Elisabeth's Thanksgiving

Poor Elisabeth has caught a cold. The same cold that has passed one by one through all of us since we've been back in the states (except Elsa, she must have some amazing African immune system!). 

Yesterday morning Elisabeth seemed downright miserable - more so than a simple runny nose. And because walk-in urgent cares won't even look at her, I decided to take her to the ER to make sure it wasn't something serious (when you have a child like QE it is better to be safe than sorry) . So after I got the turkey prepped and into the oven, Elisabeth went and got blood work + a chest x-ray. What they found was an upper respiratory infection.

 Elisabeth is still so miserable. She has barely opened her eyes today. There is just something extra sad about seeing Elisabeth sick. A child so perfect and pure should never be ill - it just doesn't seem right. Here's hoping tomorrow brings her increased energy and strength.
