Room 323

Our search is over.

We found the Cancer Answer. It lies in Room 323 at the Mansion at Forsyth Park. In a claw foot bathtub. And in an oversized terry cloth robe. And in a day at the spa. And in yummy dinner at Ruth's Chris on Riverstreet.
We didn't think about this crazy kudzu business once over the past 3 days. We pranced around Savannah without a care in the world. We laughed. We ate. We snoozed. We, well, let it all hang out. Day 1: Drove down. Stopped in Macon to eat breakfast with Grammie and Poppy Tots at Cracker Barrel. Hit Savannah in record time (and by "record time" I mean 8 hours to make 5 hour trip). Car danced our way down Highway 16. Little man went nuts in hotel room. Cooing and gooing and smiling away on the big ol' bed. Loved on Daddy down by the pool at sunset. Dinner at Rocks on the River. SO good!Day 2: Breakfast at Clary's. Established 1903. Yum yum yum. Daddy announced top secret surprise: Spa day for Mommy at Posidion Spa. Gracious golly! Facial and massage and aromatherapy steam shower. Emerged a new woman. Lounged poolside pretending to drink fruity little umbrella drinks. Dinner at Ruth's Chris (Natalie, this pic is for you--we truly can't thank you enough!!! Fireworks on Riverstreet and Cooper's first cab ride. Bottle, swaddle, bath, and bed. Up all night with yucky wheezing and coughing. Mommy guilt for first cab ride and hotel air.
Day 3:Up at 5am. Hightailed it to Atlanta to get sweet boy to Children's Healthcare Immediate Care (Dr's office closed for holiday). Started albuterol nebulizer treatments every 4 hours. Follow-up with Dr. Cooper in morning. Cried on phone to mom.

Wish we were still in Room 323 where we alas, found the mystery Cancer Answer.

Absolutely FABULOUS weekend! Happy 4th of July!
