Battling the Sickies

I am so thankful that my kids rarely get sick, because today was rough! Let me just say, Lexie is not an easy patient!

Luckily, I felt much better today compared to yesterday. I spent yesterday throwing up even more than I already am, and had excruciating stomach cramps. Sure enough, the morning sickness does seem better in comparison (just give me a few days before I take back that statement)!

Lexie, however, threw up again at 4 AM. She was better all day yesterday, so it really surprised me that it started back up again. My only experience with kids stomach viruses was Dylan's one and only 2 1/2 hour stomach bug a few years ago. She went back to bed, but woke up at 8 AM, and began dry heaving. She fell back asleep, and slept until 12:30 in the afternoon. She hasn't thrown up since, but she also hasn't moved from the couch.

She was supposed to have her 4 year well exam today, but I had to reschedule it. She's not sick enough to see a doctor, but this is definitely the sickest she's ever been. She is miserable and so crabby!

She was like a little dictator this afternoon, but I gave in because I felt so bad for her. All she wanted was for me to snuggle with her, so that's what we did. At 5:15, after only being awake for 5 hours, she fell back asleep. She just woke up at 7, and thankfully, seems a bit perkier! Here's hoping that was the end of it!

My little man is feeling much better! He only had to deal with diarrhea for a day. I kept him home from school on Monday to rest, because he seemed so tired, but he went back yesterday. I'm so glad he didn't get the same thing Lexie has. He's back to normal, for sure!

Thanks to their strong immune systems, they should stay healthy for a while! I, on the other hand, seem to catch everything I'm exposed to! I'm just hoping that this virus is gone for good. Dealing with it once every few years is plenty enough for me!

  7. I'm sorry you've all been sick. It's definitely not fun. And from my experience, all kids want when you are sick is to be stuck to the couch all day so they can lay on you. It never fails.
