ER visit, and quick to defend

Sunday night was eventful for me. I got a bad case of the stomach flu. It has passed it's way around our family. The only ones who haven't gotten it is Mady and Ben.
I had a terrible case of it. I was in the bathroom every 5-15 minutes for about 6 hours. I had the chills to top it all off.
I remember one time I had decided to just lay on the bathroom floor by the heat vent. Once I made it to the floor, the heat shut off. I decided to lay there anyway because I had minimal energy. Once I mustard up enough energy to make it back to my bed, I heard the heat turn on the very second I plopped onto my bed. I couldn't help but laugh. It was a good way to put a little humor into the situation, even if it wasn't all that funny.
My stomach was hurting badly. Then I started puking up mouthfuls of blood. It was quite a bit, and it made made Ben and I nervous. I went to the ER and was told that due to the excessive vomiting, I had tore my esophagus which was causing me to vomit blood. They put me on a medication to stop the vomiting so it could heal. I am feeling much better and am so glad that ordeal is over!
Marshall and Madison had a hard time falling asleep last night. Ben gently woke me up this morning for our morning routine of smoothies and scripture study. He asked me, as he always does, if I was feeling up to it or if I would like to sleep longer. This morning I chose to sleep knowing that the kids could use the extra rest. Once it was time to wake up and get the kids ready and off to school, Mady was clearly upset. She despises the fact that she has to wake up early to go to school. She is not a morning person. Neither is Ben or I.
Once we were all downstairs, Mady started yelling, "Mom never lets us sleep in!!" Courtney took offense to her talking about me and yelled back, "YES she does Mady!! You don't even know!!" I have to admit, it makes me feel good at how quick my kids are to jump to my defense. I couldn't help but chuckle at the situation this morning. My kids are so sweet.
