The Soggy Saga Continues...

Tuesday Julie had diarrhea. By bedtime she seemed mostly over her tummy bug. Her spirits were good, here energy level normal, and no more poop events.
But when Roper went to put her in her bunk she felt warm. The thermometer confirmed a fever of 99.6. At 5:30 she came and crawled into bed with mommy and daddy. At 6:30 she announced that she needed to get up NOW. On her way to the bathroom she barfed spectacularly. Three or four times.
More sleep, more barf, more sleep. She's drank some weak formula, sent it back up. kept down some apple juice and a few Teddy Grahams. Spirits were good, energy level high enough to fight with her sister.

Today, her temp is normal. But she slept until 1:15. She drank and has kept down some water and juice. She won't eat her Teddy Grahams today because she is afraid she will barf them up. She is cranky and clingy. So I'm not getting much done.
But, dinner is in the oven. (I'm making a brisket. It can stay in the oven bubbling away as long as I need it to.)

I do have to do laundry, but I can take that slowly.

Every day is a new adventure,

My favorite gift that I got as a wedding present was "The Green Machine," a combination shop-vac rug cleaner. It has presided over many a diaper or volcanic vomiting event, as well as juice spills, cat disasters and bathroom flood relief.

Hope the kiddo feels better soon, and that her illness does not cascade like con crud through the family.

Oh, yes. We have a Green Machine that gets regular workouts. :)

OOh - my sympathies! I SO do not miss that stage of life. (My baby is now 25 and if he vomits it is on his own floor and he can clean it up.

Hope she is feeling better and that, as Judi said, she keeps it to herself rather than sharing the wealth. (Cause you know, "a droplet based transmission really helps to spread the wealth")
