. :-] i feel like i do a lot of picture posts and not enough typing. yay for early nights with kids in bed :-] i have a little free time now! hehe
a week and a half ago alexia had her quincenera at Cafe Sed and the Aupperles asked me to take a few family pictures & take ale's pictures as well.
and last but not least by any means...
do you know what that thing is? [not my eye drops...] that is a scorpion. a small scorpion. the smaller they are, the more dangerous they are. and it stung belem in her leg on friday night while she was in bed! we took her to the local health center asap because they have very strong venom and you can get really sick and even die from these things. there was a super long line at the health center but thankfully they fit us in, gave her a shot in her bottom and off we were back to the house within a whole whopping 15 minutes. it was incredible for a saturday night!
we got home and i was so dizzy i felt like like i was just completely drunk. it was horrible. the room was spinning whether my eyes were opened or closed! miserable. about 1/2 an hour after getting home i started puking and was sick for the night and most of the next day. :-[ my first officially mother's day and i was puking. blah. thankfully i was well enough by supper time to go enjoy the evening with people but i was ready for bed by 7:30. yuck!
belem looking all happy with her IV at the health center.
you're probably thinking "now you just said she got a shot and you were on your merry way -- in this picture she's got an IV..." that's because just a mere 36 hours later she got stung by another scorpion! you can't make this stuff up folks! she was such a trooper i could hardly believe it! i was in the midst of heating up lunch when she comes running out of her room gasping from pain and ripping her shorts off to have another scorpion come flying out. this one stung her 4 TIMES! 3 times on one leg and once on the other leg. so we got in the car as quickly as we could and got right in to the health center that time. we had a great nurse who got her started on her IV wonderfully and got her some good meds to help with her pain and before too long she was good as new. so we laid there in the bed waiting for the Dr to come and take out the IV because apparently the nurse could put the IV in but not take it out??? not sure on that one but we waited for an hour for the Dr to come to get this IV out. needless to say both of us were losing our patience and we were both super hungry since we hadn't ate lunch! it was 6:30 by the time we got home and we were happy to be there! at the end of the day we both said we were just thankful that they had the proper medications and staff to help us. :-]
