You all now know what time it was for me - solo pool time!
Another nice afternoon sunbathing, swimming and reading. Really one of the best parts of this vacation was having the time to do this during naps. A real lifesaver lol
Once Nora got up from her nap the vibes were.... off
Offered her a bottle - hard no.
Offered her multiple snacks - no way.
Okay.. well we have a dinner reservation so maybe she just wants some real food.
We headed out on the first leg of our journey - monorail to MK. Immediately on the way there Nora starts coughing so hard that there are tears in her eyes. We give her water but it's pretty rough.
We make it to the boat portion of our trek to WL.
I tried to enjoy the ride but Nora would cough hard and then make herself cry over it. I couldn't figure out what was going on because she had no fever, no runny nose, no sneezing. Just the most painful sounding cough.
We made it to WL and Ian was really impressed. He thought the resort was beautiful, but that he would never choose it over the Poly. We live in Maine, so this is kind of the vibe around here so it doesn't feel like escapism to him I think.
We were the first seated for dinner at Whispering Canyon and immediately placed an order for the nachos. Our waitress attempted antics for maybe 3 minutes before realizing the atmosphere of the table was not conducive
We appreciated her laying off.
At this point I was able to give Nora bits and pieces of dinner but between every bite she would cough and cry and my anxiety and guilt was skyrocketing.
Our skillets came out quickly and I tried my best to eat some, but I just mentally couldn't do it. Nora couldn't either apparently because she went into full meltdown mode.
I ended up taking her and leaving Ian, finding our stroller and attempting to just walk around the lobby long enough for Ian to get his fill of supper.
While we were walking around I called my MIL (a NP) to get her thoughts. She has long thought that Nora has bad allergies but with our climate in Maine it just hasn't been a big issue yet. She suggested ordering children's Zytrec and gave me a dosage to give her. I immediately ordered Instacart so that it would be at the desk of the Poly when we returned.
I basically have no pictures of this time period because Nora and I were just taking turns crying.
Ian made it back out to us feeling bad that I didn't get to enjoy my dinner, but we made it back quickly to the Poly and grabbed the medicine delivery from bell services.
Nora went to sleep pretty quickly and I soothed myself with a treat.
I went to bed very worried about what the next day would bring. Stay tuned...
