Wow!! What a great adventurous trip!! So, when we started our drive to Florida last Friday night Addison had a little bit of a fever. I just thought that it was a little cold from the weather change and maybe her allergies. Boy was I wrong! We made it to the beach Saturday around noon and everyone changed into their swimsuits and we went to the beach.
We spent to whole rest of the day on the beach. Addison wasn't really feeling good at all but she was determined to play in the water and have a good time. Later that night, after calling the on-call nurse for her pediatrician who thought it might be strep-throat, we decided that she needed to go see a doctor. All the minor-med type places were closed so Gene had to take her to the ER.
When he got her there they took her temperature and she was running a 104.5! They said that if she had gotten any higher it could have caused her to have seizures! I am so glad that we took her when we did!! When the doctor at the hospital asked her if she knew why she was there she told him, "I have a doctor's appointment." haha When they asked her if she felt bad she would tell them that she was fine. She was just wanting to get back to her vacation. My little trooper wasn't going to let this get in the way of her trip!! Turns out she had an extremely bad bacteria infection and after having the anti-biotic for a few days she was feeling much better.
We had so much fun in Disney World!! The hotel was amazing and the parks were really not that busy. All in all I think it was a very successful trip with 2 adults and 6 children driving 14hrs. there and back!! We are now having to find a way to adjust back to our normal routine and such. Ugh! I wish that we could stay on vacation forever!!
