Haylie's 3rd Birthday

Well, Haylie's 3rd birthday did not turn out at all like I had planned. Her birthday was Friday. We were going to have a Spongebob cake, celebrate with Grandma Jo and Grandpa Garry, open presents, and PARTY!!! Unfortunately, on Thursday around noon, she started throwing up - and it continued throughout the day. Thursday night she developed a fever and was up about every hour or so. So this is what she looked like for most of the day on her birthday...her fever was about 103 all day.



So we decided to postpone the festivities to Saturday. We went to the Clovis Rodeo Parade in the morning - her fever broke while we were there and I think she may have actually enjoyed herself...even though she never cracked a smile...
Anna had fun - she was so cozy on Grandma Jo's lap that she even took a nice little nap.
Saturday afternoon we decided to give Haylie her presents - she had perked up ever so slightly...can't you see how excited she was?...

Yeah, no, she was not excited at all. The poor thing still just felt too lousy to get excited. This was truly the most pitiful birthday ever. She made me open all her presents for her. Later, when she got a little more energy, she played her new computer game, but her energy only lasts for about 10-15 minutes at a time, then she crashes...like this....

This pic was actually taken Thursday night, but with her fever, she has been napping on the laminate floors quite a bit - they stay nice and cool.

It makes me so sad to see her like this. I took her to the doctor Thursday afternoon because, as you may remember, she spent a good majority of the month of December puking and I'm really starting to get concerned that there is something else going on. The doctor is convinced that she is just dealing with viruses. I don't know what to think anymore.

Luckily, we were already planning on having another birthday party for her this coming Thursday when Grandma Jane and Uncle Neal come to town - so hopefully she will be feeling better by then and we can have Spongebob cake and celebrate.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAYLIE!!! MOMMY AND DADDY LOVE YOU!!!

Poor girl. Sick kids are never fun. Looks like Grandpa was still happy as a clam though. (c:

She looks so sad, it must break your heart to see her sick again. And on her birthday too. :(

I noticed on your myspace that she's starting to feel better. I hope that trend continues and she is enjoying presents and spongebob cake in no time!
