Wow!! I could share some outrageousely funny stories with all of you...but I won't because they are equally disgusting stories and I don't want to gross out my viewers anymore than I already have from the previous post. :) What have I learned over the past 2 days?! Well, I've learned that Rauly is tough as nails. I've learned that Shepherd can fit his entire head in to the toilet while he's throwing up. I've learned that no matter how much you scrub the carpet, red juice in the form of throw up permanently stains. I've learned what each of my children's warning signs are before they need to vomit. I've learned that you can never have enough Lysol, Anti-Bacterial hand soap, Pedialyte and Tylenol. I've learned a whole lot more than that - but I'll just stop there! :)
I took Rauly to the doctor today because she wasn't urinating and was acting very lethargic - we were concerned she was deyhdrated (gee...I wonder why?!). The doctor diagnosed the kids with Rotavirus...let me just say, that is one tough virus that kicked both of my kids rear-ends!! The site that I linked this post to said that children with Rotavirus can vomit over 20 times in 24 hours...that was my very unlucky son...poor Shep. He threw up over and over and over again...and still managed to be a little angel. I'm not joking or being biased...Shepherd was the sweetest little angel child last night...saying "thank you mommy" as I rubbed his back while he threw up in to the toilet, or "I love you mommy" as I wiped his brow while he had a fever. I have been one very proud mom of both my little troopers. Thankfully the doctor said they should be over the worst of it...hallelujia! Here's a HUGE thanks to Linda for taking off work early yesterday and for taking off today to help me with my babies. What a tremendous help she has been!!! Dennis came last night as well and read books to Shep, helped with bathtime and much much more!! Ya'll are such a blessing!!! Chad is coming home to us tonight - please say a prayer for safe travels and for my kiddo's quick recovery!!! :) Thanks guys!
