sick sick sick of sickness and update

We had a little excitement the weekend of November 13. Laura woke up at 11:30 Friday night complaining of the worst headache ever. She was really dizzy and nauseous and every time she moved her head, she would throw up. She made it through the night, but wasn't any better in the morning. She said something about going to the hospital and I knew it was serious. I made some calls and got Laura's parents out of a church meeting to come get Evelyn. We went to the ER and after some tests, they determined that Laura has vertigo.

As a side note; isn't vertigo more of a symptom than a diagnosis? I thought so, but apparently I was wrong.

Anyway, Laura has been sleeping at her parents house so that they can take care of her and Evelyn and I can do school and work. Needless to say, I'm lonely at home and Laura is really tired of sleeping all day. She's still really dizzy when she moves her head, but the headache and nausea have gone away. Hopefully she'll be able
to be up and about for Thanksgiving next week.

Meanwhile, Evelyn has been having a ball playing with her Grandma and Grandpa Richards.

They went to In-N-Out

She ate a mini Twix candy bar

And now since the blog hasn't been updated in a long time here are some random pictures of what has been happening to our family:
