Worst couple of days

So Monday at 6:00pm we had a biking accident where the chariot holding both kids tipped over as we hit a curb trying to avoid a car that didn't see us. Quinn hits her head on the concrete and Brock hits Quinn.

6:15pm Brock has a febrile seizure from a rapid temp increase to 103.

We treat his fever all night and take him to the doctor on tuesday. They say it is probably Roseola and should have a fever for 3 days. Okay we are leaving on Wed (today) to San Jose, CA... so we plan for the fever reducers and get a anti-seizure suppository for the plane.

1:00am he wakes up so dad takes him to the apartment (because of course mom is also sick) around 4:40am he throws up on dad he still has a fever, medication, throw-up again wakes up mom and then sleeps for 20 minutes (lower temp at least). New meds at 6:15 including anti-nausea, throw-up again. Sleep finally for 30 minutes and Quinn wakes him up....

By 7:15am, fever again, throw-up without any med or provocation, of course all over mom... but now able to eat 20 cheerios... shower and ready for the doctor, of course have to throw-up one more time before we even leave the house around 10:50... sleep on the way to the doctors, at the doctors, and confirmed vis a CBC test it was a virus.... not only does Brock hate the finger prick, but the band-aid is like a mortal enemy, even when he feels crappy.

finally, make it home and into bed (again) by 1:30 and sleep until almost 4pm... wake up a new kid and ready to eat... and eat... and eat... cheerios, then oyster crakers, mac-n-cheese, applesauce, stole some of Quinn's fish sticks... and overall generally happy considering the disappointing 1.5 hours in the double stroller waiting for Southwest to never get on a plane to San Jose...

We had perfectly planned on 1 hour and 30 minutes to give us plenty of time at the airport. For whatever reason getting through the line to check in bags took 1:29. We were not able to catch our flight. The whole family was very disappointed. Here is Quinn's reaction as we are leaving the airport, having missed our flight
