Leaving on a jet plane

Tomorrow Charlie and I are making a last-minute quick trip to my office in Charlottesville. We are driving to Charlotte and flying to Charlottesville tomorrow morning and then flying back Wednesday night. Charlie gets to experience daycare for the first time and I get to attend a mandatory meeting Wednesday morning. I would be relatively excited about seeing my co-workers if Charlie weren't so sick - he has a double ear infection and bronchitus. We went back to the doctor this afternoon and came back with yet another antiotic, some prednisone (an oral steroid) and an ASTHMA INHALER complete with mask and pipe. Poor little guy. He is wheezing up a storm. The doctor said he should be OK to travel, though (which is good - if I don't go, I don't get reimbursed for the $700 plane ticket that was just billed to my Discover). So please everyone, PRAY for Charlie and I. This is going to be a hard trip. I'm not getting a good visual...Charlie sick, me in the airport with my him, my luggage, the diaper bag, stroller and car seat....

Hope you packed your sweaters. The upper South is CHILLY this week.

Em-

I prayed for you. How was/is the trip? Was Charlie a trooper? It is pretty overwhelming travelling solo- I have done it before. So much stuff, not enough hands...

Hope you get to say hi to Patrick LaRochelle. I know he's a big part of why you love returning to Charlottesville.

G2theL - why do you ALWAYS mention P. La. on my blog? That is so random!

Jill said...

Obviously, because P to the L to the R is your favorite person in Cville!

How did it go Emily? And how is Charlie? :(
