Good morning from BWI! It was really touch and go yesterday, but everything is great now. We are in one of the 3 rooms not inside the Innkeeper's Club door which means we have the ginormous balcony right next to Crescent Lake and the dock and the extra window behind the sofa. It's not a problem at all not being inside CL. This view is amazing. But, it is VERY loud when the performers are out right next to the room, but that ended about 10:15 last night.

Yesterday, DD13 who never gets sick, said her ear was really hurting and her head pounding about 3/4 of the way in the car yesterday. She got up at 0300, so we figured she was also very tired. I gave her a decongestant and when we arrived at BWI she said it hurt a lot so she just wanted to sit on a bench next to the port cochere while DH and I parked the car and brought back a few things. We were gone only 5-10 minutes. When we started walking back from the car, right in front of the port cochere was an ambulance and fire truck with their lights on. I don't think I've ever been so scared and worried. I ran all the way there like a crazy person, only to find DD just sitting there still on the bench wondering what I was freaking out about. I was shaking and crying picturing her in the ambulance after having fainted and hitting her head, but no such thing at all. It took a few minutes to compose myself. I think having been up since 0200 might have had something to do with my unstable condition and my imagination took the best of me

We were immediately taken to our room and skipped Epcot since DD wasn't well. She hasn't even been to the lounge yet, but it feeling much better this morning and still has no fever so she's ready for breakfast, which is a good sign. We're going to take it easy today and walk over and exchange our AP vouchers and get our TIW and go to Epcot.

The lounge, BTW, was empty for apps. and dessert last night. I'm sure this will change soon now that it's Friday and the weekend is almost here. I'll check-in later and post photos, too

It could still be a ear infection, so if it still bothers her, I'd run her to the clinic (so you can start her on meds and enjoy your trip) Antibiotics take awhile to work...and stuff like that happens when you are no where near home right

Hopefully she is on the mend. A nice leisurely Epcot day sounds wonderful

KOOK, so sorry to hear about your daughter, I hope she continues to feel better! Oh my goodness, seeing the ambulance must have freaked you out, however I am sure a lot of us would have reacted the same way, I know I would have!

Hope you have had a nice relaxing day at EPCOT. Enjoy the BWI and your ginormous balcony

Aw, Kook, what a scare! So thankful your DD was not the reason for the ambulance & fire truck...but do hope whomever it was for is also okay.

Glad DD is feeling better this morning and will continue to feel better all day. Gentle hugs and lots of PD.

DW had a migraine yesterday and I know it's not fun traveling with sick child. Sorry for your scare and I do pray she is better today. No fun being sick.
