We’re finally home after a 6 day long evacuation from Hurricane Gustav! I am absolutely exhausted. Let me tell you why…..6 days in Monroe, LA and 5 trips to the Monroe hospital. Yep. Five.
Trip One: My friend just had a baby before we evacuated and was dehydrated. Rushed to ER.
Trip Two: Friend’s sister comes to help with newborn in hotel room and falls down hotel stairs.
Trip Three: My Grandmother collapses at breakfast. Admitted to Monroe hospital. (she is fine now).
Trip Four: Lily has a suspicious bug bite on her arm. Turns out to be Staph Infection.
Trip Five: My husband catches a stomach virus (which we now think is strep throat) and has to go to ER for fluids.
I. am. not. kidding.
This evacuation was a nightmare. I am so happy to be home. Thank you all for your prayers, emails and well-wishes! The good news is that my home sustained little damage. Only one portion of our backyard fence was blown down.
Go AWAY Ike!
