SS napped for about half an hour and is understandably tired. Waking her up for school tomorrow and getting her ready is going to be challenging. I'm glad P will be home and we can tag team her.

Also, we are getting old, our energy ran out last night. Aging absolutely sucks.
I am glad we requested two beds on this trip. SS has slept on her bed twice since Nana passed away, and we were looking forward to a few nights without being kicked. Last night it paid off in ways we could not have anticipated. We thought SS was definitely on the mend, asleep, when she stirred and threw up. Her bed was useless at that point and had she been between us on a king size as usual we would have had to change rooms because the mattress was soaked. Sorry if TMI. Once we cleaned her up and got some water in her SS settled in our bed and managed to get some sleep.

One thing JJ and SS have in common is that they do not get sick often. Then when they do it's big, unexpected and scary. Most parents have plenty of experience by the time their kids are eight, not the car with us. SS fell asleep about half an hour ago, and P is also asleep. They both really needed the rest.
We have to be at the airport by 4:30 p.m. tomorrow so we might not be able to get to do much before then. P complained about not feeling well around noon and I'm hoping he won't get sick or the flights home will be excruciating. I'll pack while they rest and hope for the best.
This was our night, and it was a long one. SS was tossing and turning and could not sleep then bolted to the bathroom. She was in there a while and I went to check on her, opening the door just in time to watch her throw up all over herself.
I felt awful for my poor baby because she caught whatever I had with worse results. It's a good thing I over pack because she ended up taking three baths and changing clothes a few more times. We had to resort to keep her with just undies at a point. We need to go to the laundromat later today to get her clothes washed.
We lined one of the trash cans with a shopping plastic bag and made it SS's puke bucket. You can see it on the night stand on the left side of the picture. It broke our hearts to see and hear SS cry. At her age I had logged many sick hours but SS doesn't get sick often. Last time she vomited was before me moved. SS was miserable.
P made a run a three in the morning to a pharmacy for med, Popsicles and baby wipes. SS finally settled and fell asleep around 5 a.m. It's almost eleven and SS has been awake for almost an hour and feels much better. We had a lot planned for today but there is no way we can risk going out after the night SS had. She says her tummy no longer hurts and there is no vomiting. However we think it's best to let her rest.

We went to be really early for us last night, after having pho for dinner to settle my stomach. Then the jerks next door had the TV on blasting. We called the main desk and they called the room and there was no answer. They probably passed out with the TV on. SS was crying at 2:00 am because the noise woke her up several times. I so wanted to rip them a new one.
SS woke up about an hour ago, had breakfast and is now playing. P's sleep was also disturbed and is now catching up on some sleep. We will hopefully get out of here in the next hour.
It's good to see P get some rest, sleep has been eluding him this past year. And he actually had breakfast this morning, something he rarely does. I'm taking that as a good sign he is on the mend.

P insisted I rest, and when I was ready to go P desperately needed a nap. We will see how much we can get done.

This is the first time we have traveled carry on only which is quite the feat for me because I always over pack. We did cheat a little, getting some items in the car seat bag. SS made sure she had DOG and her blanket. Along with her Star Wars bath robe and toys. Carry on only be dammed the girl must have her comfort items.
