Meet Gadget!

This is Jordyn's new horse, Gadget ...
No hands!

Jordyn got this horse a few weeks ago from Gpa and Gma Overman. We decided to name the horse Gadget (no, Jordyn doesn't get a say in that ... ha!) because I always said that if I had two dogs, they would be Gizmo and Gadget. Well, we have NO plans of getting a second dog (one is enough work), so Jordyn's horse will have to be Gadget. :)

Thanks for all of your kind comments on here, email and facebook. Jordyn is doing MUCH better. Monday afternoon/evening were not easy though. Jordyn was quite sick. We are very fortunate to have such a helping family! Justin has been out of town for 4 days (he will be home very soon ... yay!), so his mom came up Monday night and stayed over night and watched Jordyn yesterday. My parents came up last night and stayed with her today. She's pretty lucky to have such wonderful grandparents. I think they got in plenty of snuggle time with Jordyn in the last two days.

Jordyn seems to be feeling fine. Yesterday she drank only Pedialyte, but she had a lot of it and was very hydrated! Today she has had a little milk (and Pedialyte), but I didn't want her to have too much milk because I wasn't sure how her tummy would handle it ... she seems to be handling it fine though. :)

I don't think she's quite 100% yet, but she is very close. If it really was Rotavirus, I must say her case was mild (minus Monday night which was horrible). For all of you who have dealt with it for more than a day (since it usually lasts about 3-8 days), I'm not sure how you did it!

We are so happy that Jordyn is back to feeling better. :)
