This boy was sick last night… As in I crawled into bed and heard him crying hysterically and when I got to him I found him sitting up in his bed covered in vomit. Ugh. He threw up a few more times in the 45 minutes that followed and then he was done. After his clothes and bedding were changed, I rocked him in a chair for about 20 minutes and then he was ready to go back to bed.
Being then covered in vomit myself, I grabbed a quick bath and crawled into bed, completely expecting to be up half the night with him. Thankfully, though, he slept the rest of the night and woke up this morning with a a healthy appetite.
If you’ve been around here, you know that Baby E does not do well with stomach bugs (And neither does his mama!) This is his third since Christmas and he’d had a few before that. He normally does not bounce back very well from them, and I can usually count on him being down for at least 4-5 days. So imagine my relief when he was smiling this morning when I walked in his room. He desperately needed a bath, though, so that elicited a lot of screaming when I unceremoniously plopped him in my bathtub.
With him up and better, we are now officially in a waiting game. Will any one else get it? I’m praying no. I feel like we have filled more than our quota this year and I declare us finished!
