Fun & Food

On Saturday Allison took her first outing without the family.  She went to her Sunday School teacher's home for a bake day.  It gave her an chance to see friends, hang out and be away from us for awhile.  I think she enjoyed the 4 hours of freedom away & getting to use mom's cell phone.  

Saturday night she spiked a fever in the middle of the night so her and I were up a good share of the night and only dozing occasionally.  

Sunday was an amazing day.  She ate like crazy.  She started the day with bacon and sausage, ate 2 (yes, TWO) steaks & watermelon at lunch, 1/2 a large hamburger & fries for dinner and then various things in between.  I don't think she has ever in her life ate that much in one day.  We were all very happy and when she weighed and she had gained 2.5 lbs. cheers rang out!!  She probably won't eat for a few days now but it was good to see her eat food and do it willingly.  

Today we are hoping she will be able to go to school and see the kids and talk to them about what is going on with her and then try and go on her own this week.  She didn't spike a fever at all yesterday so we will have to see when she wakes up how she is doing.  Could be she wakes up with a fever this morning.  You just never know what your going to get with this disease.  

Allison friends also gave her an exercise ball over the weekend.... Thanks Smiths (especially Kenzie & Mayzie!) She is enjoying using it but keeping little brother off of it is challenging.  Allison will probably post later today and share how our school adventure goes.
