Trip #5 to Duke ED

So this weekend, Eden decided that it had been a while since she'd taken a trip to Duke Pediatric Emergency Department. On Saturday she began vomitting a little (nothing for any ordinary parent to be concerned about - but enough for me to raise an eyebrow). Since her diaphragmatic hernia, I've somehow lost all my sense of judgement when it comes to "maternal instinct". After her surgery Dr. Rice (her surgeon) had told me to watch her very closely if she ever started vomitting again. So when she started with vomitting on Saturday, I immediately called the after hours line at our office and had them page the doctor. I was so thankful that Dr. Herriott was on -call. She quickly called me back and reassured me that I wasn't freaking out for no reason and that I should take her to the ED "just to be sure". So - off to Duke we went. Three hours later, we were on our way home!!!! They did a chest x-ray and a belly x-ray and both were fine. And of course, after we got to the hospital, she never vomitted again. What can I say - this kid likes to keep me on my toes.

Sorry these two cut half her face out - but I have been trying to catch a better picture of that tooth since many of you didn't believe that she really had one:)

So that was our weekend.... The week ahead is quite "normal" thankfully! The weather is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! I can't wait to spend some time outside with Eden this week. I think we will be taking quite a few walks.

Here are a few more photos from my ETSY shop as well:) I've had a few "large" custom orders lately which has been very fun... I'm also gearing up for a craft fair in October which I hope goes well.

My largest custom order so far (thanks Grandma!!! - its in the mail and should get to you this week!)

Halloween Cards! These little kiddos in their costumes make me so excited about dressing Eden up this year!

My new favorite cards in my shop! I found this paper lace at a little craft shop in Raleigh called Panopolie. I got lost in there for hours:)

And lastly, I've been trying to thin out my stash of scraps so I decided to make some cards soley from scraps and I thought they turned out pretty good.
