When we were at Straw Hat on Monday night, Baby Quinn was recuperating from a bad cold/lung congestion/pneumonia, or some such. On Tuesday they took her to the pediatrician who did some sort of treatment, but then sent her to the hospital in Roseville where they kept her overnight. Steve & Meg were able to stay in the same room, which is so much better for families than to have to leave their young baby or child.
She was checked out every which way and pronounced ok this morning, so was released from the hospital after the overnight and seems to be doing fine. Poor baby has had a bout with some sort of respiratory thing, and I hope she is back to normal. Even through it all, she retained her happy disposition for the most part.
My sister and her husband have been in town since the Straw Hat get-together, and they left just a few minutes ago. I met them as well as Mike and the boys at a local restaurant for breakfast before they took off for home in Nevada, and I hope the snow doesn't make the roads too bad. I had already eaten my healthy breakfast so I just had a giant cinnamon roll which was very tasty, but now I have indigestion from it!
As we were leaving the restaurant we met Steve, Meg, Liam & Quinn coming in to have their breakfast. They came straight from the hospital, picked Liam up at Jeannie's, and wanted to get a decent meal. Evidently the hospital food was terrible, which has always been my experience with it. I think the smells of a hospital mix with the smells of the food, and the combination is almost lethal to me.
I was up early enough this morning to know that I need a nap about now. I need to make a quick trip to the grocery but just can't stand the thought of having to get in my car and drive the mile or so to get there.
