And the saga continues...

So I'm beginning to think Tay didn't have heat exhaustion but was, instead, suffering from a touch of the stomach virus Dave had all day Sunday. She seems to have skipped over the yucky part (thank you, Jesus) and just had a tummy ache along with extreme fatigue...kind of felt wiped out.

I'm leaning toward this diagnosis because she felt the exact same way when I picked her up yesterday afternoon (I was feeling the same way by this time as well) as she did on Monday. Asking to take a nap, tummy ache, etc. So we headed home and I fixed her dinner. She ate a little bit and then just wanted to lounge around. Then she asked if she could go to was 6:30pm!!!! I took the cue and was asleep by 7pm myself :-)...

So she headed off to bed with her water bottle (looks like we got it through loud and clear that she needs to drink because she kept waking up in the middle of the night to have a drink...said she finally just put it in bed with her at 4am, lol) and didn't wake up again until 10:30pm. The only reason she got up that time was to take a bathroom break and then she went right back to bed and slept through the night. Wow!

The fantastic news is that she woke up in a great mood this morning and was bouncing off of the walls with excitement about going to the water park. She said she felt much better and "I guess all I needed was some sleep." Guess we all need that sometimes, huh?
