What a weekend!
Monday, February 06, 2012
My son came down within the stomach flu Wednesday after I left for work. He stayed home with hubby that day. I was home with him on Thursday & he seemed to be doing really well. Also, I was so happy to discover my preg. Friday we were all sick. By Saturday, C was still feeling rough. When he threw up again on Sunday off to urgent care we went. The whole ordeal ended up taking all day...long story and resulted in my learning kids can puke for 7-10 days. Oh well at least I got medical confirmation he wasn't dehydrated and didnt have aspiration pneumonia. He started sounding phlegmy on Sat too.
So far he hasn't thrown up since 7 am. Needless to say, I have not been eating much as none of this is very appetizing and I can barely keep up with th e cleaning and laundry. I just feel so bad for little guy. He looks at me & says "tummy hurt" like he can't understand why I haven't fixed it yet. Today has been better & I'm happy I've been able to help him feel loved while he's sick, but I'm secretly relieved that I get to go to work tomorrow. Hopefully, he'll be symptom free tomorrow and ready to go back to school/daycare on Wednesday.
