Paris Day 6: Stuck in Paris with a sick child

We were suppose to head home today but you may have seen the news where a volcano in Iceland erupted. Paris has closed both of their airports for the last 2-3 days and we were affected today. James is searching for ways to get us back to Germany but with so many people affected everything is booked.

It's just as well we didn't leave today though. Shortly, after we went to bed last night Macen woke up vomitting. And he continued to vomit several times an hour through the night. After 12 hours of vomit and his bile turning from yellow to brown, we were prepared to take him to the nearest ER. The hotel called a doctor though and he made a house call to the hotel room to check Macen out. He said it's just viral and to lay off liquids and food for awhile and then ease him back on them. He is down to vomitting about once an hour now. Hopefully he is feeling better by the time we travel back to Germany tomorrow or Monday.

I was joking yesterday there are worse places to be stranded than Paris but now with Macen sick, I think we just want to be home.
