Day four.

Enough already.
This stinks. Literally.
It's officially day four of this flu. I wish I could express how unbelievably well Olivia is handling all of this. I figured for sure we would be in the hospital at least for some fluids. She's doing great, all things considered.
The much anticipated diarrhea started Saturday afternoon and has continued. I'll spare you the gory details, but Zac finally witnessed an "episode" last night and said the next time something like that happens, call the ambulance! Believe me. I wish they answered calls like that.
The vomiting has slowed tremendously. She only tossed her cookies, I mean Pedialyte, twice yesterday. However, I'm typing this today at 1:00 am, after cleaning up a huge disaster from both ends. Hopefully this isn't how the day continues. We are supposed to head to Peoria for some labs in the morning, but the way things are looking, I think we'll skip that.
Anyway, nothing like waking up on a Monday morning to read about someone's bodily fluids, huh? Sorry. Have a great day!

And I was hoping it would be over by now. Whenever Christian gets a stomach bug it lasts for days. One time he threw up for seven days straight and of course Ryan was traveling. I don't know what it is about him and the flu, but it just knocks him out.
At least it sounds like no one else has gotten it yet! Lets hope that continues!!! I hope you got some sleep last night and that today is a much, much better day! Praise God Olivia is handling all of this so well! It's amazing how much stronger she is now that her little heart is fixed :)

Look on the bright side. At least it's only Olivia. I was awakened at 5 by the sound of Ethan puking. Thankfully Jason was still here. Now Gavin's thrown up, Jason's on the road & my stomach feels a little gurgly. Not sure if it's psychosomatic or what. Let's hope Tova only has the squirts - she's not very likely to hit a bucket...
