What do you do when you don't have a scanner?

Why, you take a picture of the picture with your iPhone, of course!

I know it's not the best quality - but I REALLY liked this picture of Logan playing in the sandbox at school and since we don't have a scanner (I know, a totally high tech family yet we lack a scanner. It pains me too.) this was the best I could do for now. Miss Kim has been great about taking pictures of Logan at school during the day and then every now and then she drops one in our mail slot as a sweet surprise when we pick him up. I could go on and on about how much I love Miss Kim - but I think you get the picture. She rocks.

In other news, we had a pretty bumpy day yesterday and then rough night last night.

Our grand plans were to leave for Tahoe yesterday to join the Hicksons for some good ol' fashion sledding, snowman contests and snowball fights. But, bad luck hit with a vengeance - and Jon discovered the sunroof in the truck is broken, permanently in the OPEN position, which doesn't exactly bode well with the expected rain and snow we're going to have this weekend. So, he left it at the shop last night, they called today and unfortunately they won't be able to finish fixing it until tomorrow morning (after a new part comes in). *sigh*

However, we probably couldn't have gone to Tahoe today regardless (we were thinking last night that if they had fixed the truck this morning we might still drive up today). Because, when we got home yesterday we found Lola had puked in her crate and then proceeded to throw up about 5-6 more times through the night. :( I think she finally stopped around 2am. It was brutal (especially because, by about the time she started to calm down, Logan woke up pretty upset and needed some consoling himself). She was throwing up so much she couldn't keep the anti-nausea meds down nor wanted any sort of food we'd offer (even Logan's dinner scraps or her favorite: peanut butter!).

This morning she seemed a little better - in that, she was no longer throwing up thank goodness - but she's been super depressed and just laying on our bed, not moving, not eating, nada. Totally unlike Lola of course, which makes it much worse for us (and her).

At any rate, Jon took her to the vet this morning - they gave her some anti-nausea and anti-diarrhea meds, as well as some fluids, via IV and then sent us home with some stronger anti-nausea meds to continue giving her over the next few days. I'm hoping this week was just a rough one for her because we still have several more chemo sessions to go before we're done with her treatment. :(

And, one of these days, we'll get up to Tahoe yet. Logan has yet to touch snow with his own two hands and I can't wait to see him laughing like crazy while sledding down a mountain. :)
