It all started this past Tuesday when my daughter started throwing up.? She is 3 years old and not at the point yet where she can hold it back till she gets to the bathroom.? I washed her sheets several times over the course of the week due to her throwing up in bed.? It was HORRIBLE!
I thought it was over after a few days and actually thought it may have been caused by her being lactose intolerant.?? She had been drinking her brother’s regular milk the day before she got sick.? Since my mom had been planning on visiting this weekend, I told her to go ahead and come because my daughter seemed much better.? My mom drove up from NJ on Thursday to spend a long weekend and celebrate a late Christmas since we didn’t get to see her over the holidays.? All was great until Friday afternoon, when I got a call from my 4 yr old son’s preschool that he had just thrown up all over the floor in his class.
Uh oh….. My mom was kind of upset, because the last thing she wanted was to get sick.?? My husband picked my son up from school who threw up all over his car on the way home.? And once my son came home, I started to feel queezy myself.? I let it go because I thought maybe I was just THINKING I was sick, but not really sick.? That happens to me a lot, especially after cleaning up throw up and feeling like gagging.
Well, sure enough, an hour later I was in the bathroom with diarrhea and then an hour after that I was throwing up.? My mom decided to pack up and leave that night hoping that she wouldn’t get sick herself.? I was praying she would be OK.
So, for the entire night on Friday, I was back and forth from bed to bathroom until I had nothing left.? It was the sickest I had been in a LONG time.
Saturday morning, the phone rang, and it was my mom.? She sounded horrible and said that she was sick too.
Well, it has surely been a rough weekend for me and my family.? Thank God my husband has not gotten it.? He was able to care for the kids and the baby while I was sick in bed.? I even got a full night’s sleep last night (almost 12 hours straight).? I have not slept that much in one time period for quite a while.? I really needed that rest and the downtime.
I am looking forward to a new week.? I have sooooo much catching up to do.? But stay tuned, because I am offering another great blog graphic giveaway!? For those of you in need of a 125×125 ad button…I think that is what I am offering next!!
Oh man.. I hate being sick! That is the last thing I or my wife and I need to happen! LOL! Could be why we rarely leave the house! Get better soon!
