Christmas and Wedding

So here is my post from Christmas and Ron and Alci's wedding. I was going through my pictures and thought, why do I not have any pictures from Christmas? And then I remembered, we were in the ER on Christmas eve! We opened presents from my parents and ones that we got each other on Monday night before Christmas, and we made a video of that that we're going to send to my parents, and then at 5am Tuesday morning Emmaline woke up (well, she woke Ronda up who was staying with us for a few days to help get stuff ready for the wedding) throwing up, with a fever of 103. I freaked out a little and called the doctor, and the nurse said to bring her in once the office opens. So we went there, they checked her for strep and influenza; both were negative so he said it was probably just a virus, and by Christmas she should be feeling a lot better. So we loaded her up in the car and drove to Nana and Papa's that evening. The next couple of days she was just feeling awful, with a pretty high fever, so I called the nurse again on Wednesday, and she said that if her fever is still high on Thursday we should bring her back in. When we woke up on Thursday she still had a fever, but it had gone down quite a bit, so we thought that she was on the mend, so we relaxed a little bit. Then that night we started opening presents with Nana and Papa and family, and we hadn't taken her temperature in a few hours because it had gone down for a while, but around 11:30 she was feeling pretty yucky again and getting pretty warm, so we took her temperature and it was 104.3. So I totally freaked out and lost it, and said, I don't know how to treat this! We're going to the emergency room! So we bundled up and hauled her in; long story a little shorter, a urine test and some x-rays and we discover that she had pneumonia. It was so crazy. But the hospital we went to was really great, and the doctor was even in Royce's parents ward when they lived in Madisonville. Anyway, he was going to admit her into the hospital that night, but he said since it was Christmas eve, if we watched her really closely, and if she had any signs of trouble we would need to bring her in right away, then we could take her home so she could still have a little bit of a Christmas. Anyway, a shot of antibiotics and a constant dose of Tylenol/Motrin and within a couple of days she was doing a ton better. We had to go back into the ER Christmas day for a re-check, but they didn't even have to take any x-rays she was doing so much better. Which was so good! We were excited to have our little monkey feeling better, and much happier. And it was good timing, because then we had to get everything ready for the wedding on Tuesday! Which was also very fun and rewarding. A lot of work, and a pretty crazy couple of days, but really great to be able to be a part of Ronald and Alci's wedding, and it was so special to be able to go to the Temple with them when they got married. So I guess that's all...there are a few random pictures that I took from the last couple of weeks, because I thought they were pretty cute, but sadly this is all for pictures for Christmas this year.
