Lilian wasn't well last night and was awake crying pretty much all night. Oskar felt left out and also cried all night. Both Mette and I stayed up trying to get two upset babies to sleep. We failed and got zero sleep. Grumpy, knackered and emotional parents does not make for a happy place today!
At least today we just had a play picnic to attend at the clinic. We could try to get some rest in the morning. Or not. We were late for the picnic and Lilian had to be seen by the Doctor to make sure she wasn't dehydrated or had caught a virus. Both appear negative and she seems much happier tonight which is a blessing as if she becomes ill then the therapy will be affected.
So we had a quick picnic with the usual licking of everything then a blood test and a grumpy pair of parents snapping at each other. Boo. We came home in the afternoon and chose not to go the restaurant for an afternoon meal as per usual as we'd have probably killed each other.
Now to the good bit. Beatrice, the manager of the house we're staying at, had organised another special visit for Lilian and Oskar. Staying with the Christmas theme she'd invited the local professional hockey team, the Graz 99ers, over to decorate the Christmas tree. I can't think of many people who can say that their Christmas tree was erected by local sporting heroes!
