So it's our school vacation week, and my 3 boys and I headed to PA so that my oldest son AJ could attend an accepted students day at Elizabethtown College. We drove down yesterday and went to Hershey's Chocolate World before checking in at our hotel in the middle of Harrisburg. All was fine until about 1am, when AJ started vomiting and having diarrhea. Poor kid was up most of the night, as was I, since I couldn't go back to sleep. Needless to say, he wasn't able to attend the event at Etown in the morning, although he was better enough (after taking meds) to go to at least a little bit of the day while I met with the financial aid director. Noah, Ben and I were able to have lunch there with the free tickets they provided too, and we I had a chance to explore the campus a bit while AJ was busy in the class. AJ and I were there in November, so at least we had done the campus tour previously and had the majority of our questions answered then. I just feel so bad for the poor kid... not enough that he was sick, but whenever he has a vomiting spell, his face looks all bruised from the blood vessels around his face "popping". How miserable.
I decided that I was not going to make the 8 hour drive home on 3 hours of sleep, so I found a resort in the Poconos for $62! It's regularly $260 a night, so a sweet deal for sure. We drove the 2.5 hours to get here, so we'll be partway home already when we leave in the morning. AJ is in bed, and I am just leaving the pool with the other 2 boys. Not exactly how we planned the trip, but we made parts of it fun at least. I just hope that none of the rest of us end up with what AJ has!
