Going to bed

Ok, I’m not doing well. I have a really sore throat, swollen glands, my ears
are still crackling and today they started hurting too (although it is
always a toss up if it is the glands radiating up). I took my new-normal
regiment of cold meds plus Advil but it didn’t help a whole lot. So off to
bed I go for the night and hope that I feel a little human in the morning.
My stomach is also totally screwed up but I am opting to believe it is from
the drugs on a mostly empty stomach.

I slept though Trick or Treating for the most part. The kids had a blast – I
uploaded pictures. We missed our agency dinner too – it was a very last
minute deal and the kids were already out trick or treating and I was back
in the hotel snoozing and sick. I am disappointed.

We are mostly packed for tomorrow. We also ordered a very very fancy cake
for Dalton’s birthday (price tag: $7) so that will be delivered tomorrow
night. I still have to wrap a few gifts for him but otherwise I think we are
set for a very very full day. I hope I can keep up and I don’t wake up more
ill than I am now. I will probably start antibiotics tomorrow night if I am
still this sick but don’t want to risk the side effects during an all-day
trip on a bumpy road. Haha.

Wish us luck!!!

  1. Hi I have been reading your blog – it’s great! I also have three boys and am starting the process to adopt a girl from Vietnam. I am so excited to hear what it was like to meet your baby! I would love to chat with you when you have some time. marinaheartfield@hotmail.com

  2. I really hope that you get to feeling better very very quickly. I am so sorry that you are under the weather. I hope you get some rest before you meet Addison – in a VERY SHORT amount of time!!!!!

  3. So sorry you’re not feeling good – hope you wake up feeling better tomorrow for the big day to meet Addison! Can’t believe the kids were able to go trick-or-treating there – that’s great! Loved the pictures.

  4. Today’s your day to get Addison? So excited for you. Hope you’re feeling better. Thanks for blogging so much so we can all absorb it!

  5. Nicki, this is SO exciting, you are on your way to Addison as we speak!! I’m sorry you’re feeling crummy, that happened to me when we went to Cambodia.
    Re: the water… I’d definitely use it for washing dishes/brushing teeth (I am here in HCMC and don’t even know if the water is specially treated!) and probably stick to bottled water for drinking, but not panic if some gets in your mouth or whatever.

  6. Nicki,
    Praying you woke up feeling better! Hope your day meeting Addison is wonderful. Thanks for keeping us updated via your blog. It’s the best!
