still raining (outside and in)

Still throwing up. Once Wednesday. Twice yesterday. Three times today. I'm no genius, but it seems to me that this is getting worse, not better. I am mad at myself for letting him be sick for so long without doing anything about it, but I really did think he was getting better. His symptoms keep coming and going (for days at a time) and it throws me off. Went to the doctor (finally) yesterday. It's been two and a half weeks of a sick boy and I am growing weary.  Weary of cleaning up body fluids, yes, but mostly weary of seeing my baby sick and not knowing what is wrong. The wondering is stressful and exhausting. As we speak tests are being run to see what is up. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will have some answers tomorrow. Saying lots of prayers that we can start to get this baby healthy and back to himself. I think he is okay, but I just want to get him eating and keeping food down to know that he will gain some weight back. He is looking so skinny, with a big bloated tummy. The good news is he's still happy.
And so sweet.
And extra cuddly.
And we adore him more than ever. The other good news is that he has thrown up enough over the past two weeks that I can predict it coming and can get him to the sink or toilet in time to avoid having to clean up carpet or sheets or furniture. I'm pretty happy about that :). I'm feeling hopeful that tomorrow is a new day and maybe he will be feeling better. I'll let you know.

Poor little guy. I hope he gets feeling better and you can get back to a normal routine (without cleaning up bodily fluids)!

we were sick for a few days once while it took Lucy over a week to kick it. Doc said it usually took little ones 1-2 weeks to get over an illness we could get over in a day or two. Sure wish it was the other way around. poor kids.
