We left to go up to VA on the 30th with Keyana - just me, Tony and Keyana were going up first to visit with Jamie, Billie and the kids on that Wednesday, spend the night that night then drive back down to Richmond on Thursday (NYE) to spend the night and visit with my father and step-mom so they could get some quality time with Keyana. Well, late Tuesday evening Cory calls us and that Keyana is running a fever...slightly and seems to not feel very well. She is also starting to cough. Hmmm. We get over to his house early on Wednesday morning to pick her up for the trip and she is not running a fever anymore but she is listless and still coughing...and promptly vomits! Ugh...what to do? She is begging us to take her with us and Cory is asking us if we think we can take care of her...lol. Uhhh...ya think? Well...we decided since she wasnt running a fever anymore that we would take her with us and just deal. Off we go. We get to Jamies with her. She has perked up considerably. We gave her some Mucinex and she was barely coughing anymore and she was playing happily with Hailie. Pretty much best visit ever with Jamie and family. Probably because we timed it at under 24 hours...lol. Then we got halfway to my Dads house and I realized I had left my weekly pill container at Jamies house. Oh no! So Tony and I called him and told him and we all decided that we would spend the night with my dad then go back to Jamies on New Years Day. Ok...works out well. So we think. We get to my Dads and my dad is getting more ...well...forgetful. Small kids are hard on him. Keyana was starting to get sicker again. The cough was coming back hot and heavy. I was worried about her infecting my parents. She was starting to get very cranky and out of sorts. I made an excuse to them about just discovering my forgotten pill minder and that I desperately needed to get back to it. I think it really was a relief to them. Not that they dont love us...but it would be hard. Well...turns out it was a godsend that we got back to Jamies when we did. Not 15 minutes after we walked in the door, Hailie got hurt. Billie has this friend with two little hellion boys. 4.5 and 2.5 add them to Hailie being 2.5 it is chaos with little hellions on wheels. Billies brother who lives with them was throwing his own NY eve party in the basement and there was a bunch of people going in and out and the kids were just running all over the place. Somehow, those three little ones got into a huge bottle of baby body wash..economy size from costco...and they poured it all over the landing at the top of the second story stairs and down the flight of stairs! Billie sees this and goes ballistic at the kids, screams at Hailie that she is in trouble, sends her to her room and tells her she is going to bed NOW! Then she goes screaming for Jamie to come get his daughter, punish her and clean up the mess his daughter made. So Jamie goes up the stairs, tries to clean up what soap he sees but he didnt realize it went all the way down the stairs...after he got up what he saw, he was carrying Hailie back down the stairs to get a sippy cup so he could put her to bed when stepped on huge puddle of slippery soap and his feet went out from under him. He fell down 5 steps and Hailie had her little legs wrapped around his waist like toddlers do. When he fell, he was trying to shield her but he fell so awkwardly he just went down. The way he landed, he landed on his tailbone and hip and on her ankle and lower leg. He refused to get xrayed but her tibia and fibula are broken. She is so pathetic. Her foot and leg are in a splint right now from foot clear up to her hip until she can get in to the ortho surgeon on monday. Her whole foot was just hanging limply off to a weird angle. It was eerie. Jamie and Billie were freaking out. If we hadnt been there when we were, god knows what would have happened because other than them, we were the only sober ones there and they were so upset they couldnt calm themselves down! Tony took over immediately to get them and Hailie in their car and on the way to the hospital. I stayed at the house with the baby and Keyana and the drunks...lol.
