Sick....

BOTH Thomas and I were sick today....yeah, vomiting, fever, chills. Needless to say we sent little man to the babysitters to get him out of the house and away from it all** (plus there is no way I could take care of him, I bearly had enough strength to stand up). He is fussy (has been since yesterday) but no fever, so as long as he is still eating and staying hydrated I think he is going to be OK even though I do think his tummy hurts a little bit. Thomas and I spent the day drifting in and out of sleep (more sleeping than not). He's eaten nothing all day and I managed to get down some rice for dinner just now(I got sick about 8 hours before him so I am feeling "better" before him) after over 24 hours of crackers, but I am just praying it actually stays down. Right now it's debatable....

**For the record, I would have kept him here to BF because I know it is important to BF while you are sick so baby gets anti-bodies (luckily I BF'd all day yesterday even after my fever kicked in around 7 last night so it did benefit him), but with Thomas so sick too we just couldn't do it.

Yuck, yuck...we have it going through our house as well--only Em started it and seems to be taking the longest to get over it. We saw the dr. today and they say it should be very short lived, hopefully that's the case for you guys as well! Feel better soon!

I knew germs spread quickly, but man, that was QUICK! I can't believe you both got sick together.

Get well soon! Hopefully, Cullen won't get it too and you got enough antibodies to him. Feel better soon.
