Wake Up Call - The Sequel

We have been at my parents’ house for the last few days, and I was very pleased that Georgia seemed to recover from the vomiting fairly quickly. The weekend was going along well other than the fact that I was not sleeping.

We did the normal game of musical beds that we do when we are at my parents’. First, we put the kids in bed together, and Eric and I went to bed in the other bedroom. Then, Georgia came and got in bed with us. She wallowed on top of me, rolled around, got comfortable horizontally, and finally kicked me out of bed, so I got in bed with Eli.

Last night, when I was getting in bed with Eli, I heard the sound coming out of him that I’m sure you’re all too familiar with. That unwelcome sound of diarrhea just letting loose.

I scooped Eli up as fast as I could and ran with him to the bathroom. I yelled for Eric to come and help. Poor Eli was so confused. He had still been asleep, so he didn’t know what the heck was going on. He woke up to a horrible stomachache, and mommy stripping poopy jammies off of him and sitting him on the potty.

Things went downhill from there. When Eli’s tummy started to hurt, he kept jumping up off the potty instead of sitting down. Oh, the mess that would cause. From midnight last night until about noon today, he had a difficult time making it to the potty. After about six pairs of undies and some Immodium Jr., he finally seems to have it under control, so I think we’re on the upswing. Yippee!

Then tonight, I went to get Georgia ready for bed. She made a poopy diaper, and I went to change her. Total diarrhea. Oh no.

Oh no, you poor thing! All I can say is keep it in YOUR family. We sure don't want it here. *LOL*

Seriously, I hope they get better soon and you come away unscathed.

Oh no. So my oldest was sick last week - bad enough we had to take him to the ER. On Thursday, right before my wife and the kids left on the trip, my daughter started with the vomiting/diarrhea. Today she's feeling better but they informed me my youngest son now has it. All I can hope is that they're all done with it by Friday when we start the drive back from California.

Well, that's really the s**ts. Pun intended. You poor thing. I so remember all of this. :(

Ugh. That is all I have to say about that.

Go get some coffee...you deserve it!

That sucks when one of the kids doesn't make it to the potty. Fortunately we only had one instance like that happen, when Caitlin suddenly threw up as we were going down the road...

I have just downloaded iStripper, so I can watch the hottest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
