On Tuesday, July 1, 2008, I receive a call from Mari’s summer school saying that she has diarrhea and needs to be picked up. I think they might be making too big of a deal over some diarrhea since we give Mari chocolate laxatives all the time. As a result, she can sometimes get diarrhea or loose stools. So I call Keith up and tell him he needs to go pick her up from school (since we only have one vehicle and he has it that day). He brings her home and she seems to be fine.
For the rest of the day she has several more episodes. Other than the episodes, she is completely herself, full of energy without any hint of slowing down. Keith and I talk that night about whether we should send her to school or not the next day. I know I want her to go to school so bad. She is going to have both July 3rd and 4th off due to 4th of July holiday. So, I really am not looking forward to having her home until Monday ALL THAT TIME. Just as a precaution, we decide to keep her home to make sure she is over her diarrhea.
