The second plane (from Denver to Missouri) broke, we were told later that the fire alarm went off. We had to go back to Denver and we landed without brakes with airport fire trucks waiting for the plane we were riding. It also took a long time before the plane started landing, I thought we were not even going to Denver anymore. My heart was pounding and my body was shaking after the flight then RC started throwing up and shaking too, she got too sick but it was too late that we have two more planes to ride that day. So from Denver, we had to fly to Memphis then to Springfield, MO, not to mention some waiting in between airports. It was worse than going to the Philippines. It took us too long before we reached our destination and start the vacation. Then we finally arrived and found out that our two luggages were lost. Oh and we had to buy new clothes at two airports and since I am the frugal lady and can't afford to buy nice pants, I ended up wearing pajamas that is too big for me and the last shirts we were wearing were still full of vomit when we came. RC vomited a lot of times before our last flight and there was not enough time to buy and search for new stuff. It was a very unforgettable experience. We also spent one day at the hospital and took RC for check up. She had her first X-ray. I should have taken a picture. She was too cute with a little lab gown on. Good thing, I had my insurance card with me. And I'm very glad that the plane rides are over for now and we're okay. We really have to be thankful for everyday life.
Oh well, I'm still coughing like crazy at night time. We thought RC was finally well, she was happy yesterday running around before we left her at the day care and then we pick her up and she threw up twice in the car and she was not able to take anything down last night. I'm sorry if this is a little gross. You might not like to read about vomit. She is taking a nap now. I took the day off today. I might be in trouble again for taking days off but it was usually because RC keeps getting sick lately. I just hope I did not pass a virus to anybody during our vacation.
I'm a mother first before anything else and if this situations will force me to leave my job, I will. Anything for my RC.
Long story, I know.
