Well it started last Friday night....Jackson woke up throwing up. Saturday he spent the morning throwing up every. twenty. minutes. That afternoon he and I decided to miss Daddy's graduation (he just got his masters! yay daddy!) and head to the ER for some much needed fluids by IV. After 5 long hours we were home and feeling better. Sunday, he had his energy back but instead of throwing up it was coming out the other end. I'll spare you the details of it but lets just say it happened 30-40 times that day. Then Monday and Tuesday it was like someone had sucked all the life out of him and he was back to throwing up. He had no energy and could not even stand up.....I am serious when I say he didn't take a step for 48 hours, not one. Wednesday morning he was all better, full of energy, happy, and very hungry. Finally it was over.

Then I served them their lunch and Olivia puked all over the plate. Fabulous.

Now she isn't quite as sick as Jackson was, I am still cleaning up puke and administering meds round the clock. And to make matters worse, I just had to cancel her very first birthday party home for tomorrow. The party she has very much been looking forward to since Jackson's birthday back in March. So we rescheduled. When you ask? Well of course next weekend, you know the weekend we MOVE! Yeah, it is going to be insane.

Now if you will excuse me I am off to make yet another lunch of Jello and saltines.

  2. Oh DeeDee, praying for HEALTH, and CONGRATS PAUL ON YOUR MASTERS DEGREE!!! WOHOO!!!!!
